Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan, co-star in director Gauri Shinde’s slice-of-life film Dear Zindagi, out this Friday. Shah Rukh Khan plays life coach to Alia Bhatt’s character Kaira, an aspiring cinematographer dealing with romantic trouble. How much Kaira decides to be guided by Jahangir’s advice is yet unknown but Alia is very obedient in real life. A behind-the-scenes video of life on the sets of Dear Zindagi documents one such instance.
*Shah Rukh Khan tries to balance a showpiece on the table*
Alia: Should I help?
Shah Rukh: Ya, ya go there (pointing at the floor)
Shah Rukh: Kneel down I suppose, kneel down
Shah Rukh: Sach mein kneel down kar rahi hai
Realisation dawned on Alia just a little too late and by then, the entire crew was in splits.
The video is a listicle of funny outtakes from the sets, as the behind-the-scenes footage reveals. From Alia asking co-star Kunal Kapoor to ‘get out’ with an attempted angry expression to Shah Rukh playing with his finger gun to Gauri Shinde demonstrating odd expressions to Alia.
The video also features the rest of the cast – Ira Dubey, Angad Bedi – and Karan Johar.
