Watching Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali collaborate for a film had always been a cinema lover’s dream.
The Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, is all set to make his way back to the silver screen in Imtiaz Ali’s next movie. Also starring Anushka Sharma, the film is touted to be a romantic travel splendour.
While there were several rumoured titles for the film, which had allegedly been mused over thrice — from The Ring to Rehnuma and then Raula. After a lot of guessing game on social media, its title was finally revealed on June 9 along with the poster, and changed to Jab Harry Met Sejal!
No sooner did the film’s poster drop on social media networking sites, people started trolling the name with one even saying that it could win the award for the “worst movie title of the year”.Fans hate the fact that the title looks inspired from Harry Met Sally and Jab We Met. To make it worse, some fans even pointed out the striking resemblance of the film’s poster to the song of Imtiaz Ali’s other film Tamasha’s Matargasthi.
With all the jokes and memes that followed, a girl named Sejal Badala tweeted out to Shah Rukh saying,
“@iamsrk thanks for turning me into a meme.”— Sejal Badala (@badala_sejal)
But, King Khan was not one bit taken aback. Instead, he left everyone baffled with his witty response to her. It is no surprise that the King Khan has a way with words and the 51-year-old’s tweet proved it yet again.
I am so sorry Sejal Badala. Hope u like my next film title better..it’s called “Badala oops Badle ki Aag” https://t.co/7cX23EaSH8
