No Need Of Disrespectful Words To Sell Film: SRK On Jab Harry Met Sejal 'Intercourse' Issue

Pahlaj Nihlani’s CBFC board has a good knack of giving finger to every movie that is far from being obscene or uses vulgar language? Hang on! Is the word ‘intercourse’ vulgar?

In the second mini trail of upcoming Imtiaz Ali film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma- 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', Anushka uses the word ‘intercourse’ as part of their indemnity bond.

After the tiff with Pahlaj Nihani who had earlier condemned the use of the word saying that it needs to be removed if the film needs U/A certification, Shah Rukh Khan on the day of Eid broke his silence over the issue and said that he doesn’t need the word ‘intercourse’ to sell his film.

After the trail’s release Pahlaj Nihlani had said, “You take voting from the public and I will clear the word (intercourse) on the promo and the film also. I want 1 lakh votes and I want to see that India has changed and Indian families want their 12-year-old kids to understand the meaning of this word (intercourse).”

Shah Rukh Khan spoke to the media and said- “I think I am below 18, so I cannot vote (laughed). On a serious note, neither I, nor anyone in the film – Imtiaz, Irshad, Pritam da or anyone would use any disrespectful word that hurts a family or anyone’s sentiment. We are yet to send the film to the censors and they should watch the whole film to decide.”

Watch the usage of the word 'intercourse' in Mini Trail 2 of Jab Harry Met Sejal:

'Jab Harry Met Sejal' is scheduled to release on August 04. The film is Anushka Sharma’s third collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan after 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaaan'.


  1. Please, do not removet. It's not offensive at all, because it's not been used in a vulgar way. Without it the scene wouldn't be so hilarious.
