From Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt to Ranbir Kapoor, everyone gave suggestions for Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming film. Several reports stated that apparently the film was supposed to be titled The Ring and later the makers sealed the name Rehnumn. However, no one was happy with the titles.Finally, the makers chose Ranbir Kapoor’s suggested name and he just couldn’t contain his happiness when the title ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ made it to the posters.
When the name was officially announced, Ranbir said in an event that he was the one who suggested this title. “I suggested the title ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ to Shah Rukh Sir and Imtiaz Ali. But the sad part is that I had no idea about the reward, so Shah Rukh Sir, I am coming to Mannat (SRK’s residence), keep the Rs 5000 ready in cash!” he said. “To be honest I was shooting at Mehboob Studio, where Shah Rukh Sir, Imtiaz Ali and Anushka were also shooting. We all were sitting in a van together and discussing various options for the title of the film, and I suggested this title Jab Harry Met Sejal, everybody laughed at me for the ‘bakwas’ title I had suggested. Today they have used my title, and I am very happy that I could be a small part of this film. It is by far the most exciting actor-director duo, Shah Rukh Sir and Imtiaz Ali is my favourite duo as a fan and as an audience. Pritam is in this film, Anushka is in this film, and I am happy even I am a part of this film,” RK added.

However, now finally King Khan has finally settled his debt with Ranbir Kapoor. ‘Hisaab barabar’, as he called it and paid him Rs 5000 ‘in cash’ as RK demanded.SRK took to Twitter and shared a photo handing cash to Ranbir. He tweeted “Jagga Jasoos we are quits now!!! Hisaab barabar (It’s even now). Give @karanjohar his share for the ‘Jab’ part in JHMS please.”

Well, the fact that Karan Johar has his part in the share too comes as a complete surprise. Karan being his true self, jumped into the conversation and humoursly replied “Yes am waiting !! Ranbir owes me 1,250 rupees!”

We got to agree that this banter between the three was indeed cool. The film is set to release on August 4 and we look forward to watching it.
