Ranbir: I suggested title ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ for Imtiaz Ali, SRK-Anushka’s upcoming flick
Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming movie, which starring SRK-Anushka has titled ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, but Ranbir claimed that he has suggested this title.
On June 9, Ranbir said, “When I suggested that the film should be named ‘When Harry Met Sejal’ everyone laughed it off.”
The first look of the movie was released on Friday, after which Shah Rukh Khan tweeted ,saying, “Just in case Ranbir Kapoor ever claims it… the title Jab Harry met Sejal was never ever suggested by him! So he doesn’t win the Rs 5,000 reward.”
SRK was referring to the reward of Rs 5,000 given by the film’s team to anyone who could come up with the perfect title.
When asked about SRK’s tweet, Ranbir joked, “It’s my title, I gave the title for the film… the sad part is not that Shah Rukh sir is not giving me credit but that I was not aware of the reward. Shah Rukh sir I am coming to Mannat (Shah Rukh s bungalow)..cash please.”
The actor said they discussed the title of the movie while they both were shooting for their respective films at Mehboob Studio.
“We were discussing the title and I suggested ‘When Harry Met Sejal’… everyone laughed at it and said it’s a ‘bakwas’ title. Cut to today… the poster of the film is out with the title that I gave. I am happy that I am a small part of this film.”
Kapoor said, I am looking forward to the movie, to be honest it’s by far the most exciting actor-director duo, it has Pritam’s music and Anushka Sharma too is part of the film.”
When asked how he feels when actors like Aamir Khan, Paresh Rawal praise his work, Ranbir said, “Aamir Khan, Paresh Rawal are stalwarts of this industry and I have learned acting by just observing them and seeing their films. I hope I don’t let them down. Aamir Khan has been sweet and supportive in my entire career.”
Ranbir said when ‘Bombay Velvet’ did not do well, Aamir reached out to him.
“He came to my house straight and was with me the entire day and spoke to me about the film industry, the hits, and flops. His love for me is very deep. I appreciate that and if they like my work it feels great. I hope I can live up to the expectations of Aamir sir.”
