The first teaser for Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi has arrived - and it is very much a teaser.
The short one-and-a-half minute clip barely reveals any plot so we’ll have to draw on what we already know.
Shah Rukh Khan appears to be playing a psychiatrist to Alia Bhatt’s character in the film, who simply ‘wants to be free!’ after a string of relationships that may or may not have worked out.
But don’t worry, it doesn’t look as sombre as it sounds. The film, directed by English Vinglish’s Gauri Shinde appears to be a crowd-pleaser in the same vein as her debut, which starred Sridevi in an endearing role. Both films have real, grounded characters going through a transformational phase in life. It isn’t just Alia who wants to be free, because if the opening shot of this trailer is anything to go by, SRK’s character also comes with some daddy issues.
It was rumoured that Dear Zindagi was once titled Walk and Talk, which makes it sound like one of the Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight movies. Whatever might be the case, the film seems like a solid comedy drama with good central performances.
Dear Zindagi arrives in theatres on November 25 and also features Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Ira Dubey.
