Now do you have any doubts about SRK's mutant skills to charm the hell out of anyone?
On the movie front, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen next in Aanand L Rai's Zero, where he playing a vertically challenged man. Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif play the female leads in the movie that is scheduled to release on December 21 this year.
There are also reports that he might start work on the Rakesh Kumar biopic.
