Teri aankhon ki namkeen mastiyaan
Teri hansi ki beparwah gustaakhiyaan
Teri zulfon ki lehraati angdaaiyaan
Nahin bhoolunga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan

Tera haath se haath chhodna
Tera saayon ka rukh modna
Tera palat ke phir na dekhna
Nahin maaf karunga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan

Baarishon mein bedhadak tere naachne se
Baat Baat pe bewajah tere roothne se
Chhoti chhoti teri bachkaani badmaashiyon se
Mohabbat karunga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan

Tere jhoothe kasme vaadon se
Tere jalte sulagte khaabon se
Teri bereham duaaon se
Nafrat karunga main
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan


Shahrukh Khan as Samar
Khan’s role in the film will span two ages, one in his late twenties as a musician based in London and the other at an older age as an introverted, composed, dutiful army officer in Kashmir.In an interview, Shahrukh revealed many details about his Jab Tak Hai Jaan character. He said Samar is “angry, unforgiving, with loads of emotional baggage. I play him sweet when he needs to be, actually he is a lot like me. Samar is a combination of angst, tenderness, anger and yeah he’s pretty unforgiving. He’s a lover who feels there is arrogance in love. You know, when you are in love then you tend to feel more confident about yourself. You feel confident and arrogant that somebody loves me.” Shahrukh added that there is “a sense of ownership in Samar. He feels he owns the person he loves but then when it’s needed he can show his frailty also. I like this in him, he accepts his flaws and weaknesses.”
