Anushka Sharma and SRK starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal to hit theaters on Aug 4

Jab Harry met Sejal trailer to release with Salman Khan;s Tubelight. With a title borrowed from both the classic 1989 rom-com When Harry Met Sally and his own 2007 hit Jab We Met, Imtiaz Ali is back with his much anticipated movie starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma – Jab Harry Met Sejal. The movie was put out for a first look today and is expected to clash with Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha on August 4. Both the title and the first poster were tweeted out from Shah Rukh and Anushka’s twitter handle, in the the form of two separate tweets, which when put together, made for the complete title. The title obviously reminded twitterati of the blockbuster Jab We Met, and it is being suspected that the themes may be quite similar. However SRK has rubbished the reports of the film being similar to any of the two films it seems to be inspired from. But the film seems to be a welcome drift from Ali’s last two ventures of artistic angst and vent up frustrations in Rockstar and Tamasha, and more on the lines of his earlier – unabashed fun and love filled flicks – Jab We Met and Love AajKal.

The story is supposed to be of a Punjabi Taxi Driver Harry played by Shahrukh meeting a Gujrati girl Sejal played by Anushka in the beauteous Europe. The film is expected to have the Imtiaz Ali effect of breathtaking landscapes and the ever romancing duo, which is a given as the movie has the successful jodi of King Khan and Anushka who are up for a pairing after three successful earlier ventures in form of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (which was also Anushka’s debut), Jab Tak Hai Jaan and (a brief appearance in) Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Shah Rukh and Anushka are also posting incredibly cute and insightful posts on Twitter and Instagram promoting the film since yesterday.

Taran Adarsh however a short while ago confirmed the reports that the film shall have its trailer launched with Kabir Khan directed Salman Khan starrer Tubelight which shall be releasing in theaters by the end of June on the much famed Eid weekend.

Now the fans can have best of both worlds – the excitement of an upcoming Shah Rukh Khan release with the entertainment of a Sallu Bhai flick – so be ready to check the theaters out the last weekend of June.
