Loved by a large chunk of viewers and lauded by an equal number of critics, Dear Zindagi left a deep impression on almost everyone who watched it. Directed by Gauri Shinde, the film touched the issue of mental illness and schooled many about it. At the same time, it also broke stereotypes about it. Undoubtedly, the movie was loved by all and the deleted scenes of the film are getting the same reception.
The makers have been releasing deleted scenes of the film and it tells how differently the film would have shaped up. The newest clip released gives an insight about how different the ending of the movie would have been.
This scene shows how Alia Bhatt’s character Kaira is at peace in her life. We know that Dr Jehangir Khan, played by Shah Rukh Khan, had an important role to play in it. Dr Jug taught Kiara how to fall in love with herself, appreciate all that life has given her and forgive those who hurt her.
How beautifully Kaira imbibed the forgiveness lesson in her life, has been shown in this video. She runs into Raghuvendra (Kunal Kapoor) and what happens next tells a lot about the peaceful phase she is in.
The deleted scenes of Dear Zindagi, that are getting the admiration of viewers have pleased Gauri Shinde. In a tweet, she expressed this feeling.

Earlier Gauri had revealed why she was forced to run scissors over the film. She said:
We were under pressure to keep the film’s running-time to under 2.30 hours. This is the logic that goes into film exhibition these days. The film’s duration has to be checked so that there can be more shows and more sale of popcorn and samosa during interval
Well, as viewers we really hope the scenes were a part of the movie.
