The trailer of Shah Rukh Khan’s most anticipated movie ‘Zero’ is all set to release in a grand style on the star’s birthday on November 2. A special event will be organised at IMAX Wadala, which has been decked up to look like Meerut.

But Shah Rukh Khan’s close friend Aamir Khan has caught the trailer early and can’t stop raving about it.

“Guys, I just saw the trailer of Zero. Just one word... OUTSTANDING!!! Congratulations @aanandlrai ! #Katrina is fantastic! @AnushkaSharma is unbelievable! @iamsrk, you have outdone yourself! Can’t wait to watch the film!” Aamir wrote, and signed off with his trademark, ‘love, a’.

Shah Rukh reciprocated by sharing a picture of their meeting, with the caption, “Hug from the Thug! Beat that!”

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who has also seen the trailer, praised director Aanand L Rai. “Watched #ZeroTrailer [3.13 minutes]... Get ready to be surprised big time... SRK, Anushka, Katrina - the characters will catch you unawares... Aanand L Rai is synonymous with emotional films and there’s a strong undercurrent of emotions on display here,” he wrote.

‘Zero’ is the story of Bauua, a vertically challenged man played by Shah Rukh. Katrina plays a superstar and details of Anushka’s character haven’t been revealed so far.

The ambitious drama with amazing CGI will be released on Aanand L Rai.

Shah Rukh on Thursday shared two new posters of Zero, with each one giving fans a first look at Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma’s characters.
