Jab Tak Hai Jaan to be released with incomplete song

Added by harini on Oct 30, 2012

Days after legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra’s death, fashion designer Manish Malhotra revealed that a portion of a song from ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ was yet to be shot. Yash Chopra had planned on shooting this portion of the song in his signature style featuring Katrina Kaif in a chiffon sari in Switzerland.

Shah Rukh Khan recently revealed that the movie will be released with the incomplete song as they dint want to tamper with Yash Chopra’s signature style.

“Just a minute and a half of the song was left. He (Chopra) wanted to do it in Switzerland. We don't have the heart to shoot that part now. We will make it impure if we had to shoot it,” said Shah Rukh Khan to IANS during a promotional event of the movie.

The actor said that other than that portion of the song the whole movie was complete.

“The movie is ready for release. He (Chopra) had finished editing and the background mix was happening. The film was locked by Yash ji. The film which you will see has been entirely made by Yash Chopra,” he said.

The movie is all set to release on Diwali, November 13. Ajay Devgn’s eagerly anticipated movie ‘Son of Sardaar’ too is scheduled to release on the same day. Shah Rukh Khan feels that it is unfair to ask anyone to change the release date of the movie so as to avoid a clash at the box-office.

“It is unfair to ask anybody to change the release date of their film. Everybody loves their films. Yash ji would have felt the same way. Films will always overlap and it is not fair for us to ask them to change it,” he said.

There has been a lot of talk about the movie garnering 200 Crores at the box-office and breaking all records. But Shah Rukh Khan said that he wasn’t a businessman and only wanted his movie to do well.

“I am not a businessman. I just feel that my films should be enjoyed by all. I have earned enough money and awards in my life, so numbers don't matter. But you are anxious when your film is all set to release,” he concluded.

Along with Shah Rukh Khan ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
