Gauri Shinde's next Dear Zindagi is turning out to be more than just a slice-of-life film. It's relatable and miles away from all the commercial hokum Bollywood has been churning out lately.
The second teaser aka Dear Zindagi Take 2 is funny and so every day. In the minute-long clip, Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt introduce themselves to each other as Jahangir Khan and Kaira. Later, they even engage in a fun banter where Khan insists that Bhatt cracks better jokes.
As promised by Shinde, the teasers are turning out to be little pockets of information that "invite the viewer bit by bit into the experience of the film."
Breaking through the clutter, the makers of Dear Zindagi have adopted a non-conventional way of easing viewers into their film. Instead of a full-fledged trailer, they will be releasing a series of teasers.
Scheduled to be released on November 25, Dear Zindagi also stars Ali Zafar, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi in key roles.
