A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature
Gauri Khan, under her production banner Red Chillies Entertainment, is back with Shah Rukh Khan as Harry and Anushka Sharma as Sejal in an another rom-com flick by Imtiaz Ali--Jab Harry Met Sejal. Sadly, it shares no similarity with the widely successful Rob Reiner's classic 'When Harry Met Sally'. The idea of the film originated from a request from the director's mother, recalls Imtiaz, who had asked her Son to make a movie centered around travelling, so that she can accompany him to shoot and see new places, hence the idea of a tour guide brushed Imtiaz's mind, which had the potential of not just pleasing her mother, but also had elasticity to accommodate love and relationships, which is at the center of Imtiaz's imaginative universe.
Anushka Sharma was excited and thrilled to get underneath the skin of a character she had never attempted before. Under the careful, meticulous direction of Imtiaz and relaxed, supportive demeanour of Shah Rukh, Anushka found immense confidence to successfully bring out a 'person' from the character of Sejal. Imtiaz Ali pictured the character of Sejal from his many Gujju friends of Mumbai. Anushka is an ardent fan of Imtiaz Ali's work, the affair started with Jab We Met when she saw it in Bikaner. The most notable thing for her in Imtiaz's work is his sharp understanding of relationships which translates into his films, which the audience find naturally relatable, and you start 'loving his films.'
Imtiaz Ali stressed on his philosophy that 'you don't know why you're doing what you do, you just do it.' As we have seen throughout his filmography, the approach of Imtiaz Ali is not all about observations and insights of our everyday lives, it is just as organic and intuitive as the love affairs he so delicately handles. Travel is a recurring element in his films, which he thinks is an integral part of the creative process as well as of a relationship. For him, the romantic themes just seeps in, it's not 'what you start with.' Imtiaz also noted that Jab Harry Met Sejal is going to much different from Tamasha, so movie-goers must expect another fresh offering from currently one of the leading young directors of the big screen.
