Shah Rukh Khan is an integral part of ‘Dear Zindagi’: Alia Bhatt

There has been a lot of talk about Shah Rukh Khan’s character in ‘Dear Zindagi’ – a Gauri Shindhe directed film featuring Alia Bhatt in the lead.

Dismissing all rumours of Shah Rukh playing a side-role in the film, Alia said the superstar is an integral part of ‘Dear Zindagi’ and if character is removed, there would be no film at all.

She also said, ‘Dear Zindagi’ has a story that has never been told before.

“I’m very excited about the film, one of the biggest reason is that I’m working with Shah Rukh for the first time and working with him, being the same frame with him, doing a film with him.. I never thought that dream would come true”

“The other reason is.. it’s a very simple, sweet and unique story. It’s a story that has not been told before, a narrative that has not been opted for before.. Gauri has done a great job with the writing of the film”

“If you remove Shah Rukh Khan from the film, then there is no film. In that way you can say that he is a very integral part of the film” Alia said in an interview.

    Yes we Bhai fans are poors and losers. Because…..
    Bhai runs away from Eid in fear global king.

    Bhai is struggling to surpass 80cr mark lifetime that too during festive season.

    Bhai can’t give a HGOTY for 9 years..

    Calling Bhai a COWARD! Abey dumbistani it’s your global king who runs away from Eid not Bhai. So how does Bhai bcm COWARD & your global king bcm BRAVE???

  • Now all the loongiwalas are calling it content rich, classic and blah blah blah. After it’s disastrous BO performance the same sadakchaps will be giving excuses like king plays just a character role in it, it is just a special appearance of king, cameo of king, side role of king and blah blah blah!

    ##Mark my words!!!

  • Has been quite a while that I saw @challa commenting here at Indicine. Miss reading his comments as he is easily one of the best commentators here at Indicine.

  • So inshort i can book my tickets for it. bcoz i dont want to waste my money on any indian movie not starring SRK.

  • @makkhi-assrk-rk, you dumbass barking on the biggest megastar Aamir Khan who has given most memorable classics, biggest grossers of all time highest number of ATBB, ATHG? Who is akki, srk in front of aamir? Aamir has given highest number of classics and he is the most talented megastar unlike your money hungry greedy stars like srk and akshay who are worthless to compare to Aamir. Talk whatever you want against salman or ajay but never dare to bark rubbish against Megastar Aamir Khan. His name is enough to shatter each and every record. Get lost loser.

  • @Mukherjee only in your dreams. It’s aamir who is undisputed no. 1 megastar. Salman is 2nd. Aamir has given 4 ATHG which is the biggest record ever. Wait for Dangal and see how he will smash all records once again.

  • Before release ,srk is an integral part ,after it flop, srk was not in a full lead like what happened at the time of billu ,all songs belong to haklu ,based on film of haklu ,whole climax belong to haklu but when got flopped then they said it was not full lead. lol.

  • @Phenom : The so called clash king ran away due to fear of Sultan. So who is going to clash with Bhai ? You ? Rofl

  • Upcoming movies of Srk are looking great in terms of content. I hope the movies dont dissapoint. I will not talk about collections bcoz Srk is going through a bad phase and all his upcoming movies look offbeat.

  • @The Phenom, Idiot haklu fan did you even know the meaning of Coward…..before blabbering first go and check it in google….Coward are those who run away from the clash, not those who fix the date later and make the former one to run away from that date……But whom I am giving this lecture, srk fans are like “Chikna Ghada” whatever you do they will remain stupid….Forever..

  • @The Phenom, LOL what a logic comparing 2010 movie with 2016, but atleast before commenting here first look at your own star records, who was struggling to cross 25cr at the same time……But sorry yaar my bad expecting logic from haklu fans is like a “Birbal Ki Khichdi” which never cook…..and I can understand why you comment this, because you people always lives in past……I wish I am with you right now, then I give a Tight Slap on your face so that you can wake up (don’t take it otherwise I just want to wake you up nothing else trust me)…..I said tight slap because you people live in way back time, so to wake you up I have to slap you hard……

  • If SRK is 80 crore actor then pls name the actors of these films – Ra.1,Don 2,JTHJ,CE,HNY,Dilwale.

