Director: Gauri Shinde
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Alia Bhat
Director Gauri Shinde always brings unspoken but obvious real life situations to the screen.
Through Dear Zindagi, she explores the taboo topic of mental health and illnesses. Kaira (Alia) is an ambitious and upcoming cinematographer. But the young girl has her own share of issues that see her sink into depression. Dr Jug (SRK) is the therapist who helps bring her back to normal again. It’s a beautifully made film and is definitely worth a watch.
