Veteran Bollywood actor, Shah Rukh Khan is promoting his upcoming film Zero in the most innovative and interesting way. As part of their promotional campaign, director Anand L Rai welcomed Shah Rukh’s character from the film on Twitter.
Shah Rukh Khan is known for his humorous and witty nature and that is clearly visible in the friendly banter between him and his character from the upcoming movie, Bauua Singh on Twitter. The character’s account went live on 25th October and since then the fictional Bauua and Shah Rukh have been exchanging tweets.
In the first tweet, the Zero character introduced himself and clarified that everyone should respect him otherwise, he will kill them with kindness.
Main jo hoon, main Bauua Singh hoon janaab…iss baat ka aap behad lihaaz kijiyega, aur jo nahin karenge…unse mohabbat kar kar ke main unhein maar daaloonga.
Taiyaar ho jao Twitter waalon! Aa gaye hain Bauua Singh!

Soon, both of them started an exchange of tweets and the friendly banter will surely lighten your mood. Bauua took the opportunity and called Shah Rukh Khan out for his resemblance with him but, he disapproved of the Kal Ho Na Ho star’s style sense.
Arre bhai Sharukh @iamsrk! Meri mummy ne aaj aapko bahut bada compliment diya! Boli aap mere jaise dikhten hain!!!!🤔 humne kaha haan dimple toh same hai par dressing sense apna thoda theek karo guru!!! 🙄

Shah Rukh, putting his comical expertise to full display responded that he believes he can never have the style sense of Bauua however, their dimples are definitely their similarity.
.@BauuaSingh meri mummy kehti thi aadmi kapde banata hai, kapde aadmi ko nahi! Aapki DP dekh ke lagta hai ki saat janam mein bhi mera dressing sense aap sa nahi ho payega.Baaki dimples hain mere aapke jaise, uske liye thanks! Tum bahut Kachhe insaan!! oops, Achhe insaan lagte ho! https://t.co/aPvh6ajYY3

In another exchange, SRK had an inquiry for Bauua which he tweeted. “Suna hai tum jiske peeche lag jaate ho, life bana dete ho…tumhare peeche koi lag jaaye toh kya banate ho bhai?” Bauua responded with an Owl emoji to answer the query.

In a tweet yesterday, Bauua shared an illustrated image of himself in undergarments, revealing that even his shorts are stitched by ‘Loois Vitton’ [sic] himself. We don’t doubt him, after all, he is a celebrity in his own league.
Humara toh kachcha bhi Loois Vitton khud silta hai. pic.twitter.com/CN9WevZ7XX

It’s a very unique way of promoting the film because the fun fictional character (which is also SRK) is surely creating anticipation in fans who now want to know more about Bauua, and subsequently the film. The only way to find out more, of course, is by watching the highly anticipated film which is slated for release on 21st December, 2018. The drama/science fiction features an ensemble cast starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and the late Sridevi.
The movie’s official trailer will release on 2nd November, 2018 which is Shah Rukh’s birthday.
