Contrary to recent rumours, Ali Zafar, it seems, will remain in Dear Zindagialongside Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan. Gauri Shinde recently spoke on the matter, completely denying the rumours of Ali Zafar being replaced in the film. “Nobody is replacing anybody,” a Pinkvilla report quoted her as saying. Why then have we not seen even a glimpse of the Pakistani actor in any of the teasers or songs released as promos for the film? It seems the Dear Zindagi director is trying to keep a low profile to avoid any unnecessary negative attention prior to the film’s releas. According to another source, Ali plays an important role in Alia’s character’s life. ”You can’t take him out of the plot,” states a report in the DeccanChronicle.
In the latest song released for the film titled, Just Go To Hell Dil, we are shown Alia Bhatt’s best friend, played by Ira Dubey, her love guru, played by Shah Rukh Khan and the man who has apparently broken her heart, played by Kunal Kapoor but there is no sign of Ali Zafar. Hope we are in for a sweet surprise!
Dear Zindagi is set to release on 23 Nomember.
