With two teasers out, Kaira and Jehangir (aka Alia and Shahrukh) have successfully managed to build the curiosity around their next film – Dear Zindagi. Gauri Shinde, the director of the movie enamoured us with English Vinglish, which marked Sridevi’s comeback, and we are sure she won’t fail to do the same this time around as well. While speculations were rife that the two main leads would be romancing each other, the makers of the November release made it clear that this wasn’t true. Since we are an impatient generation and can’t really wait any longer for the movie, we thought of gathering as much information as possible and making it available to you guys. So cheggit out.
As seen in the first teaser, Alia dons the hat of a cinematographer who is busy with her work and is confused with her life and the difficult choices it presents you with (don’t all of us girls already feel a connect to the character?). Shahrukh, who plays an extended cameo in the film, is Alia’s life coach and guides her through the difficulties in life (if only we could have a mentor like SRK in our lives). One thing that came across quite evidently in the teasers was that Shahrukh is trying to teach Alia how to celebrate life and make the most out of it. This movie is already giving us inspiration feels.
Yes, obviously Alia and King Khan are a part of this movie but there are four other actors who are also playing major roles. Aditya Roy Kapur, Angad Bedi, Ali Zafar and Kunal Kapoor are principal characters of the film. They play Alia’s love interests in different phases of her life and we are guessing that SRK plays the therapist-cum-life-coach who helps her make the right decisions about her love life. If reports are to be believed, Ali Zafar plays a rockstar- passionate about his music and love, Angad plays Alia’s childhood sweetheart who is the owner of restobar, Kunal plays a film producer who invests in her film whereas Aditya is a charming furniture dealer. Phew! That would definitely be a tough choice to make.
This coming of age rom-com is all set to make its way to the big screen on 25th November, 2016. On SRK’s advice, Gauri has decided to unveil four teasers of the movie instead of a full-fledged trailer. The idea behind this strategy is to “keep the magic of the cinema alive and not reveal crucial details about the movie”. There is no doubt that they are definitely successful in doing this because the Internet is being broken with people guessing what the movie is all about.
Hope this piece of information satisfies your curiosity for now. Watch this space and we will make sure we keep updating you guys with the details when we get to know more. Till then you could join us in binge-watching Dear Zindagi – Take 1 and Take 2 (*munches popcorn*).
