The premiere for Yash Chopra’s last film “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” will be like a moving museum of the late filmmaker’s work, says Shah Rukh Khan and hopes it turns out to be a “memorable” event for the film fraternity.
“There will be a big screen, and a special sound system is being brought down by specialists who will make film-watching possible in areas which are not regular studios,” Shah Rukh, the leading man of JTHJ, revealed here Wednesday.
“It’ll be a moving museum of Yashji’s work, which kind of does not end, but continues with ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. But somewhere down the line, the journey is still there,” added the 46-year-old, on the sidelines of the launch of a furnishings store, Bioscopewallah.
The Chopra family – the filmmaker’s wife Pamela, and sons Aditya and Uday – are planning the grand event.
“I don’t know the exact designing, that Adi (Aditya), Uday and Pam aunty must be doing with a lot of love and care. Hopefully, everybody will come, have a great time and enjoy this eventful and entertaining film,” he added.
Shah Rukh also said that the grand premiere was planned even before Yash Chopra’s death Oct 21.
“The decision to have a premiere was actually even before he passed away. We were thinking of how to do it. At that time the idea was that we’ll do the different aspects of cinema he has done – romance, thrill and everyone can party all around the studio,” Shah Rukh said.
JTHJ, releasing on Diwali Nov 13, also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
