Trivia


 

    Album

  • This was Yash Chopra's comeback to film direction. His last film prior to this was "Veer Zaara" (2004). It was also his last film as director. He passed away on October 21, 2012, a few weeks before its release. The film was dedicated to his memory. It opened with an image of the director with a voiceover of a poem recited by him. Yash Chopra has written this poem and recited it during a conversation with Shah Rukh Khan in a function convened to celebrate his 80th birthday. The poem was his way of saying goodbye after announcing his retirement. The film closed with a montage of behind-the-scenes shots featuring the director and ended with the message - "and he lives on... forever."[1][2]
  • This was the only film in which Yash Chopra worked with A.R. Rahman and Gulzar.
  • Writer Anand Panda alleged that some scenes in this film had been plagiarised from a script title "Ghost War" written by him. He said that in 2011 he had submitted the script to Yash Raj Films but they had rejected it. According to him, the production house had then used his script for the film "Ek Tha Tiger" (2012). Panda had filed a complaint of copyright infringement against Yash Raj Films.[3][4]
  • The title of the film may have been inspired by a song from "Sholay" (1975).[5]
  • A controversy erupted before the film's release when Ajay Devgan Films (ADF) sent a legal notice to Yash Raj Films (YRF). ADF accused YRF of using their dominant position in the film industry to get more single-screen theatres to show their film and depriving his upcoming film "Son Of Sardaar" (2012) of screens in the process. When asked by the Delhi High Court to look into the matter, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) rejected ADF's complaint and said that there was no merit in it. The controversy was marked by angry statements made by both parties against each other. Although ADF's complaint was rejected, Ajay Devgan claimed that pressure built up by the case resulted in "Son Of Sardaar" (2012) getting an additional 400-500 screens. When asked why his wife Kajol, who had a long history with YRF, did not attend the film premiere, Devgan said that she had not been invited and blamed it on the "pettiness of someone else".[6][7][8]
  • Real-life husband and wife Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh made a cameo appearance in the film as a couple.

    Song

  • Heer - This song was supposed to be a short track meant only for the film's background score. However, when A.R. Rahman recorded it initially, the filmmakers liked it so much that they asked him to record it as a full-length song.[9]
  • Heer - Gulzar's lines for the song's mukhda were inspired by Bulleh Shah's poem "Ranjha ranjha kardi ve main aape ranjha hoyi". He had used this Bullesh Shah line earlier in "Ranjha Ranjha" ("Raavan", 2010).[10]
  • Jiya Re - This was singer Neeti Mohan's breakthrough song. She had debuted as a playback singer earlier in the film "Fruit & Nut" (2009).[11]
  • Jiya Re - It was on the basis of this song that Amit Trivedi chose Neeti Mohan as Anushka Sharma's voice in "Bombay Velvet" (2015).[12][13]
  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan - There were plans to shoot this song in the Swiss Alps. Director Yash Chopra passed away before he could do so and his son and the film's producer Aditya Chopra decided to not shoot the song as a mark of respect to him. The song was used in the end credits of the film.[14]
  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan - This was singer Shakthisree Gopalan's debut Hindi film song.
