New Delhi: Director Gauri Shinde's decision to reveal her film Dear Zindagi in multiple teasers instead of a trailer is paying rich dividends. Dear Zindagi Take 2, titled Always Recycle, released on Monday and now it's viral. Take 2 has more than three million views on YouTube already.
- Kiara and Jahangir's philosophical exchange is simple and relatable
- Alia Bhatt stars as a young filmmaker, who isn't as funny as she thinks
- Shah Rukh is Alia's therapist who brings perspective to her life
The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, with him playing her life coach. In the new snippet, we learn that Kiara (Alia), who is a filmmaker, cannot crack good jokes and her therapist Jahangir Khan (SRK) helps her recycle the jokes because he believes, "When your jokes are beyond repair, recycle them." The best thing about Kiara and Jahangir's philosophical exchange is that it's simple and relatable.
The slice-of-life drama looks endearing, particularly Alia's rapport with SRK. Add to that, the film's delightful music composed by Amit Trivedi.
On October24, the makers also released a new poster which was a precursor to the second take.
Dear Zindagi, also starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Kunal Kapoor, will release on November 25. The film is co-produced by Gauri Shinde's Hope Productions, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Gauri Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment.
