Why did Anushka say that SRK can’t act? The actress speaks!
Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma are leaving no stone unturned to promote their upcoming film ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’. Recently, in conversation with Rajeev Masand, Shah Rukh Khan himself confessed how his co-star Anushka Sharma came up to him and said, “You can’t act!”
Yes, you read that right! It was during the shoot of their first film together ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ (2008), that marked Anushka’s debut, that she told this to SRK who has been in the film industry for over 25 years now. Although it was all in jest on the part of SRK as Anushka has cleared the air about this saying that she has never said that.
It was during one of the promotional events when the actress was asked about SRK’s claim, to which she replied saying, “I have never said that in my life. I have never said that. He just likes to pull my leg, constantly saying that all around. But that’s not a fact at all.” (Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan revealed that the story of ‘JHMS’ was initially about a suicidal man)
‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is the third time when Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma will be seen teaming up on the big screen after ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ (2008) and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ (2012).
In an earlier interview with a leading daily, SRK had opened up about his character Harry and also his idea of romance. He said, “I believe Harry could be the evolution of how Raj and Rahul would be. He’s decent, has a sense of humour and some anger. Inherently, a lover is someone who demands love, he doesn’t beg for it and respects the woman he is in love with. When Imtiaz narrated the story, we did a few rehearsals. He had Anushka in mind and had spoken to her. The marriage happened because I respect his language and he respects the love I have for a love story.” [sic]
‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is slated to hit the screens on August 4, 2017.
