Shah Rukh Khan is known as the king of romance and it has been a while since we saw the actor doing his classic love story film. Finally now SRK is back doing a romantic saga with Imtiaz Ali’s next opposite Anushka Sharma, titled Jab Harry Met Sejal.
When asked about how it feels working with Anushka again, the actor told a leading daily, “I have a strange relationship with Anushka. We are fond of each other. Anushka, Deepika (Padukone), these girls have done their first films with me, so there is a different kind of relationship with them. Sometimes you take a little while to do a film after you have done your first one, but then you get into a space like this. Imtiaz was clear that this (SRK-Anushka) was the cast. Aanand had been meeting Anushka for six-seven months and I said we have just done another film. She really suited the role. It is great fun working with her.”
Shah Rukh, who has been a part of several Yash Chopra movies added, “I am doing a classic love story after so many years. I don’t think anybody offered me one though people keep saying I do love stories. They call me the king of romance, but I haven’t romanced for a long time. Besides being happy and funny, it is tender and emotional as a love story should be. It’s about two people, there is music and the main differentiation lies in how Imtiaz writes a love story in Yash Chopra‘ish’ way.”
According to King Khan, film’s title was with them ever since they started shooting the film and the fact there were other titles also being considered for the film including The Ring, Rehnuma and Raula. Jab Harry Met Sejal is known to be a modern day, happy go-lucky love story with its release on August 4, 2017.
