Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, co-stars of Dear Zindagi, spent part of Thursday responding to tweets from colleagues who have watched their film (Bollywood gets a preview in advance, of course). Dear Zindagi is already a hit with celebrities. Those who tweeted included Sushant Singh Rajput, Dia Mirza and Aditi Rao Hydari. Shah Rukh Khan, 51, plays life coach Jehangir or Jug to Alia Bhatt, 23, helping her character Kaira navigate boyfriend trouble. The verdict on Twitter: every one wants to go to therapy in the hope of finding their very own Jehangir. But there's only one Shah Rukh Khan, remember? Dear Zindagi, why so cruel?
Sridevi, who was the star of Dear Zindagi director Gauri Shinde's first film English Vinglish, said that Alia is like 'magic onscreen:'
 
 
 
"Call me any time," SRK told Dia Mirza. "Was trying to call," he responded to Sushant Singh Rajput.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Shabana Azmi tweeted on behalf of her husband Javed Akhtar. Alia, in her answering tweet, urged her 'Khaala' to watch Dear Zindagi, saying she'd "love, love to hear (her) thoughts."
 
A special screening of Dear Zindagi was held in Mumbai on Wednesday night. Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt were spotted being driven to the theatre. Their guests included Sridevi and her daughter Jhanvi Kapoor. A Sridevi song, Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le from Sadma, has been used in this film.
