Zee Cinema - The World’s Largest Theatre for Hindi Movies presents the World Television Premiere of the well-written narrative, Dear Zindagi on 23rd April, Sunday at 12 Noon.
Exhibiting the distinctive pairing of Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, Dear Zindagi bears a relevant and encouraging message to embrace life’s highs and lows.
Directed by English Vinglish fame Gauri Shinde, Dear Zindagi is a refreshing take on life and relationships that starkly stays away from formula-ridden Bollywood. The film also offers soulful renditions from Amit Trivedi along with a credible ensemble cast. Talking about his character Dr. Jehangir Khan, actor Shah Rukh Khan said, “I just thought he should be the person having similar issues most of his patients have. Because I think, every person, every human being at some point in their lives have similar issues of acceptance, love, relationships, inferiority or superiority complexes. I didn’t want Jehangir to be preachy who is giving of knowledge because he is educated in it. He just narrates a life incident and says this is it, now you take your call, make your choice.”
Dear Zindagi revolves around Kaira (Alia Bhatt), a talented cinematographer who is a spirited, young woman awaiting her life’s biggest break. But deep inside the façade, lies a soul despised and dejected, grappling with wrong men in her life. Unsettled and shackled, she reaches out to Dr. Jehangir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan), a psychiatrist in Goa. It’s on his couch, she feels confident about voicing her fears for the first time.
Will Kaira be able to put her insecurities to rest?
