Highlights

  1. Ranbir Kapoor has to give Karan Johar's share too
  2. Earlier, SRK said Ranbir did not suggest the film's title
  3. Hisaab barabar, tweeted Shah Rukh Khan
So, Ranbir Kapoor finally claimed the Rs 5,000 prize money he said he deserves for the title of Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming Jab Harry Met Sejal. Shah Rukh met Ranbir at director Imtiaz Ali's birthday party last night and apparently Shah Rukh had to abide by his promise and give Ranbir the promised prize money. SRK shared a picture, which show Ranbir gleefully collecting the sum, and he wrote in caption: "Jagga Jasoos we r quits now!!! Hisaab barabar. Give @karanjohar his share for the 'Jab' part in JHMS please. (sic)" Karan Johar quickly noticed what's going on and clarified his share. He tweeted: "Yes am waiting !! Ranbir owes me 1,250 rupees! (sic)"
 
 

The final title of Shah Rukh Khan's film was revealed on social media last week. At that time, Ranbir Kapoor claimed that he suggested the title of SRK's film. "I suggested Jab Harry Met Sejal to SRK," Ranbir said casually while launching the new song from his own film Jagga Jasoos in Mumbai. "I am going to Mannat (SRK's Mumbai home) to take the Rs 5,000 because it is my title," he added. At the same time, SRK tweeted: "Just in case Ranbir Kapoor ever claims it...the title Jab Harry met Sejal was never ever suggested by him!So he doesn't win the Rs.5000 reward (sic)."
 

Apparently, there was a contest (of sorts) to come up with a title for the film which remained nameless for months - although several reports claimed that the title was The Ring and later Rehnuman. Actress Alia Bhatt also participated but the makers didn't use her suggestion. SRK said he's use Alia's suggested title for their next film.

Jab Harry Met Sejal also stars actress Anuhska Sharma. The film will open in theatres on August 4, a week before Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
