Trade pundits, commercial analysts, industry peeps and most importantly, the audience were left in shock when Thugs of Hindostan (Hindustan) failed to deliver what it had promised. A choppy plot, loose editing and mindless sub-lots let to a massive failure of this year biggest and most anticipated film.
After Aamir Khan, who is known for his creating new box-office records and setting new milestones with his films, opened up about the film's failure, even Katrina Kaif had spoken up about the entire Thugs of Hindostan (Hindustan) debacle.
Post 'Thugs' debacle, even Shah Rukh hasn't been able to shrug off the fear of his upcoming film – Zero's failure. Since his last few films – 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' and 'Fan' hadn't been able to make a blockbuster collection at the box office, Shah Rukh has a lot riding on the success or failure of Anand L Rai directed, Zero'.
Talking about what if the film meets the same fate as his last few films, Shah Rukh Khan opened up in an interview with Hindustan Times. The 'Badshah' said, "I can't change that, and if I can't change something, why should I think about it? If people feel that 'Zero' is very important for me, it's their feeling. 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. I will probably make a comeback which I have been doing for the last 15 years (laughs), or maybe, the comeback won't happen. The trade world has a point of view about a film's business, and they are right from their viewpoint," he added.
