Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to release on 4th August. But turns out that this wasn’t the film Imtiaz Ali had approached Shahrukh Khan for. Here’s what King Khan has to say about how the film worked out:
“I wanted to work with Imtiaz. He had narrated another story to me, which was a bit dark. I feel he is a very bright person and since he is younger than me, I can sound patronising too but I wanted him to make a happy film. So I asked him, ‘do you have something else?’ And, he told me that he has a love story. He narrated the first 20 minutes of the film and I instantly liked it since his love story is not like the love stories that I have done. I have also not done a love story for a long time now. Also, the language of Imtiaz’s love stories is very different, which I like a lot. It’s very interesting, subtle, quiet, not very underlined but extremely deep and somehow, ghar bana leti hai dil mein.”
This film, or any other film, it’s always a treat to watch SRK perform!
