Shah Rukh Khan’s 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' fails to impress

Shah Rukh Khan has all reasons to feel anxious. All his recent films, including Raees, have underperformed at the box office. And now, his latest film, Jab Harry Met Sejal, has opened to hooting reviews and declining crowds. The movie had a decent first day, but there was a stop in the second day and the film had a minus Rs 50 crore weekend — an unprecedented event for an SRK-starrer. While some may try to say that the film is doing “roaring” business, reality is otherwise. Jab Harry Met Sejal may end up losing more money than any other SRK-starrer since Dulha Mil Gaya in 2010.

A source from film, who doesn’t want to be named says, “Shah Rukh’s films attain blockbuster status only when he collaborates with his favourite directors — Yash Chopra, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Farah Khan, Farhan Akhtar or even Rohit Shetty — while playing a romantic lover-boy. But when he steps out of his comfort zone, he falters. Ashutosh Gowariker in Swades, Rahul Dholakia in Raees, Maneesh Sharma in Fan, Imtiaz Ali in Jab Harry Met Sejal are some examples. Now he has Aanand L. Rai’s untitled film, where he plays a midget. Audiences wouldn’t want to see him cut down to size.”
