Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal received its name after a prolonged period of time. After working under the name of The Ring and Rehnuma, people were quite startled that the name Jab Harry Met Sejal was chosen. As we know Ranbir Kapoor was the potter head behind the name, but people quickly started guessing that it is an amalgamation of Hollywood’s When Harry Met Sally and Imtiaz’ Jab We Met.
But Shah Rukh took charge to clear the air of rumors surrounding his movie. He said “Ranbir had suggested When Harry Met Sejal. And I think Karan (Johar) said, ‘make it, Jab Harry Met Sejal’ because maybe it’s Imtiaz’s own film. But honestly, neither of those films are related to this one. Ours is a beautiful, comic and slice-of-life kind of a journey film. People perceive that we mixed the names of two films but it’s nothing like that. Maybe, Ranbir’s thought came from When Harry Met Sally as everyone knows about that film.”
Now being clear that the film has nothing to do with either of the above, Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to release on August 4. It will be the third time that Shah Rukh will romance Anushka after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
