Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t carry the baggage of being a star, says Dear Zindagi director Gauri Shinde

The first day of the shoot was like Oh My God both for me and Alia Bhatt. If he had anything to do (add or remove or change to the story) he would have done it early at the basic stage. We agreed on almost everything. When Gauri narrated the story of Dear Zindagi to the My Name Is Khan star he liked the idea and agreed to come on
board. We worked as a team and not thinking he is a super star.”

Gauri Shinde directorial Dear Zindagi stars Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan in the lead roles. The first day went and it was stress-free,” she said. “We did meetings and readings together before we started shooting. Ask her if it was an immediate yes from SRK, she said, “Yes it was fortunately and luckily.” After getting Shah Rukh on board for the film Gauri did not alter the story or plot line of this film. “But because of the person he is, he doesn’t come there with the baggage of being a star but he comes as an actor and
puts in his best and helps all of us. “He (Shah Rukh) is a director’s dream. He is so supportive. It strikes you this is Shah Rukh Khan and you become aware of his personality,” Gauri said.
