Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali worked together for the first time in their upcoming Jab Harry Met Sejal, and the former is thoroughly impressed with the latter. While hitting back on the rumors surrounding the name of the film Shah Rukh’s movie is already a talk of the town. While talking to Mumbai Mirror Shah Rukh said, “My little girl (Suhana) had shown me parts of Jab We Met and I had enjoyed it. But I had watched Socha Na Tha featuring Abhay Deol, which had released when Imtiaz was not well-known and I had loved it a lot more! Rockstar was brilliant but it didn’t do too well at the box-office because Imtiaz sometimes makes his love stories too intense. Not this time though. We’ve made sure it’s all about love and happiness.”
With that said, Shah Rukh became a critic to Imtiaz and further complimented him saying, “Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me that I’m called the King of Romance but I’ve not done a romance since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, since they’ve all been “just another love story”. But doing an unabashed love story in my age depends entirely on the writing. Imtiaz’s story is wonderfully penned, proving that he’s a modern-day Yash Chopra. Imtiaz believes in love… classic, unconditional love. He always shoots his films abroad, and loves food.”
Well well well, Imtiaz we guess couldn’t ask for more.
