Shah Rukh Khan has his New Year's Day treat ready for his fans. He has announced the title of Aanand L Rai's film. The movie, which will see Shah Rukh in a never-seen-before avatar -- reportedly as a dwarf -- also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif and is titled 'Zero'.

Shah Rukh and Rai engaged in banter over the pending announcement on Twitter. The actor asked the filmmaker about when should the title be announced, and they reached a conclusion to give it out to the fans at 5 p.m. on Monday. The banter unfolded with a series of sketched images of Shah Rukh and Rai, who have collaborated for the first time for this project. The teaser of the film left everyone stumped as they saw SRK in the getup of a dwarf. The movie pays homage to a number of Bollywood movies and seems to be set in the 70s. The backdrop of the film also seems to be that of Bollywood, especially the era of Rafi songs and Shammi Kapoor's dance moves. At the end of the teaser, SRK has a quirky and funny monologue - 'Hum Jiske Piche Pad Jaate Hai Uski Life Bana Dete Hain'. SRK as a dwarf looks extremely adorable and endearing at the same time. The movie is slated for a December 2018 release.
