There were rumors that Pakistani actor Ali Zafar would be replaced in Dear Zindagi, however, actor Alia Bhatt confirmed that it is rubbish.
"Nobody has been replaced and the film is releasing as it is," said Alia to a query about Ali's replacement while she was attending the cover launch of magazine Absolute Elyx Filmfare Glamour and Style here on Monday.
Alia has also said that she loves her character in the film."Dear Zindegi is the closest to my character, I can relate to the character so much. Though I will not say that is exactly who I am but it is the same thing that happen when in a irritating relationship or fighting with my mother. I thing, everyone some way or the other can relate to the character."
