Alia Bhatt's most awaited film of the year Dear Zindagi is all set to hit the screens tomorrow. The movie is based on the complexities in her life and how a life coach Shahrukh Khan helps her to deal with her issues.
It has been a while since a film opened well at the Box Office. The demonetization drive has played a major role in the poor collections of some recent films. But things might change with this Alia & SRK starrer.
According to trade experts, Dear Zindagi will collect around Rs 8-10 Crores on its opening day. Since it has an extended cameo of Shahrukh Khan, the movie is expected to bring good numbers from the overseas market also as he has a lot of fan following there. The weekend collections can increase if the movie gets positive reviews and good word of mouth publicity, which is expected from a Gauri Shinde film.

Dear Zindagi Is A Total Winner
Talking about the film, trade expert Akshaye Rathi told Bollywood Life, "It entirely depends on the merit of the film's content. But going by what we have seen so far, it looks like a total winner.''
Feel Good Factor
''When you pay Rs 300 to go watch a movie, you don't want to come out depressed. You want to come out feeling good and this film looks like one which will make you come out with a smile on your face.''
Dear Zindagi Will Make You Smile
''Look at all those big hits - Bajrangi Bhaijaan, P.K. or 3 Idiots, they take you though an emotional roller coaster ride - makes you smile, cry, laugh but eventually you come out with a smile and this film (Dear Zindagi) looks like one too.''
It Can Be Alia's Biggest Hit So Far
''I don't know if it can be a Rs 200 crore film, but it certainly has the potential to become Alia Bhatt"s biggest hit so far. If the promos are to go by and the director's track record with English Vinglish is something to go by, then Dear Zindagi will be one of the most loved films of 2016."
In 2012, Gauri Shinde, ad film maker-turned-director, swept the Indian audience off their feet with her Bollywood debut English Vinglish, which was also a comeback film for Sridevi and one of the best films of her acting career.
Four years later, Gauri is back with her second film, Dear Zindagi. Would she be successful to win the hearts this time also? Well, that you will get to know tomorrow (25 November).
So, keep watching this space for the live review and the box office reports of Shahrukh & Alia's Dear Zindagi.
