Film­maker Yash Cho­pra’s last di­rec­to­rial be­fore he died, Jab Tak Hai Jaan will re­main etched in the minds and hearts of movie buffs. After all, no­body could make Shah Rukh Khan ro­mance on screen the way Yash Cho­pra did. Star­ring Ka­t­rina Kaif and Anushka Sharma as Shah Rukh’s lead­ing ladies, the film com­pletes five years of its re­lease to­day. While it was for the first time that Ka­t­rina and Shah Rukh were paired to­gether as an on-screen cou­ple, this was Anushka’s sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tion with Shah Rukh after her de­but in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008. A love story be­tween Ma­jor Sa­mar Anand, a sol­dier for the Bomb Dis­posal Squad (played by Shah Rukh) and a busi­ness woman Meera Tha­par (Ka­t­rina), and later, how a documentary film­maker Akira (Anushka) falls for Shah Rukh, the film showed SRK as a 28-year-old street mu­si­cian in Lon­don, and an in­tro­verted bomb­dis­posal ex­pert officer, a decade later. With siz­zling on­screen chem­istry, sooth­ing mu­si­cal notes, pic­turesque lo­ca­tions, and po­etry that touches hearts, Jab Tak Hai Jaan was a per­fect blend of all el­e­ments that could make a movie a hit. On the film’s fifth an­niver­sary, here’s tak­ing a look at some of the in­ter­est­ing trivia that you prob­a­bly wouldn’t know.
