Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan who is busy promoting his next – Zero recently opened up about how his last release Jab Harry Met Sejal bombed at the box-office. The actor who now gears up for the release of his next this December admits that he let the audiences down. It’s not every day when a superstar talks about his failures and this time around King Khan did open up about in his recent interview.
The actor said, “I let people down with Jab Harry Met Sejal, which was an utter flop. But I didn’t want to let anyone down; I just liked the fact that koi story nahin thi, sirf ek ring ke chakkar mein the two people (SRK’s Harry and Anushka Sharma’s Sejal) kheechey chale jaate hain… it was very organic, slice-of-life thi. The other day I met a director who mentioned the term ‘slice-of-life’ and I said, ‘nahin, poora pumpkin do mujhe iss baar.”
Jab Harry Met Sejal was helmed by Imtiaz Ali and starred Anushka Sharma opposite SRK in the lead. The film only did business of Rs 68 crores approximately. Nevertheless, if the trade gurus are to be believed, King Khan is all set to win everyone with Aanand L Rai’s Zero which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in important roles.
