Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif
Directed by Aanand L. Rai of Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu fame, Zero has not had the desired effect with fans and critics alike which the makers would have liked. Critics have panned the film while fans have trolled it on social media websites, discouraging others from watching the movie. However, this isn’t the reason why Ranbir Kapoor doesn’t plan to watch the movie.
For those who have seen the Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma-starrer, know that, in the film Katrina Kaif’s boyfriend (played by Abhay Deol) has been portrayed as a lying, cheating moviestar. And according to a report in Pinkvilla, the character is similar to what rumours about Kat and Ranbir’s relationship turned out to be after he allegedly cheated on her.
Be that as it may, a source also seems to have confirmed this rumour. “Ranbir got to know of Katrina's sequences in the film and was left highly amused. He, however, doesn't plan to watch the scene or even the film for that matter,” a source told an entertainment portal.

Katrina plays Babita Kumari in the film, a depressed yet immensely successful Bollywood star, who has been cheated on and left heartbroken because of her movie star boyfriend Aditya Kapoor’s (Abhay Deol) deeds. By the end of this storyline, Katrina gets herself together and mounts the courage to give it back to him and how.

Meanwhile, Zero has been struggling at the box-office as well. The film is yet to touch the Rs 100 crore mark (nett) at the domestic box office, despite it being a week since its release. Usually, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan or Shah Rukh Khan movie makes Rs 100 crore on its opening weekend itself. It’ll be interesting to see what Zero ends up making in its lifetime run at the box-office.
