Despite protests and controversies surrounding casting Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ released and was praised by the viewers. And now, Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ is facing a similar problem for casting another Pakistani actor, Ali Zafar.
Ali’s absence from the film’s trailer made everyone curious about whether he has already been replaced in the film. There were reports that Tahir Raj Bhasin has replaced Ali and has even shot for a song sequence with Alia. However, the film’s director Gauri rejected all such reports, confirming that the actor is very much there! When quizzed on this, the filmmaker said, ‘Nobody is replacing anybody!’
‘Dear Zindagi’ also stars Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Angad Bedi and Kunal Kapoor and is scheduled to release on 23rd November. Check out a freshly released song from the film!
