What if we told you Shah Rukh Khan does that without even trying? The third teaser of Gauri Shinde's Dear Zindagi, has barely 20 seconds (if not lesser) of SRK and yet, his presence tells us a lot more about Alia, her character, and how the story is wound up.
How? Let us explain.
This teaser starts with Alia humming a song, and it forces both her and SRK to talk in a sing-son voice for the next couple of seconds. However, when we see snippets of her life outside of her time with SRK (who plays her life mentor/coach) she is seen to be a bit scattered and hot-tempered.
The cause of most of her anger is couples who are way too into each other, and you can see how that manifests itself in her relationships or exploration with Angad Bedi and Kunal Kapoor.
There seems to be a hesitation when dealing with these men, whereas when she is around Shah Rukh's character, she seems more relaxed and fun.
With tag lines like 'Love. Break up. Repeat' and 'The Dating Loop' we can deduce that Alia's character in this film seems to be successful but also seems to fall for the same type of man, which is something she cannot deal with. As a young woman, who ends up with man after man who gives her nothing (we've all been there), it will be interesting to see how this dynamic is played out on screen.
