Earlier, Shah Rukh and Rai engaged in banter over the pending announcement on Twitter. The actor asked the filmmaker about when should the title be announced, and they reached a conclusion to give it out to the fans at 5 p.m. on Monday. The banter unfolded with a series of sketched images of Shah Rukh and Rai, who have collaborated for the first time for this project.
The never-seen-before avatar of Shah Rukh was received with lots of love. Diana Penty who has collaborated with Rai in Happy Bhaag Jayegi tweeted, ''Haha...tooooo good!!''
Soon after the title announcement, #2ZERO18 became Twitter's top trend. Fans went gaga on seeing their favourite star in such a challenging role.
