Khan's last few films, Raees, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Fan, have not fared well at the box office, with the Imtiaz Ali directorial raking in a disappointing Rs 64.33 in the domestic market, as per Movie Box Office Collection. Khan, in an interview with Hindustan Times, reflected on the possibility of the failure of Zero at the box office and his consequent fate in the film business.

He told the publication, "God forbid, if this film doesn’t work, what will happen? Maybe, I won’t get work for six months or 10 months, but if I believe that my craft and art is good, I will continue to get work. Then, I will probably make a comeback which I have been doing for the last 15 years, or maybe, the comeback won’t happen."

He further said that the trade world is correct from their point of view in measuring the success of a film with the yarkstick of the business collected by the film, what is imperative for him is the story. " Main dekhta hoon ki iss film ki story kya hai? Or iss mein nayapan kya hai?" (I see what is the story all about? And what is new in this?)

Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero features Shah Rukh as a vertically challenged man named Baua Singh, Katrina Kaif as an actress battling alcoholism, and Anushka Sharma as a wheelchair-bound scientist. It is scheduled to release on 21 December.
