Mumbai: Actor Ranbir Kapoor has revealed that he was the one who suggested the title of Imtiaz Ali’s new movie, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.
Ranbir on Friday said when he suggested that the film should be named “When Harry Met Sejal”, everyone laughed it off.
The first look of the movie was released after which Shah Rukh Khan tweeted saying, “Just in case Ranbir Kapoor ever claims it, the title Jab Harry met Sejal was never ever suggested by him! So he doesn’t win the Rs 5,000 reward.”
SRK was referring to the reward of Rs 5,000 given by the film’s team to anyone who could come up with the perfect title.
When asked about SRK’s tweet, Ranbir joked, “It’s my title, I gave the title for the film… the sad part is not that Shah Rukh sir is not giving me credit but that I was not aware about the reward. Shah Rukh sir I am coming to Mannat (Shah Rukh s bungalow), cash please.”
The actor said they discussed the title of the movie while they both were shooting for their respective films at Mehboob Studio.
“We were discussing about the title and I suggested ‘When Harry Met Sejal’… everyone laughed at it and said it’s a ‘bakwas’ title. Cut to today… the poster of the film is out with the title that I gave. I am happy that I am a small part of this film.”
The “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” actor is excited about the Imtiaz Ali-directed film. “To be honest it’s by far the most exciting actor-director duo, it has Pritam’s music and Anushka Sharma too is part of the film. I am looking forward to it.”
There were reports that Ranbir will have a cameo appearance in this film but he rubbished this news. “I wish I had but no,” he said.
Ranbir said when ‘Bombay Velvet’ did not do well, Aamir reached out to him.
Ranbir is currently promoting “Jagga” Jasoos”. Also starring Katrina Kaif, the Anurag Basu-directed film is due for release on July 14.
