Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan paid Ranbir Kapoor Rs5000 (Dh284.5) for suggesting the title of his new Imtiaz Ali movie, Jab Harry Met Sejal.
The 51-year-old actor took to Twitter to share a picture with Kapoor, where he is seen offering the actor Rs5000, the reward fixed by the team of the movie for coming up with the title.
Khan also asked Kapoor to pay filmmaker Karan Johar his share as he suggested the “Jab” part of the title.
“Jagga Jasoos we are quits now!!! Hisaab barabar (We’re even now). Give @karanjohar his share for the ‘Jab’ part in JHMS please,” Khan tweeted.
Johar replied, “Yes am waiting! Ranbir owes me 1,250 rupees!”
The banter began after Kapoor said that he was the one who suggested the title of the movie, which also stars Anushka Sharma.
The first look of the movie was released last week after which Khan tweeted saying, “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 Rs5,000 reward.”
