Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan will be seen in a cameo in Gauri Shinde’s directorial venture ‘Dear Zindagi’ and the actor feels lucky to be a part of the movie. The movie puts forth many sensitive and social issues which will show the norms of a patriarchal and biased society in today’s world thereby the film will surely leave a positive impact on men because it also talks about gender biasness.
During a press conference actor Shah Rukh Khan went on to say that: “I will specifically say that we live in a man’s world unfortunately. We talk about feminism and women empowerment. The beauty of this film is that without being preachy, a bunch of confident women have made this film which says that whatever, wherever, with whom ever a woman does anything that is correct without being judgmental on the same. So I feel this movie will leave an impression on men too.”
The 51-year old actor, who is known to take up all kinds of roles in his 25 years of glorious career in the industry and even then Shahrukh feels that this is the most challenging one which he has never come across in his 25 years journey.
Shahrukh further added justifying his statement: “I am in an extended cameo in the movie. But even then, I feel I have never done such a role ever in my life. So I take this opportunity to thank both of them (Gauri Shinde and Alia Bhatt) for allowing me to be a part of this film. “For me, being father to a 17-year old girl and otherwise being a person whose life and profession has been completely dependent on women, is the reason I am part of this film.”
The movie stars Alia Bhatt in the lead role and also features Ali Zafar, Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Ira Dubey and hence is scheduled to hit the theatres on November 25, 2017.
