YRF’s SRK- Kat starrer titled Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Filmmaker Yash Chopra has finally locked a name for his new directorial. The Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma-starrer love triangle is titled ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.This much-hyped film, whose name was a well-kept secret, was revealed in a full-page poster in a national daily. Within a few hours of the title release, the name of the film started trending on Twitter and the micro-blogging website was flooded with people expressing their opinion about the musical title of the film.
The full-page spread showed Gulzar’s lyrics for the title track and a suave Shah Rukh Khan, dressed as an army man looking regal on his Royal Enfield motorcycle.’Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ marks the directorial comeback of Chopra, who last helmed the 2004 Shah Rukh, Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta starrer cross-border romance ‘Veer-Zaara’.
Here’s the poem:
“Teri aankhon ki namkeen mastiyaan
Teri hansi ki beparwa gustaakhiyaan
Teri zulfon ki lehrati angdaaiyaan
Nahi bhoolunga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan
Tera haath se haath chodna
Tera saayon ka rukh modna
Tera palat ke phir na dekhna
Nahin maaf karoonga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan”
The title seems to have been inspired from a song of the same name from the 1975 hit film ‘Sholay’.The official announcement of the title was made Tuesday, following months of speculation that it would be called ‘London Ishq’ or ‘Yaara Silli Silli’.
The crew has also shot in London and were shooting in the scenic Kashmir Valley till last week.
The film’s poster gives a sneak peek into Katrina’s feminine look in the film, while it shows Anushka as a rough and tough girl, riding a bike. Shah Rukh sports two looks – a romantic, clean shaven hero look, and another, a grungy, bearded look.
‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ has also brought together the award-winning pair of A.R. Rahman and Gulzar, who are said to have created some wonderful and poetic music for this romantic film.
Trade analyst and Bollywood insider Taran Adarsh tweeted:
“Breaking: Yash Chopra’s new film is called ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. Stars @iamsrk Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.”
