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.
