Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt were teasing us with their constants tweets since a long time. We got the first glimpse of the movie when Alia Bhatt shared a prisma picture along with Shahrukh Khan. No wonder prisma became trendy after that. Then a series of tweets were exchanged between them in which Alia Bhatt asked some simple yet curious questions to Shahrukh Khan by hashtagging ‘Dear Zindagi’. Everyone was excited to see what these two actors have got to offer.
Our wait is finally over! A poster of their upcoming movie, Dear Zindagi, has got released. We cannot stop gushing over its feel-good vibe along with the usage of bright colours. Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt are seen riding a bicycle amidst the trees. The poster is uplifting. Alia Bhatt’s smile has lit up the entire poster whereas Shahrukh Khan’s charming appearance has swept every girl of her feet.
But the real surprise came when Red Chillies Production Company released the first take (or teaser) of the movie. It is like a breath of fresh of air amidst the thrillers and action movies that are churned out by Bollywood. It has been a long time since we have actually watched a movie which is not only light but has a pinch of life-related wisdom as well.
The teaser starts with Shahrukh Khan explaining about Kabaddi to Alia Bhatt. The scene transitions to something extremely heart-warming as Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt play amidst the waves of the ocean while a soothing background score chimes in our ears.
In the very next scene, they are seen riding bicycles, as Alia Bhatt says that she wants to be free. It hints towards the fact that maybe Alia Bhatt is going through some problems, and she is looking for an escape or a way to deal with them.
As she falls down, she asks for help from SRK, but stating, “Time’s up!” he rides away. Perhaps, SRK is playing the role of a mentor or life coach, and Alia Bhatt is taking his help. It’s been made clear earlier that Alia Bhatt and Shahrukh Khan will not share any romantic relationship in the movie.
It’s certainly a quirky step by Gauri Shinde, the director of English Vinglish. It will be interesting to see the lead pairs not sharing any romantic chemistry. The movie seems to be purely about living life in its purest form.
The movie also stars Aditya Roy Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi, Siddharth Shukla and Ira Dubey. Nothing has been revealed about their roles, so the mystery regarding the movie still sustains. The team has adopted a very different approach for the promotion. There will be no trailer for this movie, and around four takes will be released. We just cannot wait for the next 3 teasers, and we are sure that they are going to be as amazing and positive as the first one. The movie is getting released on 25th November’ 2016.
