While Imtiaz was all ready to cut the cake, SRK decided to pull the shy filmmaker’s leg and started cracking a few hilarious jokes. One of them was, “Ranbir free nahi tha, isliye mujhe cast kar diya Imtiaz ne.” That is hilarious, indeed! Do you think Shah Rukh was serious or was he totally joking about it? Let us know in the comments below. Later on, Imtiaz also hosted a small birthday bash which was attended by the stars who were a part of his films namely SRK, Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt. They were all in a happy and chirpy mood and were all smiles for the shutterbugs present outside the venue. Talking about the title of SRK-Imtiaz’s film, Jab Harry Met Sejal, many stars like Ranbir, Alia and Karan Johar claimed that they had given a lot of suggestions for the title. Out of which, Ranbir’s was the Chosen One.  Talking about it, SRK had tweeted, “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 Rs.5000 reward.” Ranbir finally received the money he owed from Shah Rukh Khan for suggesting the much talked about title. King Khan shared a picture of himself giving RK the money with a quirky caption that is sure to make you laugh. He said, “Jagga Jasoos we r quits now!!! Hisaab barabar. Give @karanjohar his share for the ‘Jab’ part in JHMS please.” On reading Shah Rukh Khan’s tweet, Karan Johar too tweeted and added, “Yes am waiting !! Ranbir owes me 1,250 rupees!” We are loving the banter between the two superstars and how!  For the latest in Bollywood, TV & Fashion download our updated Android App OR our iOS App.
