REVEALED: Alia Bhatt’s character in Dear Zindagi is based on Gauri Shinde

Alia Bhatt

Dear Zindagi, Gauri Shinde’s beautifully crafted tale of splintered heart on the mend, has a twist in the tale. Alia Bhatt’s character has been styled after the director Gauri Shinde. Alia’s clothes, hair mannerisms were all modelled on her director.

Revealing this for the first time Alia says, “Actually it was Balki (director Gauri Shinde’s husband) who kept pointing out how much like Gauri I looked. Somewhere we had consciously or subconsciously borrowed a lot from Gauri’s wardrobe and mannerisms.”

This is the first film Alia Bhatt has done with a female director. “And I guess somewhere I was observing her and imbibing her personality. Even the clothes I wear are what Gauri wears. They were all designed by Gauri and Aki Narula and were inspired by what Gauri wears. It’s what you’d expect a female technician to wear on the sets on Bollywood.”
