Katrina Kaif has said that her character in the upcoming film ‘Zero’ did not derive inspiration from any industry whatsoever. Earlier, a tabloid had reported that Katrina apparently researched for her role in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer, by extensively reading about the trouble-filled lives that Hollywood actors Demi Moore and Lindsay Lohan are said to have faced.
“The only inspiration, the work that we did for creating this character was done between, Aanand sir, Himanshu (the film’s writer), and myself. There was no inspiration from any other industry. As per Aanand sir, I had everything needed for the role,” said Katrina while speaking to the media about her character at the trailer launch event of the film.
When asked as to what she learned from the film, Katrina said, “Everyday I learned something. Everyday I felt scared. I gained a lot from this film. We were trying to create something new together. For me as an actor, as a performer I learned a lot.”
Moving on to the trailer of the film, Shah Rukh can be seen romancing with both Anushka Sharma and Katrina. Commenting on the same, King Khan said, “This is a love story like no other, since it is a story about real love; and not the ones filled with fantasies.”
Replying to a question on whether the film portrays the victory of a common man or not, director Anand L Rai said that it is a story which shows how one should not take things for granted and how a common man fights his own self on his path to victory.
Anushka, who plays the challenging character of a scientist with cerebral palsy, said that it was challenging as she used to sit on the chair all-day long in order to get into the skin of the character, except for the breaks in between.”
I used to just come on the set and be there and only get up when I had to go for lunch or something. Otherwise, I used to just be on that chair on the set all the time,” she said.
