There are a lot of on-screen hit couples in the industry and one of them is Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan. The actors first appeared together on screen in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, which marked the debut of the Sultan actor. Later, the duo went on to become Yash Raj Ne Bana Di Jodi as they reappeared in Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Now, the actors have wrapped up the shooting of their third film together, which was tentatively titled The Ring. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, it is SRK and Anushka’s first collaboration with the filmmaker. On November 29, Shah Rukh’s close friends – Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt – released the first look of the film and announced the release date as well.
While the entire industry, including us, are extremely excited about this project, the first look gave us deja vu. And the reason is we have seen SRK and Anushka earlier, exactly like this. In fact, Shah Rukh’s grizzled look is how we saw him in his Dear Zindagi cameo (which we think was so much more than a cameo).
We are well versed with the chirpy side of Anushka. Now, if you watch Jiya Re song from Jab Tak Hai Jaan, you will feel as if the look of this Imtiaz Ali film has been lifted from the song itself. There are a lot of uncanny resemblances in the look of the new film and the song. The only difference is that Jiya Re captured a scenic view while The Ring’s first look has a desert backdrop.
The buzz around this untitled film has been on ever since the first look release. The biggies of the industry, Salman Khan, Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt, shared the first look of the film and also discussed what could be the title of the film. However, going purely by the first look of the film, we think it can be Jab Tak Hai Jaan 2.
Over the years, Anushka – SRK have shared a special bond. In fact, the two also appeared on a television chat-show, Yaaron Ki Baarat. Now we are just waiting what’s going to be the title of the film officially and what’s the next buzz the film is going to create.
