Dear Zindagi is winning hearts and how! Starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, while fans were already excited to see this debut pairing on the big screen. Critics too seem to be highly impressed with the film right from it's simplistic narration to the flawless performances delivered by Alia and SRK. In fact, that explains why despite having a limited in release in just 1100 screens across India, Dear Zindagi is performing phenomenally well at the box office for early estimates suggest the film has grossed an approx of Rs 10 crore on the opening day. Yes! Probably, the word of mouth publicity is working wonders for DZ considering this is not even a regular Shah Rukh film which releases on a grand scale and gets sold entirely on his name.

That reminds us how trade Expert Amul Vikas Mohan, Editor Super Cinema had well in advance predicted the opening day collections of Dear Zindagi as he had said, "I think it will open big. Expectations are high since it’s a Shah Rukh Khan film. Of course, we all know he isn’t probably there in it for more than 30 minutes. But I am sure people will still want to see him. It’s been awhile since his last movie Fan released. Also I think there is an abundance of cuteness with Alia and Shah Rukh in it. That’s going to be a big hit for the people in metros. Ideally, it should open anywhere around Rs 11 crore. If the opening day is at 11 or 12 crore and continues to carry good buzz, it should do around 35 crore over the weekend.” He also informed that the film is made at a budget of not more than 60-65 cr and if that’s the case, 35 cr is a good collection over the weekend."
