Mumbai: On Friday, Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and director Imtiaz Ali unveiled the most-anticipated trailer of their film 'Jab Harry Met Sejal.'

Shah Rukh Khan, who couldn't make it personally at the trailer launch, engaged with the media via video call. He is currently in Los Angeles.

 

Since, the film had an infamous feud with the Censor board chief Pankaj Nihalani over the word 'intercourse' used in one of the mini-trails. At the trailer launch, Imtiaz Ali was questioned about the film's certification.

The director set the record straight by saying, "We have got a U/A certificate, the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification' has asked us for some small changes in the audio, but there have been no video cuts."

For the uninitiated this was the entire case:

Pahlaj Nihalani, the chief of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), had asked to delete the word 'intercourse' from one of the mini-promos of the film for TV, saying he would retain it if he gets one lakh votes in its favour.

Later, Nihalani received one lakh votes in the film's favour, and when Shah Rukh was asked about his reaction, he said, "The way people have voted, they should come and watch the film too. I've said this before as well, we respect the CBFC a lot, they are doing their job, we are doing ours."

Shah Rukh with be seen playing the role of a guide in Imtiaz Ali directorial 'Jab Harry met Sejal' where he will be seen romancing Anushka Sharma.

Film is slated to release on August 4.
