The makers of ‘Dear Zindagi’ were looking to create magic on screen but what they did not anticipate was that the stars involved in the movie would create magic off-screen too! A source from the sets of the movie tells us that Alia Bhatt bonded big-time with Gauri Shinde during the film’s Goa schedule. “Every day after pack up, the two ladies would enjoy dinner together and read scenes thereafter to prepare for the next day’s shoot. Even if they would wind up shoot past 2 a.m., Alia and Gauri would make sure they spend time together. Despite the late night schedules, both would be present on the sets by 8 a.m.,” says the source. Stars are known to throw tantrums when they have to report early after a late night shoot, but Alia is a thorough professional.
AbRam accompanied his dad, SRK, on the Goa schedule. Every time the crew wrapped up shoot for the beach scenes, AbRam would jump in and have fun with everyone. Our source says, “SRK would play with AbRam and take him into the water. He would even take him for a joy ride on the ATB around the beach.” The last day of the shoot though was memorable for everyone. Shah Rukh proved once again that he is the most thoughtful star in the industry and he made sure to surprise everyone on the sets with a personalised gift. Our source says, “Each person was given well thought out books with individual notes and the observations made about them by the superstar were bang on! Alia too put together a thoughtful gift hamper for some of the crew members and everyone received a producer’s note.”
A movie made with so much love and affection is surely going to be a winner at the B.O. and we just can’t wait to watch it first day first show! The film will hit cinema halls on the 25th of November, 2016.
