While filmmaker Aanand L Rai is known for collaborating with many superstars such as Dhanush, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, he continued to experiment with storytelling rather than following any formula of commercial Bollywood films.

In a talk with IANS, Aanand shares why he prefers to believe in storytelling over formula, and why a movie like Zero starring one of the biggest superstars of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is a learning for him, not a failure.

When asked how he plans to include superstars for his projects, Aanand L Rai told IANS: “First, by looking at them as talented actors and not as superstars… about casting from a commercial perspective, like south Dhanush (Indian) Let’s bring Akshay sir from Hindi and Hindi so that when the movie comes out, both fans will gather at the theater to watch a movie, so I’m reconciled on a story.
