Talking about it, Shah Rukh said in a statement: “The whole idea of ‘mini trails’ is to introduce Harry and Sejal, the two players amidst the beautiful love story. These trails will serve as moments from their journey which gradually lead to the bigger story that would unfold in the theatres.” Romantic drama, Harry Met Sajel is scheduled to release on August 4. It is a film that traces the love story of a Punjabi man played by Shah Rukh and a Gujarati girl essayed by Anushka Sharma.

The thought behind these trails is to draw audiences closer to Harry and Sejal.”
