Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has surprised her fans along with Imtiaz Ali by revealing the first look of Jab Harry Met Sejal on the director's birthday. In the picture, the superstar Shah Rukh Khan is dressed as a Sardar and Anushka can be spotted in a Punjabi Patiala suit in the picture on Twitter.
Wishing Imtiaz, Anushka wrote, “Happy happy to Imtiaz sir ji !! Thank you for making Anushka meet Sejal.”
This is the third time that SRK and Anushka are working together, but the first time that the talented director, Imtiaz will be directing the duo. We have earlier seen SRK and Anushka together in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
In an innovative move, the actor-director duo will present "mini trails", that is, a series of 30-second-long clips from the movie, in the run-up to the film's release on August 4.
Ali, who came up with the idea of "mini trails", wants to showcase the idea of the film to the masses that will give them an insight into the world of lead characters Harry and Sejal, played by Shah Rukh and Anushka Sharma respectively. The first of these "mini trails" will be unveiled on June 19, which will serve as a build-up to the songs of the film and help communicate the essence of the love story.
These snippets will also enable the viewers to understand the dreams and complexities of the protagonists. Talking about this idea, Shah Rukh said in a statement, "These trails will serve as moments from their journey which gradually lead to the bigger story that would unfold in the theatres. Imtiaz has a special way of writing and shooting his scenes.
"Even the most simple of scenes have an underlying emotion or a subtext within them. These 'mini trails' will highlight moments from our film, which Imtiaz so lovingly weaves into his tales. The thought behind these trails is to draw the audience closer to Harry and Sejal."
The shooting of Jab Harry Met Sejal took place in Europe and Punjab and the film is all set to hit theatres in August.
