This week sees the release of Shah Rukh Khan–Alia Bhatt starrer Dear Zindagi. Those who have seen the promos of Dear Zindagi simply can’t stop raving about the onscreen chemistry between Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt in the film.
What is strange is that the ‘ageless romantic’ Shah Rukh Khan had featured as Alia Bhatt’s elder sister Pooja Bhatt’s hero in Chaahat, which was made in 1996. Needless to say that, during the shooting of Chaahat, little Alia Bhatt had a huge crush on her sister Pooja Bhatt’s onscreen hero Shah Rukh Khan.
Pooja Bhatt recently took to the social media and shared photograph of herself and Alia Bhatt which was clicked during the Jaipur schedule of Chaahat. Pooja Bhatt captioned the photograph as “This picture of Alia & me was taken on the outdoor of #Chaahat in Jaipur at the end of a gruelling work day where both Shahrukh & me were knackered. Amazing that this robust baby has grown into the fine young woman she is and has a film coming out tomorrow where she is now opposite Shahrukh! How time flies! #nostalgia #dearzindagi #AliaBhatt #ShahrukhKhan #family #Zindagi”.
