King of Romance Shahrukh Khan (SRK) and Alia Bhatt visited the millennium city to promote their upcoming film ‘Dear Zindagi’ slated to be released on 25th November. Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, the film is directed by Gauri Shinde.
The starcast along with director Gauri Shinde launched the new song of the film ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’ at a press conference organized in Leela, Gurgaon.
The film has created lot of buzz ever since the trailer and promos of the film were released. Heartbreak, mellifluous songs and the astounding chemistry between SRK and Alia are the high points of the new film ‘Dear Zindagi’.
SRK playing a psychologist in the movie was very forthcoming as he said that his role was more of an extended cameo. Addressing the media, he said “We live in a man’s world unfortunately. Sans any preaching, whatever and however a woman does can never be wrong. Woman never wants someone to resolve their problems, but they want someone to listen to their words without judging them. The content of the film is extremely strong, and have no qualms in saying that the film is ‘Kaira-centric’ meaning revolving around Alia Bhatt’s character in themovie.”
Gauri Shinde of ‘English Vinglish’ fame needs no introduction as her first film struck a vibrant chord with the movie goers. When quizzed if people would go to watch the film just because of the star-factor, she remarked, “The content of the film and SRK are no different, rather on the contrary they are all integrated, so which factor really prevails does not really matter at the end of the day. Even if people would go to watch the film because of the starcast, that is a clear indicator that they have appreciated and loved the movie. I really believe stardom doesn’t overshadow the content.”
In her brief interaction with the press, Alia Bhatt who seemed elated with her role in the film shared, “After watching the film, you’d wish to have someone like ‘JUG’ (Jahangir Khan-SRK’s name in the movie) in your life. I have learnt numerous things from my father, and one advice from him being that I should stop bothering about giving an “out of box” performance since I still don’t know what it is to be “in a box”. As far as the movie goes, I am sure people would love the movie and appreciate the hard work and passion of the entire team.”
