All that glitters is NOT gold... Holds true for #Zero... Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that’s about it... Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits... 👎👎👎#ZeroReview pic.twitter.com/5Vq4h0hhrF

Fake 'Barak Obama' found SRK's performance 'Outstanding'. Really, Obama!?
Bauua was the first to react, gives witty remarks
However, it didn't take long for the fake reviews to reach Zero makers. Bauua Singh was the first to react. He gave a befitting reply to the fake reviews from his original Twitter handle. "Where are all these reviews coming from when we haven't even shown the film to anyone yet? If you have to spread lies at least spread believable lies!" he remarked.
'Itta bhi mat pheko ki lapeta hi na jaaye!'
Ama yaar abhi tak picture humne kisi ko dikhayi nahi, ye review kahan se aa gaye? 🤔 Itta bhi mat pheko ki lapeta hi na jaaye!@iamsrk @AnushkaSharma #KatrinaKaif @aanandlrai @RedChilliesEnt @cypplOfficial— Bauua (@BauuaSingh) December 19, 2018
Avoid the fake reviews, go watch the movie yourself
What was more surprising that some fans actually believed the 'reviews'. Our note: Please check the authentic Twitter handles of the critics before falling in the obvious trap. The movie, about Bauua's love quest, also features Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. It's released. Go watch!
