In 1975, Gabbar Singh told Basanti, “Jab tak tere paaon chalenge uski sans chalegi.” And the chammak challo from 'Sholay' danced crazy to the beat of the RD Burman number “Jab tak hai jaan, jaane jahaan, main naachoongi.”
As we all know, it’s been the first time in the history of Bollywood, that a filmmaker had kept the title of his movie ‘under wraps’ till its neared release. Even as a teaser of the movie was out recently with the theatrical release of 'Ek Tha Tiger', everyone was kept wondering what its title was!
But the cat is finally out of the bag. The Yash Raj Films SRK-Katrina starrer has been titled 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', sounding like an ode to the 'Sholay' song, with music for the film composed by AR Rehman.
“Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra were really happy that Hema Malini continued to dance her emotions out with the song in 'Sholay',” quips Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar. “What better title for SRK than one which consolidates his never-ending box-office romp. It aptly compliments his never-say-die attitude,” adds the publicity expert, complimenting the intelligent title.
We don't know much about others, but it sure would make Hema Malini very very happy!
Scheduled for a November 13, 2012 release, the film, also starring Anushka Sharma in the lead, is believed to be a love triangle and marks the return of Yash Chopra as a director after a gap of eight years; his last film being 'VeerZaara' in 2004.
Meanwhile, there are rumours that the theatrical trailer of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' will be released on the filmmaker’s birthday on September 27.
