Shah Rukh Khan's Dear Zindagi Has A Fan All The Way Across In Hollywood

Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt in Dear Zindagi


  • Ghostbusters director Paul Feig liked Alia and Shah Rukh film
  • Huge congrats to SRK and Alia on your wonderful performances, he tweeted
  • Dear Zindagi is directed by Gauri Shinde
New Delhi: If there's something cool on your neighbourhood cinema screen, who you gonna tweet? The stars of the film, of course. Ghostbusters director Paul Feig has (apparently) watched and loved Shah Rukh Khan's new film Dear Zindagi and said so on Twitter. Thus began a fulsome exchange of compliments between SRK, Mr Feig and Dear Zindagi co-producer Karan Johar, whose chat show Koffee With Karan Paul Feig has also seen, as it turns out. SRK, before responding to Mr Feig's tweet, returned the favour by watching Ghostbusters, this year's all-female reboot of the '80s comic-supernatural films. Dear Zindagi, which released last week, co-stars actress Alia Bhatt and is directed by Gauri Shinde, all of whom were named in Paul Feig's tweet on November 29.

Producer Karan Johar responded on behalf of his cast and director and received a response:

SRK replied a day later and was thanked by Mr Feig:

It's clear from Mr Feig's tweet that he and Shah Rukh Khan have already met but we're not quite sure when. In May this year, SRK issued a Twitter invite to Mr Feig, prompted by his wife Laurie's tweet about hoping to one day visit Mannat, the 51-year-old actor's Mumbai home.

Alia Bhatt and Gauri Shinde also responded to Paul Feig's praise:

Dear Zindagi, which is now almost halfway to the 100 crore mark, stars Alia Bhatt as a young cinematographer being counselled through romantic distress by Shah Rukh Khan's character. The film, Gauri Shinde's second so far, also stars Kunal Kapoor, Ira Dubey, Angad Bedi and Ali Zafar, with Aditya Roy Kapur making a special appearance.

Paul Feig's gender-bending Ghostbusters starred Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon in the roles originally played by Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, with Chris Hemsworth playing their secretary in an inspired piece of casting.
