Shah Rukh Khan will next be seen in ‘Zero’ alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, two Bollywood ladies he has already worked with. Gearing up for release by December this year, the film’s distribution rights have already been sold for a whopping amount. 
 
If reports are to be believed, the all-India distribution rights of the film have been sold for Rs 100 crore on an advance basis. The report states that the movie will have to do a minimum of Rs 190 crore to break even. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan's last few films have been sold on minimum guarantee but ‘Zero’ is on an advance basis which means, in case of loss distributors can claim for the refund.
 
While the amount is big in itself, in comparison to Shah Rukh’s previous film, ‘Dilwale’, it's quite less. 
 
The trailer of the film will come out on November 3, Shah Rukh’s birth date. The film will also see Salman Khan and other stars in cameo appearances.
