With less than two weeks to go for the release of Aanand L Rai’s Zero (2018) starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, the makers have shared a behind-the-scenes look at the romantic number ‘Mere Naam Tu‘. Composed by Ajay-Atul, the song is choreographed by Remo D’Souza and picturized on Sharma and Khan in the corridor of a hotel.

“I was in the most comfortable costume of my entire life in that song. Usually when you think of an actress in a romantic song, it’s usually a very uncomfortable outfit,” Sharma shared, saying she wore the night-suit for 14 days during the shooting of the song.
