Actor Anushka Sharma has picked quite a few distinct roles in the recent years and is now back on screen with Zero in a new role. She plays Aafia Yusufzai Bhinder, a wheelchair-bound NASA scientist with cerebral palsy in the film.
Zero also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif as a dwarf and an alcoholic movie star, respectively. As the film hit theatres this Friday, Anushka’s husband and cricketer Virat Kohli also took out time to watch the movie in Australia.
While the film has taken a hit with a negative word of mouth, Virat Kohli has loved it as he watched the movie in Melbourne three days before the Boxing Day Test.
He took to Twitter to appreciate Zero, especially his wife’s performance. He tweeted, “Saw @Zero21Dec and loved the entertainment it brought. I enjoyed myself. Everyone played their parts well. Loved @AnushkaSharma performance because I felt it was a very challenging role and she was outstanding.”

Meanwhile, the fans have trolled Kohli to the hilt for liking the film despite not being so good. Many feel that he had to tweet because it was his wife’s movie while there were also a few who went on to say that he is promoting the mega-starrer flick as it has not garnered the expected response from the fans.
Here’s how fans trolled Virat:
Bhai zero dekhkar khi zero pe mt out ho Jana…god bless you

As a fan of your will watch any match even you can’t score aTon but to watch a Zero with a Zero story is a Zeroed expectations.

Virat’s association with Bollywood thanks to his wife Anushka Sharma being a huge star and award-winning actress has led to megastar Shah Rukh Khan making a big revelation.
Recently in an interview to Times now, Shah Rukh Khan expressed a desire to play Virat Kohli on-screen.
“Virat,” SRK told Times Now when asked which cricketer would he like to play on screen, to which Anushka smiled and replied, “But you will have to grow a beard.”
“But I had grown a beard. In Harry Met Sejal, I looked just like Virat Kohli. Exactly like him,” the ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ Shahrukh replied.
Kohli has been in superlative form in the ongoing Test series in Australia with a century in Perth.
