    Imtiaz Ali's next movie 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma -- has now been set for release on August 4, thereby averting a box office clash with Akshay Kumar's 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', sources in the know of the development have said.

    After months of speculation, it was officially revealed by Shah Rukh, Anushka and Imtiaz through their social media handles late on Thursday night that the movie is titled 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' -- an obvious take on the Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.

    Interestingly, the title is also reminiscent of Imtiaz's superhit movie 'Jab We Met'.

    The romantic drama, widely shot in Prague, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Budapest, marks the third time that the two actors have been paired after 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.

    The first glimpses reflect a positive vibe with Shah Rukh and Anushka portrayed at their jovial best.

    Taking this positivity forward, Shah Rukh, who is also presenting the movie under his Red Chillies Entertainments banner, decided it would be best for the films to release a week apart, the sources close to the film told IANS.

    "Seeking your love," Imtiaz posted for fans on Facebook, alongside the film's first two looks which carry the tagline -- "What you seek is seeking you".

    As a date, August 4 will allow 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' to cash in on a long weekend given that Rakshabandhan falls on August 7 -- a Monday -- this year. There will also be an Independence Day holiday in the subsequent week.

    Additionally, both films will get their own audiences -- setting a precedent for the industry where clashes of big films has been resulting in divided and damaged revenues, the sources added.

    Shah Rukh's own movie 'Raees' clashed with 'Kaabil' earlier this year, but emerged the front runner.


    @Kalee, can you open a new section for this now that we have the title? :)

    Shah Rukh Khan: Sharing release date is equal to losing out on capacity
    ANI | Updated: Jun 10, 2017, 02.04 PM IST
    The big news doing the rounds in the tinsel down is the title of Imtiaz Ali's upcoming film, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, 'Jab Harry met Sejal,' and preponing its release date from August 11 to August 4.

    This move was taken to avoid the clash with Akshay Kumar's upcoming film 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,' which also releases on August 11.

    Speaking on the same to over the phone, the Badshah of Bollywood said, "When it is about sharing that space with anyone, you lose out on the capacity to nurture a film."

    "On all levels, these are capacity running films. Normally we release our films in four thousand theatres. When it is about sharing that space with anyone, you lose out on the capacity to nurture a film like 'Jab Harry met Sejal.' It is a funny unabashed love story, helmed by Imtiaz Ali, who has a special place in people's heart, as a director. The same goes for Anushka, myself, even the songs. It's a very happy film. These kinds of films do take on the capacity of the theatres available."

    Adding, "Whenever you start sharing date with some other film, due to unavoidable reason, we do lose out on that capacity. At the end we have always done really well, economically also, with the co release, but we do lose out on the capacity of the initial days. I always try not to come up with some other film, I request people the same."

    Further terming 'Jab Harry met Sejal' to be a long running film, the 51-year-old actor said that the movie will not only get four holidays (that includes Rakshabandhan), but also the Independence day in the row.

    "A couple of weeks back, we got a free date of August 4, which is an amazing weekend, followed by Rakshabandhan. We do get four days holiday. So we thought of shifting our film as another picture was coming. And because it is a long running film, I believe we can make some progress during the 15th August holiday. So we will be able to take advantage of both the weeks. And it will be an easy release for both the films," he said.

    When asked, whether this shift of date will be a 'game changer' in the showbiz, where clash between movie releases is a common happening, the 'Dilwale' actor promptly replies that there will still be movies releasing together at the Box Office.

    "It is not going to change as going by logic, there are that many theatres and that many weeks. There are almost 200 films, sharing about 50 weeks. So there will be some films coming together. That is unavoidable actually and I don't think that's something that will change. But one should avoid if there's a chance. I mean, I have done for our film and I can talk only about it," he explained.

    'Jab Harry met Sejal' sees SRK, portraying a tourist guide from Punjab while Anushka plays a Gujarati girl. Rest that follows is an unabashed love story.

    The romantic drama was widely shot in Prague, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Budapest and it marks the third flick of Shah Rukh and Anushka, together after 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.

    so happy finally a shahrukh khan film is getting a solo release i know there will be another release in week 2 but at least it will get a whole week. i actually like the first look i know from the title it may seem like its inspired/copied but im sure this is nothing but a coincidence at the least. it seems to be a fun light heartened love story with a good message. inside news is the songs will be good cant wait for the trailer. i'm really very of the types of movies shahrukh is now doin. 1 he is doing more and 2 the variety every film is completely different if u look at the last few. the only thing im worried about at the moment is there is an awfully long wait between this film and anand rais so im hoping he has a release in between. everyone has their opinions but i always look forward to shahrukhs movies as they are 99% the only ones i watch at the cinema.
    rollercoast and Rishima62 thank this.
