Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le: Watch Alia strikes SRK’s patent pose


Actress Alia Bhatt is a self-confessed fan of Shah Rukh Khan, with whom she got to feature in her latest flick ‘Dear Zindagi’. She also enacted the superstar’s characteristic pose with outstretched arms, in one of the songs.

The soundtrack of the ‘Gauri Shinde’ directorial included two reprised versions of the classic number ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’ from 1983 flim ‘Sadma’. One version has been sung by the melodious Arijit Singh and the other one has been rendered by Alia herself.

The video of Alia’s version of ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’ is out. In the two-and-half minute video, the 23-year-old actress has a dual avatar. One look has Alia in her ‘Dear Zindagi’ character Kaira, a cinematographer. In the look, Alia appears as herself singing and grooving to the music and she looks gorgeous. But, the highlight of the video is that the ‘Udta Punjab’ actress strikes the ‘trademark’ pose of her ‘Dimag Ka Doctor’ Jehangir Khan of ‘Dear Zindagi’.

Alia’s fondness for the ‘Dilwale’ actor is no secret. She is the youngest lead actress to star opposite Shah Rukh. Before ‘Dear Zindagi’ went on floors, the actress, in an interview to a leading daily, had revealed that Shah Rukh Khan’s songs were therapeutic for her. She also said that as a child she loved to dance to the songs from his films.

On the chat show ‘Koffee with Karan 5’, Alia had said that she always loved Shah Rukh and sharing screen with him was a surreal experience for her.

The reprised song ‘Ae Zindagi…’ has kept intact the original lyrics and tune by Gulzar and Ilayaraja, while composer Amit Trivedi had added electronic background music to it.
