Gauri Shinde's movie Dear Zindagi, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt among others, is all set to be released on November 25. The film has been creating much frenzy among the fans ever since the teasers were released.

Dear Zindagi appears to be a light-hearted love story of a girl, who goes through different emotions in life. Although Shahrukh will be seen sharing screen space with Alia, the two will not be portraying any romantic character. Apart from Shah Rukh and Alia, the film also features Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Ali Zafar.

The makers of the movie incorporated a different promotional strategy for the film as no trailer has been released. Only three teasers were launched and that had created a curiosity among the viewers regarding the story of Dear Zindagi. Here are top 5 reasons to watch Dear Zindagi this Friday.

1) This is the first time Shah Rukh and Alia are sharing the screen space. Their adorable chemistry in the teasers suggests that this pairing will create a magic on the screen.

2) Gauri Shinde had earlier impressed all with the movie English Vinglish in 2012. She is known for making meaningful films that simply touch the heart.

3) The story of Dear Zindagi appears to be very refreshing. It is not the typical Bollywood romantic film where a man romances a woman, but a beautiful take on various human relationships.

4) Shah Rukh is one of the top Bollywood stars and he does not need to do a film that primarily revolves around a female character. While he agreed to play a non-central character alongside Alia, there has to be something special about Dear Zindagi.

5) It is being assumed that this movie will again present Shah Rukh with a role in which he can show his acting prowess. Dear Zindagi will apparently bring back the actor that Shah Rukh is and not just the star.
