- Mumbai, Nov 1 (IANS) The title song of Yash Chopra's "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", which could not be shot due to the late filmmaker's death, will now be placed in the end-titles of the movie. It will have visuals capturing moments from the film's shooting.
The song was to be initially shot in Chopra's favourite destination Switzerland, with Katrina Kaif in the trademark chiffon saris. But the shoot remained incomplete as Chopra breathed his last Oct 21.
Now the song will be used. The decision was taken at a flash-meeting held at the Yash Raj Films studio last week, immediately after Chopra's chautha, where Aditya Chopra met up with the film's lyricist Gulzar.
"Gulzar sahab felt that the song shouldn't go to waste since it is not only the title song, but also was very close to Yashji's heart. Although Yashji couldn't shoot the song it was decided that the song would now be used along with the end titles of the film," said a source.
It is also being contemplated that the end-titles would feature visuals showing some takes and moments during the shooting of the film.
"'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is being packaged as a befitting send-off to Yashji," the source added.
The film features Katrina, Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan, in what appears to be a love triangle. A grand premiere is being planned for the movie, which releases Nov 13.
