He has been the King of Romance, we call him the King of Bollywood, we also call him King Khan or Badshah Khan but we have never called him CHEAP! This time round, It’s Shahrukh Khan who is speaking out loud and telling us that he is indeed cheap. All this for Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal‘. Prior to this Shahrukh has refused to kiss on screen, even the not-so-bold love making scene in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna left his million followers aghast. But when you see Shahrukh Khan saying dialogues like ‘Ladkiyon Ke mamle main character sahi nahi hai mera‘ makes you sit up and think that finally, the actor is diverting from his romantic hero image. Finally, Shahrukh isn’t playing safe. Finally, Imtiaz Ali might just give us an SRK we all will fall in love with all over again.
In a series of mini-trailers that are being released of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have made it clear that this film is far from a mushy romantic film. On the contrary, it dives into the popular funda of ‘love’ which exist today.
Even if Shahrukh Khan is taking the Salman way of labeling himself as ‘Character Dheela’, in this case, ‘Character Kharab’ we find his appeal to Anushka very enduring. On the other hand, Anushka Sharma seemed to have nailed the Gujarati accent and she too as Sejal comes across as a no-hold-bares kind of a girl. Otherwise, who will have an indemnity bond in case one ends up having sexual intercourse?
Apart from the mini-trailers, Shahrukh Khan has also released a video message for all the Sejal’s of the world as they get a chance to meet Harry AKA Shahrukh in person. Even before this can happen, a particular Sejal did put up a complaint with SRK for ruining her name and Khan’s response was epic!
