Ali then recalled an interesting story about the last time he met Shah Rukh at a dinner after he shot a cameo in Dear Zindagi.

“He mentioned that he really liked my song Rockstar for his movie Zero. He told me that ‘I am going to be playing a dwarf in my next film and would you let me use your song?’ And I said by all means. But unfortunately due to unstable political climate, it never worked out,” Ali said.

Ali Zafar performed Rockstar in Coke Studio Season 8 and the track was loved by all and sundry.
