Shah Rukh Khan has a spe­cial thank-you ges­ture for a group of peo­ple who hon­oured him re­cently. He will be or­gan­is­ing a spe­cial screen­ing of his film Jab Harry Met

Se­jal, co-star­ring Anushka Sharma, for mem­bers of the Jodh­pur Tourist Guide As­so­ci­a­tion. “SRK has made ar­range­ments for the guides and their fam­i­lies to catch a spe­cial screen­ing of the movie dur­ing the first week­end of its re­lease,” says a source. The film is re­leas­ing today na­tion­wide.

Why the ges­ture? Well, be­cause Shah Rukh, who plays tour guide Harry in the film, is now an hon­orary mem­ber of the Jodh­pur Tourist Guide As­so­ci­a­tion. The or­gan­i­sa­tion pre­sented him with this mem­ber­ship and a guide’s badge at a re­cent event. Speak­ing about that event, the source says, “SRK, who was in Jaipur to pro­mote the movie, took a de­tour and vis­ited Jodh­pur to re­ceive the hon­our. The ac­tor re­ceived a tra­di­tional Jodh­puri wel­come from the tourist guides with a Ra­jasthani pagdi, as he landed in the Blue City.”

Di­rected by Im­tiaz Ali, who is known for the love sto­ries that he makes, Jab Harry Met Se­jal, too, is a ro­man­tic film that traces the ad­ven­tur­ous es­capades of two strangers — Harinder Singh Nehra aka Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) and Se­jal Jhaveri (Anushka Sharma) — when they set out to search for a ring across six coun­tries. The au­di­ence gets to travel with them, too!
