Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment released the teaser of his upcoming film ‘Zero’ on the very first day of the new year and this was a huge surprise for his fans. The film will only release on December 21 but the people are already going gaga over the teaser. It is very well liked by the people and has already crossed 20 million views in jusr four days. This very well shows that huge fan following SRK has across the world.
SRK even dedicated a tweet for his fans, thanking them for making “Zero feel like a Hero” as the film’s teaser received such good response on the internet. Below is what he had tweeted:
Thank u all for making Zero feel like a Hero. Sometimes our importance in life is not who we are, but what we make others become by our presence in their lives. @aanandlrai ‘s ‘Zero’ stands for that. #Zero20Million

SRK’s story of his entry into the film industry and the gradual success he achieved in life is hidden from none. It’s his hardwork, talent and ability to take on any situation very well that helped him reach where he is today. And his fans have always liked his work and supported him in all his endeavors.
But recently, SRK did something, probably unintentionally, that his fans did not approve of. He used a quote introducing his film that was appreciated a lot by his fans. But eventually, it was discovered that the quote was copied from a writer named Mithelesh Baria and he wasn’t given due credits by SRK. Take a look at SRK’s tweet below:
टिकटें लिए बैठें हैं लोग मेरी ज़िंदगी की, तमाशा भी पूरा होना चाहिए!

This made Twitter flood with tweets requesting as well as demanding credits for Mithelesh. Here are some of the tweets people made to SRK to get the actual author’s work recognized:
The words you have used were written by @mithelesh in 2015.
Dont you feel he deserves credit?
As an artist I’m sure you will gladly acknowledge the work of another @iamsrk pic.twitter.com/uus2OhYafX

Dear Sahrukh khan
आपको आने वाली फ़िल्म के लिए ढेर सारी शुभकामनाएं , और साथ ही साथ @mithelesh जी को शुभकामनाए क्यूंकि *टिकटें लेकर बैठें है..*this word written by @mithelesh in 2015
Dear शाहरुख आपसे गुजारिश है ये word use करते वक्त @mithelesh को credit मिलना अनिवार्य है..

Above lines are so beautiful but it will appear much much beautiful when the actual writer @mithelesh #mbaria will get its due credit.
You being a great actor, art lover, humble n responsible person… We are expecting you to understand this concern.

And like the real King SRK is, he took to Twitter thanking Mithelesh Baria for his book from where the quote was taken and also thanked him for the quote. Take a look at SRK’s tweet below:
बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद। आपकी किताब मिली और पढ़कर बहुत अच्छा लगा। सोशल मीडिया पर आपने साबित कर दिया की हर जगह पर अच्छी बातें ही पसंद आती हैं। और “टिक्केटें लिये…” वाली पंक्तियों के लिए भी शुक्रिया । pic.twitter.com/XFg5xhcyeK

Just like SRK acknowledged the writer’s work, his fans acknowledged his acknowledgement. Here is what they tweeted:
