When Misha and Zain watched Jab We Met
Talking to Instant Bollywood in a recent interview about his kids watching Jab We Met, Shahid said, “I don’t like them seeing me much. So, first day their first question was 'Why do people come up to you?' Because they hadn’t seen much of my work. Now, recently they just saw Jab We Met. It had come out in theatres. So, my mom took them to see it and Mira wanted them to go and see it. She was like 'This is one film where you are not like hitting people and doing all this intense stuff. It is a family viewing kind of film, so I want them to go and see it'. So, that actually, I think the first film of mine that they saw.”
Jab We Met's re-release
PVR Cinemas organised the screening of the film as part of the Valentine’s Week 2023 extravaganza. During its re-release, several fans had shared pictures and videos of an excited audience as they watched the film in theatres again.
