Jab Tak Hai Jaan is more than a movie: Shah Rukh Khan

Added by harini on Oct 31, 2012

Yash Chopra’s last movie ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is the most eagerly anticipated movie of the year.

Given that it’s Yash Chopra’s last movie, the star cast of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma and the hype surrounding the movie trade analysts have predicted that ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ has the ground work laid to cross the 200 Crore landmark.

“See again they are restricting my creativity, but jokes apart it doesn't matter I make movies because I believe in them am not driven by numbers, truly,” said Shah Rukh Khan to a popular daily.

The speculations of whether ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ will break Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ have been rife in the media as well as among the audience.

“You know am just tired with these so called battles or whatever you may call them, I make a movie or am part of project because I have faith in it, I give it my all that's it. I just focus on my project and am not concerned with what's happening around me, but it's okay I may matter to people if they create a good or bad hype around my movie, I must matter to them,” he said.

Shah Rukh Khan said that ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ wasn’t just a movie for him but meant a lot more than that.

“You know my father used to tell me you should visit Kashmir with your father, in the sense, it's the place of my forefathers so if you visit it you must have your father with you. But my father passed on, and I didn't get an opportunity to shoot there till Yashi ji told me lets go we are going to Kashmir for ‘Jab Tak Hain Jaan’, I was surprised but thought of my father and said great am going to paradise with a father figure. Yash ji after canning the last shot with me on the jeep in Kashmir said, "Bas Shah Rukh , ab ho gaya". I said, "kya", Yashji said, "Ab main film nahin banaunga". I said, "Yeh kya bol rahe ho aisa nahi ho sakta", to which Yashji said, "Ab waqt hogaya", he hugged me and we both wept. We are very emotional people Yashji and me. But today when I look back to the incident I wonder ‘Jab Tak Hain Jaan’ isn't just a film for me it's much more than that. I don't even know what to say about the film. Even if people ask me about Katrina or Anushka, what do I say. I don't know how to answer anything about the movie,” said emotional Shah Rukh.

This is the first time that Shah Rukh Khan is working with Katrina Kaif. The movie also reunites him with his ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ co-star Anushka Sharma.

When asked why his heroines were getting younger with each movie Shah Rukh Khan jokingly said, “The young girls like me and I like older women. Hahhaaa see I have the best.. guys just joking.”

‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ will release this Diwali on November 13.
