Shahrukh Khan, Alia Bhatt starrer titled, ‘Dear Zindagi’


Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt’s romantic drama finally got a name. It is titled, ‘Dear Zindagi’. The film is slated to release mid-November.

A source says, “There were many thoughts about the title since the film is about an unusual love story. Many reports claimed it had been titled Walk The Talk and Project 51. But, ultimately, the entire team unanimously agreed that Dear Zindagi was perfect for the script because it shows Alia’s journey with four different characters and SRK.”

Directed by Gauri Shinde, the film will be co-produced by Dharma Productions and Shahrukh Khan’s production house.

Filmmaker Karan Johar shared the news on twitter:

#Red Chillies Entertainment...Dharma and Hope Productions are proud to present Gauri Shinde's next starring...SHAH RUKH KHAN and ALIA BHATT.

In the film, before falling for Shahrukh Khan, Alia Bhatt’s character will be seen dating four men namely, Aditya Roy Kapur, Ali Zafar, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi.

‘Dear Zindagi’ is slated to release on Diwali (October 28). “We want to avoid a clash with other films releasing the same month — Rock On 2 (November 11) and Kahaani 2 (November 25). So, we are looking forward to a mid-November date,” a source close to the project says.

The first schedule of the film went on floor in Goa. The picture taken on the film set is bit hazy but Alia looks carefree in a summery dress, holding a shoulder bag standing beside Shahrukh Khan looked rugged with bearded face, dressed in simple and carrying his suit in hand.

‘Dear Zindagi’ will mark Gauri Shinde’s second directorial venture after the highly acclaimed ‘English Vinglish’.
