Weird but true that Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt-starrer Dear Zindagi has been given Parental Guidance certificate by the British censor board. This means the board feels that some material/content in the film may not be suitable for children. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the news. He wrote, “DearZindagi certified PG by British censors on 21 Nov 2016. Approved run time: 149 min 53 sec (2 hours, 29 minutes, 53 seconds).”
On contrary, in India, the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has cleared Gauri Shinde’s film with no cuts. In fact, the film, which is on its way to the theatres, has been granted a UA certificate. According to media reports, the film has been passed by CBFC with no verbal or visual cut. DNA quoted censor board members as saying that it would be a crime to cut even a single scene from Dear Zindagi. They have also commended Shah Rukh Khan, saying least censorial intervention is required in his movies.
The actors have been promoting their film with full force. While the Udta Punjab actor has left no stone unturned to keep up the buzz around her film, Shah Rukh Khan somehow was seen being choosy about promotions of the film. The 23-year-old plays the character of a playful girl who loves her life while the 51-year-old plays a psychologist in the film. Apart from SRK and Alia, the film also stars Kunal Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Angad Bedi and Alia Zafar.
