The great creative partnership between Shah Rukh Khan and director Aanand L Rai has gone kaput, after the thundering failure of Zero. Apparently the duo which couldn’t stop singing each other’s praise and had sworn to work together on various projects (including, apparently, believe it or not, a sequel to Zero) have called off their future partnership plans. All of it.
Sources say Shah Rukh has stopped taking Rai’s calls. According to a source, “Shah Rukh blames Rai entirely for the fiasco that was Zero. What was Aanand Rai thinking? This is what Shah Rukh now wonders, like everybody else.” So shocked is Shah Rukh by the enormity of the failure, both creative and financial, that he has put all his future projects on hold including the hit franchise Don .
“They had mutually agreed to share a creative partnership. But after the release of Zero I don’t think Shah Rukh even wants to see Aanand Rai’s face,” says a friend of King Khan.
Oh well, in showbiz, if nothing succeeds like success then nothing fails like failure either.
