The Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to woo you on August 4. At the moment, the duo is busy promoting the Imtiaz Ali film, which is surely increasing our interest for the flick. SRK recently talked about the film during an event where he revealed interesting facts about his director Imtiaz Ali. The Raees actor said the filmmaker is a big foodie and used to take him to "weird" places for food during the shooting of the film.
Shah Rukh, who will be seen sharing screen space with actress Anushka Sharma in "Jab Harry Met Sejal", appeared on TV show "Yaar Mere Superstar Season 2" to promote the film.
Asked whether the news about Imtiaz being foodie is true, Shah Rukh said: "That is also one of the things common between (late) Yash Chopra and Imtiaz. Talks about the film is less compared to food."
He added: "After we used to finish our shoot in the evening, at first he (Imitiaz) used to be a bit pulled back, but then in the evening he would ask if I wanted to join him as he found a really good restaurant."
But it was not that easy for Shah Rukh as Imtiaz would make him "walk like anything, in between small roads".
"He (Imtiaz) takes you to this small place and says, ‘Sir, this is it'. And, I didn't know how he has found it -- really nice food, really different kind. I had never had this kind of food, but out of love for him I would eat it," Shah Rukh said.
He said out of courtesy he even had sea food which he didn't want to taste.
"One or two times, he has made me have some weird seafood dish, which I later realised what it was, and was really scared. Why did I eat it? Don't know, something like a snail or something. I don't want to, I didn't know and I ate it," Shah Rukh said.
"I am a little shy and embarrassed so, I don't tell people if I don't like it. But usually the food was good only. So, I didn't feel bad, but he took me to a weird place and to eat something like that. Imtiaz knew everyone by name -- Maria, Alphonso, Roberto, he knows everybody by name at nightclubs, pubs and restaurants."
"According to me, he is quite a tour-guide, he should be a tour-guide himself," Shah Rukh added.
