The first trailer of Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer YRF’s next ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ has been released and the trailer for sure displays a sizzling chemistry between the two. This is for the first time that King Khan and Katrina Kaif have been paired together and as far as the trailer shows, they rock as a Jodi.
The trailer has no dialogues. Instead, a soul touching poem plays in the background that has been recited by SRK himself. The trailer depicts the epitome of romance with passion, love, cosiness and warmth oozing in every glance and every move.
The film’s promo also shows Shahrukh Khan romancing Anushka Sharma as well. However, this stands nowhere close to the sizzling chemistry that SRK shares with Katrina Kaif.
This film marks the comeback of Yash Chopra in direction. His last film was ‘Veer Zaara’ which happened eight years back. Filmmaker Karan Johar says that it might be his last film.
“Yashji (Yash Chopra) is like my father. His birthday this year is very special because he is probably making his last film. All of our films are releasing this year but that film will be the most special experience of 2012,” said Karan adding, “This year is special not just for him but for the whole industry because Yashji`s last film is releasing this year.”
