Zero: Shah Rukh Khan's Bauua Singh responds to fake Twitter reviews ahead of film release
Fake reviews of Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif's upcoming film Zero have been making the rounds on Twitter.
Before Shah Rukh Khan's highly-anticipated film Zero could hit the cinemas, reviews on Twitter have been making the rounds. Twitter handles impersonating not just popular film critics but also celebrities have shared their reactions to the film and many users have been unable to tell them apart from the real ones.
Khan has responded to the tweets as his character Bauua Singh, saying that the makers are yet to screen the film for anyone.

Just finished watching an Indian movie #ZERO . I'm speechless and amazed at the same time. Why don't hollywood make such films?
Zero is an excellent movie.#SRK is my new favourite. Best of luck #kingkhan and Mr.L Rai for Zero.

Watched #Zero. #ZeroReview: It blends drama, emotions extraordinarily. The screenplay is riveting and keeps you hooked. The icing on the cake being Shah Rukh Khan's towering act. A terrific film that stays in your heart. after the screening has concluded. A must, must watch! — Rajeev Masand (@RajeevMasnd) December 19, 2018
ZERO has been watched. It is an entertaining saga that blends emotions, humour and drama in adequate doses. It is powerful, engaging, emotional as well as compelling. The combination of SRK & Aanand L Rai works like a dream. Full review on ETC tomorrow. #Zero #ZeroReview — Komal Nahta (@KomaINaahta) December 19, 2018
#OneWordReview#Zero: DISAPPOINTING. Rating: ⭐️ All that glitters is NOT gold... Holds true for #Zero... Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that’s about it... Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits... #ZeroReview pic.twitter.com/5Vq4h0hhrF — Taran Adarsh (@Taran_aadaarsh) December 19, 2018
Done with #Zero screening.
It's beautifully written, acted & crafted movie. It's certainly one of the best movies of the year. Everything's in place: the direction, cinematography,VFX,music & especially acting.#ZeroReview- Complete family entertainer with emotions as its USP

Translation: Buddy, where are all these reviews coming from when we haven't even shown the film to anyone yet? If you have to spread lies at least spread believable lies! — ZERO (@Zero21Dec) December 19, 2018
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero will release in theatres on 21 December.
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
