On first of January, Shahrukh Khan tweeted the much awaited title of his upcoming film with Anand L Rai, ‘Zero’.

The Badshah of Bollywood used a poetic line to drop the title on twitter. He tweeted “टिकटें लिए बैठें हैं लोग मेरी ज़िंदगी की, तमाशा भी पूरा होना चाहिए! As promised, here’s the title of @aanandlrai's film”, roughly translated as “People have taken tickets to my life, the drama must complete! As promised, here’s the title of @aanandlrai's film”


His tweet was retweeted more than 10,000 times which is not surpirisng given King Khan has 32 million followers on twitter.

As soon as he tweeted these lines, fans and friends of Mithilesh Baria started pointed out that these lines were picked up from his published work named “chhoti chhoti baatein”. Several tweets tagging Shahrukh have appeared requesting the star to give credit to Mithilesh.

Mithilesh too had tweeted these lines in May 2015.
