Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali is to feature Shah Rukh Khan in one of his movies for the first time, in the highly anticipated Jab Harry Met Sejal, alongside Anushka Sharma.
On working with SRK, Ali said: “He is the most gracious, funny, passionate person, filmmaker friend that one can hope for. It’s his kindness that the film has turned out so well. I’m happy that I got a chance to work with The Shah Rukh Khan. I hope I’ve been able to justify the huge talent and resource that the man is.”
Recently, Khan compared Ali to Yash Chopra, saying that his flair for writing love stories reminds him of the late filmmaker.
Ali commented: “To be compared to Mr. Yash Chopra is both a matter of unbelievable pride and a little embarrassment and humiliation because in my own eyes I stand nowhere close to him…Just my name taken in the same sentence as Yash Chopra will make my family very proud.”
Jab Harry Met Sejal is set to hit the cinemas on 4th August 2017.
