ae zindagi gale laga le, dear zindagi, dear zindagi new song, ae zindagi dear zindagi, dear zindagi album, alia bhatt, shah rukh khan, alia bhatt shah rukh, kaira jehangir, indian express news, indian express, entertainment news Dear Zindagi lead actors Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt and director Gauri Shinde are in Delhi for Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le song launch.

Have you ever fallen in love with someone out of respect? Well, if yes then this song is going to touch those unattended strings of your heart, which reverberate the feeling of being hurt, anger and that unrequited love. Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Dear Zindagi has a lot of love angles to it but not between the two leading stars. Alia, who plays the character of Kaira, is apparently seeking advice about life from SRK, who plays the character of a psychologist in the film.

Does Alia eventually falls for SRK? At least that is what we can guess through the new song – Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le, which released today. In the song, we see Kaira (Alia) sharing a cute relationship with Jehangir (Shah Rukh Khan). We see her trying to steal glances, click secret and candid pictures of ‘Jug’ and being immersed in Shah Rukh’s life lessons, which only happen when you are too touched by the person you are with. The two seem to share many happy and sad moments, just like best friends. But as the video comes to an end, we also see Alia’s character getting hurt – making us equally sad.

The chirpy, loving Kaira is trying to hold herself back from crying, as Jug (as she calls Jehangir) seems to have bid her a goodbye. Another touching factor about the song is that it is a revamped version of Kamal Hassan and Sridevi-starrer Sadma, sung by legendary Suresh Wadekar. But the revamped version in the voice of the very talented and soulful singer Arijit Singh is no less melodious.

The album of Dear Zindagi has songs for every kind of soul. From Love You Zindagi to Ae Zindagi, every song has the taker. The film stars Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Ali Zafar in pivotal roles. Directed by Gauri Shinde, the film will release on November 25.
