No wonder the presence of superstar Shahrukh Khan has helped the film get excellent numbers in the overseas market. And despite the ongoing cash crunch because of demonetization, the film directed by Gauri Shinde has made superb growth on the weekends.
Dear Zindagi traces the journey of Alia Bhatt's character Kaira who goes through childhood trauma, love and heartbreak in her life. Shahrukh Khan plays the role of a therapist in the movie who helps her to see things with a new perspective.
