Alia Bhatt like many other young girls is a huge ShahRukh Khan fan and when she finally got a chance to work with him, she was elated. Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt have come together for the first time to work for the film Dear Zindagi. Alia was offered Dear Zindagi by Gauri Shinde who has been widely acclaimed for her movie English Vinglish. Karan Johar introduced Alia to Gauri Shinde and when she came to know that SRK was on board too, she was delighted! Alia said, "I was just out of my gym and Karan called to ask if I could drop by at Shah Rukh’s house; he and Gauri were already sitting there. I first said ‘No, I can’t come’, and then I explained to him that ‘My hair was all wet’. Suddenly I heard SRK ‘s voice in the background saying, “Even my hair is all wet’ (laughs). It was such a cool experience."
