Well, now it is well known that Ranbir Kapoor was the brain behind the desi yet the quirky title of Imtiaz Ali’s film Jab Harry Met Sejal, starring Shah Rukh Khan andAnushka Sharma. The film’s title was recently revealed with the first poster.
As a pre-emptive step, SRK took to declare that in case Ranbir claims credit to the title, one must remember that he did not suggest the title because they didn’t want to give away the Rs 5000 award to Ranbir.
Yesterday, Ranbir who was present at the song launch of his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, was asked about the same. Responding to this, Ranbir said, “I want to tell everyone today that the title is mine, I had given it. But the sad part is not that Shah Rukh sir is not giving me credits but is that I had no idea about this reward so, Shah Rukh sir I am coming to Mannat to take my reward. Cash please! (laughs)”
He further recalled how he promptly suggested the title and what followed later. “But to be honest. I was shooting in Mehboob studio and there Imtiaz, SRK and Anushka were discussing the titles and I just suggested this and they laughed at me and cut to, their poster released with the title I suggested. It’s great to know that somewhere I am a small part of this movie. To be honest, this is one of the exciting actor-director duos for me, to see Imtiaz and SRK sir’s duo was a dream as a fan. As an audience. I am looking forward to it,” Ranbir recalled.
When asked if he would be having a cameo in the movie and Ranbir replied, “I wish I had, but I don’t have a cameo.”
Post this, Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to inform that she is really upset that her title did not make it to the finals. However, it is SRK’s response to the tweet which will make you go awe. Replying to Alia’s tweet, SRK assured her that her title has been reserved for their next film together. Sweet, isn’t it?
