Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, whose latest film - Jab Harry Met Sejal - tanked at the box office and proved to be yet another flop in Shah Rukh Khan’s kitty, has reacted to the response the film has received.

Imtiaz took to social media and thanked everyone for their responses, both positive and negative. He wrote on Instagram and Facebook, “Thanks for all the love, thanks for the positive comments, thanks also for the criticism. I hope all of it helps me make better and better films for you :) lots of love. (sic)”

Despite featuring Bollywood stars Shah Rukh and Anushka Sharma in lead roles, Jab Harry Met Sejal received negative reviews and was unanimously panned by the critics. The movie has made Rs 52.90 crore in four days. It failed to cross Rs 20-crore mark on any single day.

Jab Harry Met Sejal, made at an estimated budget of Rs 90 crore, hit theatres last Friday across more than 3,200 screens.

The film stars Shah Rukh as a tour guide and Anushka his Gujrati clients. Jab Harry Met Sejal traces Anushka‘s story - she has misplaced her engagement ring and tours across Europe to find it, with some help from her tour guide.
