In a social media post on Thursday, Anushka recounted the “beautiful coincidence” that ‘Zero’ is for her.

“In the journey of our four films, I have seen myself grow and I have seen you being there and showing the same enthusiasm and support for me to shine.”
‘Zero’ is directed by Aanand L. Rai, writer Himanshu Sharma, and actor-producer Shah Rukh. In the film, releasing on Friday, Anushka essays a woman with cerebral palsy.

On her character, Anushka said: “She is an embodiment of strength, happiness, resolve and love and I am so proud to present this incredible person to you. I wish this world had more people like Aafia.”
