Yash Chopra’s wish: To promote JTHJ from his hometown

Jab Tak Hai JaanYash Chopra’s wish, was the cast of his last film “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” will begin the promotions from the late filmmaker’s hometown — Jalandhar, Punjab.

“Yashji’s last wish was to start off the promotions from Jalandhar first and then move out to other cities,” said a source from the film’s team.

Actors Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif will hold a press conference at Hotel Cabana Wednesday at noon in Jalandhar.

From there the cast will visit Doaba College Jalandhar, where Yash Chopra studied, to inaugurate a new media course, which the college has decided to commence in honour of the veteran director.

Yash Chopra died Oct 21, following multi-organ failure resulting from complications that arose after he contracted dengue. He was 80.

He had completed the entire shooting of his last directorial venture “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, except for a song.

The film is coming out on Diwali, November 13.



  • YRF have done all cheap tricks to get the screens. Ajay could also have booked the screens when his Bol Bachchan was about to release. but he didn’t bcoz he beleives in fair play.
    but srk & yrf were so insecure that they used Salman Khan’s star power to pre-book all the better single screens.
    yrf have lost the repect it had since years, becoz of their cheap act. talking about srk, he was never respected in the 1st place.

  • SRK has promised that he/she shall give good cash to all those websites who declare JTHJ as blockbuster.
    this time he’s very tensed bcoz of SON OF SARDAAR. he doesn’t want to lose to AJAY, after losing to Salman, Aamir, Hrithik, Akshay & even Ranbir.
    so this time manipulation will be huge.

  • jalandhar would be a good place to start with,sos dont have great hype in punjab its just over hyped by some idiots here,movies like jthj barfi vicky donor kahani makes our industry stronger not some idiotic south remake craps like sos

  • The box office collision between Jab Tak Hai Jaan starring Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar on November 13 was always going to be a clash of titans. In an unexpected twist, Ajay Devgn accused Yash Raj Films, producer of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, of using it’s dominant position to edge Son Of Sardaar out of the competition. Ajay Devgn alleged that his film was not finding enough single screen theatres. The Competition Commission of India has now rejected Ajay’s petition filed against Yash Raj Films.
    Here’s what happened, and who said what:
    Ajay Devgn’s production house claims Yash Raj Films ‘armtwisted’ distributors to keep Son Of Sardaar out of theaters. A legal notice sent by his production house to Yash Raj Films stated that a complaint had been filed with the Competition Commission of India. Ajay says he filed the complaint after sending messages to Yash Raj Films. “Through people messages were sent and things were spoken. Directly I haven’t met them …I don’t share that rapport with them. And through exhibitors themselves we tried to manage things but when it did not happen..then,” he told PTI.
    Earlier, YRF in a statement had claimed to have booked less than 1,500 single screens out of the 10,500-plus single screens available on all-India basis. They also said, “When we approached the theatre owners earlier this year, they were more than happy to accommodate Jab Tak Hai Jaan, owing to their long relationship with the production house. No one was forced to include our film in their theatres.” Yash Raj Films closed it’s distribution deals before the release of it’s previous film, Ek Tha Tiger starring Salman Khan. Some theatres who screened Ek Tha Tiger have apparently chosen not to show Jab Tak Hai Jaan at all.
    Ajay says this is not true. “Out of the 10,000 screens if they have booked 1,500 and I have 8,000 screens then am I fool to spend money and lose my reputation and go to court. It does not make sense logically. Secondly going by the statistics then out of the 10,000-12,000 screens more than 5,000-6,000 are in South where only regional films release,” he told PTI. “Then in the remaining 4,000-4,500 screens 1,500-2,000 are closed… Those which are operational are less. For example in Dadar there are about seven single screen theatres they have booked six, in Delhi there are 21 single screens we have three.. This is something that has never happened before. You can verify it,” he added.
    Ajay also told PTI that he had filed the notice much before the death of Yash Chopra on October 21. “I had filed the complaint much before the demise of Yash Chopra. When this happened I was like people are going to target me and nobody is going to understand my point of view. I was a villain on both sides. I couldn’t withdraw it (notice) from the Competition Commission. It is not a normal court,” Ajay said. “I respected Yashji as much anybody else does. We have grown up watching his films,” he added.
    Shah Rukh Khan, star of Jab Tak Hai Jaan which is the last film directed by Yash Chopra, says the controversy is a legal matter and has nothing to do with him. “I was reading about it today. There are enough screens. These are all legal matters and thankfully it’s not my production company,” Shah Rukh told reporters at a press meet on his 47th birthday in Mumbai. “I hope they resolve it and on this Friday both the films do well. I have nothing against anyone. I have no problem with anyone,” he said.

  • The Jab Tak Hai Jaan advance opened on Monday at select theatres, mainly single screens. The major multiplex chains have not opening advance to the public as yet.

    Urvashi in Bangalore saw fantastic results with excellent sales. The huge single single screen with 1050 seats and ticket rates in the range of Rs 200-300 has seen around 40% tickets sold for the 4 shows on day one.

    The theatre has a huge capacity with possibility of collecting around 7 lakhs nett a day and seems like Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be going full or near full at this theatre on day one.
