Box Office: Below Avg.

jab-harry-met-sejal-poster-1JAB HARRY MET SEJAL is a story of a bored tourist guide whose life takes a turn thanks to a spunky tourist. Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) takes visitors on a tour across several European countries. He’s a bit aloof, rude and finds it difficult to maintain long lasting relationships. Sejal (Anushka Sharma) is a tourist who has taken the services of Harry along with her entire family. She gets engaged during the trip to Rupen (Kavi Shastri). Unfortunately, her engagement ring gets lost and she refuses to go back to Mumbai until she finds it. She compels Harry to help her find the ring and he agrees to do so reluctantly. How Harry and Sejal discover each other and also themselves during the course of their ‘mission’ forms the rest of the film.

Written and directed by Imtiaz Ali. It features Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles.
