While demonetisation may have affected the last few releases to a certain extent, Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Dear Zindagi’ did not reel under the effects of the move. The Gauri Shinde-directed movie has taken a strong start at the box-office, with its first day collections reading approximately Rs 8.75crore.
The movie, that traces the journey of Alia Bhatt’s character Kaira through love, heartbreak and life, has also received largely positive reviews. Shah Rukh, who is seen as Kaira’s life coach Jehangir Khan, feels that the film puts forward some very important questions before the society in a sensitive manner and without being preachy.
‘Dear Zindagi’ also stars Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar, Ira Dubey and Angad Bedi in pivotal roles.
