After releasing a first look earlier on Wednesday, it was revealed that Shah Rukh and Alia Bhatt starer Dear Zindagi would not have an extended theatrical trailer, but three teasers, titled Take 1, Take 2 and Take 3.
SRK shared the first one, titled ‘Life Is A Game’ Take 1, and the one-odd minute teaser reveals much about the tone of the film. Much like Shinde’s last film English Vinglish, Dear Zindagi also deals with breaking free, but of a different kind. In this teaser, Alia Bhatt is seen spending time with Shah Rukh Khan, who is reported to be her therapist/life coach.
Watch the teaser of Dear Zindagi Take 1:
The two are in goa, when SRK tells her to play “kabbadi with the sea”. This is a cue to let go and just have a good time, and she is seen struggling with it, but slowly, starts to get with the programme. They’re also shown riding around Goa and generally chilling out.
As we see the bubbly Alia quizzing bearded Shah Rukh Khan with her queries, the sweet humour in the film doesn’t go miss.
The Gauri Shinde helmed film, stars Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan in the lead roles, along with an ensemble of male actors including Aditya Roy Kapoor, Ali Zafar, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi.
The film, slated for a November 25, 2016 release, had earlier been mired in controversy, owing to the involvement of Pakistani actor Ali Zafar in the cast.
It is yet to be confirmed whether or not his role will be edited out of the film. All eyes are on the release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil at the moment, which stars Fawad Khan.