  • mr bollywood amir …
    you are a blind fan I m taking about 90s (1994-1999) go n check boi
    where amir despite of doing less movies fails to match other 4 stars …. he has given ATH but that all come after 2000…only salman has given ATHG before 2000 ….and after weekend films runs becoz of appreciation ….not becoz of star power ……I m not bashing aamir or anyone here…….

  • @Zuheeb, bro only Idiots like you can say Ready is a masala movie, and which action you are talking about, have you even watch the movie, 1st go and see it, and the action in the movie is also a part of the comedy…..Ready is a comedy movie…..and in every hindi movie there is a Romance, Emotion, comedy and some action without it Hindi movie is incomplete……whether it is Mughal-e-Azam or Sholay or Lagaan or Bajrangi Bhaijaan…..These are the ingredient of every Bollywood movies, the only difference is the quantity which is more or less….like in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, it is more in Emotional and less in Romance….

  • @javeda

    OMG! You are predicting that all their global king movies will release on Eid & Christmas in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and so on…. Hahaha. But the reality is their king is begging door to door to get even Republic day weekend. Also duniya ka sabse bada superstar runs away from Eid recently.

    Also some loongiwalas are chanting that Eid 2017 will have 7 back to back holidays (yes u r reading it correctly)…hahaha. I want to say those morons… Bhai jaldi se ILAAZ karwa lo apna!!!

  • @Lolman Fan- Also check in google who is the world’s biggest movie star and the most popular movie star in the world. Shameless Lallutard.

  • Lol..these people think SRK postponed Raees coz of Sultan ROFL…if that was the case then SRK wouldn’t have opted 26 Jan where already 2 big films were scheduled KAABIL & Badshaho…2 big films can survive on festive release but not on a single normal holiday but still SRK chose 26 jan….daring ??

    not a hidden fact Raees was postponed coz of SRK-ADI relation…even Dhoom2 was postponed for Don in 2006 for the same reason SRK-ADI relation…one can’t expect a clash between SRK- ADI, SRK-KARAN, SRK-FARAH,AAMIR-HIRANI etc…

    talking about FAN, the day your idol will cross at least 70crs with an offbeat/ non masala films like FAN, Talaash, kahaani…you’re welcome to bash SRK but alas your bhaijaan will never in his life :(

    coward ?? we all know the actor who is not ready to leave eid fest (200 is impossible without it)..the actor who is not ready to do anything other than masala films (fear of yuvraj, mamk,LondonDreams might still be coming in his dreams)

    like itna bhi kya darr yaar?? :/
    itna darr ki not even a single non commercial film in entire decade, seriously? ??

    masala films r considered as the safest films..even tiger shroff’s last 2 films were clean hit coz of that genre :P

  • omg so Ready was not an out an out masala film ??? like seriously? ?? better you should ask induce…they can answer it better i guess

  • ask indicine*
    and btw we all know who is struggling to cross 70crs if given a non commercial film like yuvraj,mamk,londondreams,veer :P

  • Hahaha

    Many have asked “who am I?” when comparing me to their Pluto King n the honest truth is I just like all of you asking that irrelevant rhetorical Q is that I am nobody famous but atleast I dont get strip searched at US airports….!

    How humiliating is that eh…?

  • @Akki Srk rk don’t try to act oversmart. You were bashing aamir indirectly. U called him industrial kid? What the hell did you mean by that? So what if his family is industrial background? All that matters is the talent. And he has much more talented than so called self made stars like akki and srk. Akki has done number of C grade movies and number of flops and disasters. Srk has only done repititive rom com and family drama movies and he had hardly done anything different. While Aamir has always raised the bar and gone beyond the script and done experimental roles which akkI, srk can never do. And HAHK was not a salman movie. It was more of a madhuri movie and lallu wss completely overshadowed and only smiled like a foolish shy girl. Even madhuri was paid more fees than lallu. So credit goes to madhuri. Overall madhuri also won the best actress award for HAHK. While lallu got Babaji ka thullu. Just 1 ATHG which was just like a fluke and not a single ATHG after madhuri’s HAHK. Huh. Aamir has 4 ATHG and with dangal he will have 5. So don’t compare anyone to Aamir. Aamir is way ahead of all others and Noone is worth comparing to him. Period.

  • @Phenom : Shuru koi bhi karey Khatam Salman ke fans hi karein gey …. Bhai ke fans se ulajhene se pehley Bhai ko jaan lete toh accha hota !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jai Ho.
