- Ranbir Kapoor has to give Karan Johar's share too

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.
