Actress Alia Bhatt is all set for her upcoming film ‘Dear Zindagi’ which will hit the theatres soon. The recent reports revealed that Pakistani actor Ali Zafar has been replaced from the film due to the Pakistan artist ban issue.
It added that Tahir Raj Bhasin will play his role in the film.
When Asked Alia about the replacement in the film, she said, “Nobody is being replaced. The film will release in its full form. There isn’t much conversation happening around who’s being replaced and who’s not. So, we can leave the edge of that topic for sometimes since it has died down.”
Alia Bhatt gave this statement during the Absolut Elyx Filmfare Glamour and Style cover launch. She claimed that her role in ‘Dear Zindagi’ is similar to that of ‘Udta Punjab’.
“Dear Zindagi is closest to my life. I am not saying I am exactly that character but I relate to it the most. Getting pissed off with relationships, there is a dialogue in teaser 3, where I say I hate couples. That happens,” Alia said. “Not only me, but everyone will be able to see a shade of themselves in my character,” she added.
The film is slated to release on November 25. It is directed by Gauri Shind. It features Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Angad Bedi and Kunal Kapoor in the lead roles.
