Few days back superstar Shah Rukh Khan disappointed his fans when he revealed that his role in ‘Dear Zindagi’ is an extended cameo. After his statement, rumours about his role’s length started doing rounds. Now, the director has put all the rumours to rest saying that the minimum length of SRK’s character would be of an hour in the flick.
Gauri Shinde stated that both the characters played by Shah Rukh and Alia were principal characters and other characters were supporting them. The film was all about Kaira and Jehangir. Thus, it only revolved around King Khan and Alia.
Previously, speculations were rife that SRK’s appearance on the silver screen will be of mere 30 minutes. Talking about the same, the ‘English Vinglish’ director said that though the film tells the story of Alia's character but SRK’s appearance would be of at least an hour. She further stated that she didn’t understand the reason of calling his role a special cameo or a guest appearance.
‘Dear Zindagi’ hits the screens today. Yesterday, celebrities who caught the screening of the flick were all praises of Alia’s sheer anguish. Now, the fate of the flick is in audience’s hands. Only the coming time will tell, if this flick proves to be a milestone in Alia’s career.
