Shah Rukh Khan finally reacts to the claims of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ being a Hindi remake of American romantic comedy from the 80’s When Harry Met Sally.
After a long wait, filmmaker Imtiaz Ali announced the final title of his next starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. The film is called Jab Harry Met Sejal. However, fans are highly disappointed with the title, as it sounds similar to two movies – Jab We Met and When Harry Met Sally. However, many even went on to claim that that film is probably a Hindi remake of American romantic comedy from the 80’s When Harry Met Sally.
However, dismissing all such rumours, SRK told ANI that there is no similarity between the two films apart from their titles. He said, “The films have no similarity, except for the fact that we can hope our movie can also be one of that kind of unabashed classic love stories. When Harry Met Sally is one of the greatest love stories ever made in the history of world cinema… There’s nothing about the stories, which is similar. It is quite original, a fun space love story by Imtiaz Ali. But it is a takeoff from there (When Harry Met Sally) as that movie is a classic. It is a way to attribute.”
The comparison between both the films started right after the self-proclaimed critic KRK tweeted, “So actually copycat Imtiyaz Ali has copied his film #JabHarryMetSejal from this film. Hai Ho! Lol”

However, SRK’s bang on reaction to people’s assumption has shut everyone’s mouth now. We hope, memes and trolls stop after this!
Talking about the film, the story revolves around a tourist guide, Harinder Singh Nehra aka Harry played by SRK, while Anushka plays a Gujarati girl, Sejal Parikh. The film releases on August 4, 2017.
