Imtiaz Ali's forthcoming romantic comedy, JAB WE MET is eagerly awaited for a number of reasons.

Pritam's chartbusting music and the fact that lovebirds Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor feature together on screen for the fourth time (after "Fida", "36 China Town" and "Chup Chup Ke"), the romantic comedy has been shot largely in the princely state of Nabha, which is located in the heart of Punjab.

As Kareena Kapoor plays the role of Geet, a talkative Sikh girl from Bhatinda (in Punjab), she had to familiarize herself with the mannerisms and lingo of the region. This is the first time Kareena is essaying a proper Punjabi character and during the shoot she was given a few dialogues with Aditya (Shahid Kapur) in chaste Punjabi. Even during the usual Hindi dialogues, her diction needed to be given a minor Punjabi twang.

To ensure this, at the time of dubbing, the film's editor, Aarti Bajaj ("Salaam-e-Ishq", "Black Friday", etc.) diligently helped Kareena with her Punjabi pronunciation to give the character of Geet in JAB WE MET added authenticity.

The film, which releases worldwide on October 26, is an idyllic train journey into the heartland of Punjab when Aditya and Geet sub-consciously find love!
