If you have seen the teasers and posters of Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi‘, then you might as well have seen the fresh pairing of Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt. The movie has a feel-good factor to it and we loved the interesting chemistry between SRK-Alia.
But, there have been people who have had the weirdest reactions to this new pairing. However, lead actress Alia is unperturbed by these reactions and has a pretty strong and positive outlook towards the film and her pairing with SRK.
In a recent interview with a renowned daily, Alia was quizzed if she had any jittery feelings about working with King Khan and what’s her take on audience reactions, here’s what she said: “Of course, I was a bit nervous because people were like, “What are they doing?” and “Wow, can they work together?” I kept telling people to leave it to the imagination, because the kind of role and story it is, the casting is completely apt. Now, I am really excited that people are also excited to see both of us together. They want to see the film, and there’s an air of positivity. Right now, I don’t think anyone can pinpoint as to what kind of film it is. All you can get is a happy feeling and that’s most important.”
She further added, “This movie was totally different, because, honestly, I don’t think that there is a reference for a film like this. At the same time, it’s familiar, because when I’m talking about life and the problems in life, it does feel normal and real. So, while it felt real, the idea of it being a Hindi film was exciting and new. Even though you can’t compare it to anything, it’s a relatable film. I related to the part well. I know I am young, but the role is also of a young girl. Maybe not as young as I am, but she’s also in the same age group. She also feels the same things that most young people go through – they are a bit lost, they don’t know what they want from life, they don’t know what to do about their career, etc. So, I am asking questions and Shah Rukh is responding to them. Even our (teaser) videos have the same essence and ethos.”
‘Dear Zindagi’ is helmed by Gauri Shinde (of ‘English Vinglish’ fame). The movie is set to hit the cinema halls on November 25, 2016.
