Imtiaz Ali: “When I did Jab We Met, I thought it was not a romantic film, but obviously it is”


‘Jab We Met’ (2007) was a film that made the world swoon. The story and acting by Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan is one that has remained memorable, and many have said that it is one of Imtiaz Ali’s best works. As the film approaches a decade on 26th October, Ali admits that he did not think of it as an romantic film.

Hindustan Times reports Ali saying, “When making a movie, you try to do your best, you write your best, you try to make it as natural and fun. But one thing I have realized is that if you put artificiality in a film and try to make it spicy for that moment, those things start looking redundant very soon. Keeping it pure is very essential in order for it to be remembered. When I did Jab We Met, I thought it is not a romantic film, but obviously it is because everyone says so. It is only after my film is made, released and reacted to….As far as I think, it is not a romantic type.”

Ali’s last, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ (2017) failed to connect with the audience, but he does say he is working on two films right now.
