Shahrukh-Anushka’s film titled ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’; release preponed

Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s upcoming romantic drama directed by Imtiaz Ali has finally got an official title. The movie that was shot under the working title ‘The Ring’, has been titled ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.

Imtiaz announced the title by unveiling two posters of the movie, which divided the title into two halves. The first poster read, ‘Jab Harry’, while second poster read ‘Met Sejal’. The posters come with the tagline ‘What you seek is seeking you!’. Both the posters feature both Anushka and Shah Rukh in a jovial mood.

The ‘Tamasha’ director took to Instagram on Thursday night and shared the posters with the captions, ‘seeking your love...’ and a smiley. Anushka and Shah Rukh also tweeted each other’s character-name posters. While Anushka tweeted, “What you seek... @iamsrk @RedChilliesEnt,” with the ‘Jab Harry’ poster, King Khan shared the ‘Met Sejal’ poster writing, “ seeking you! @AnushkaSharma @RedChilliesEnt.”

The posters give out the travelogue theme of the movie with a vague image of the Europe’s map in the background. The bottom right corner of both the posters also has an image of a ring – The Ring.

According to reports, Shah Rukh plays a tour guide, while Anushka plays a tourist. The film has been extensively shot in picturesque European locations, including Prague, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Budapest, besides in Punjab and Mumbai.

Previously, there were reports about the movie being titled ‘Rahnuma’ with the tagline ‘Love guides you home’, then recently, rumours surfaced that a new title ‘Raula’, meaning ‘noise’ in Punjabi, has been chosen, and Shah Rukh had even joked about it. But now, the speculations surrounding the title has been put to rest.

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, was previously slated to hit screens on August 11, but the date has been preponed to August 4, to cash in on the extended weekend owing to Rakshabandhan.
