The song picturises Shah Rukh Khan playing guitar and strolling across famous London landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Canary Wharf and Southbank.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan song Challa, composed by music maestro AR Rahman was released on YouTube and received nearly 320,000 views in just over 24-hours. It has received 2.5 million hits in seven days.
The song showing Shah Rukh Khan in a blue check shirt and a guitar saddling on his shoulder is reminiscent of his character Raj from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
In the song, happy-go-lucky SRK (playing character Samar Khan) is wandering across the various landmarks of London including Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Canary Wharf Station, St. Pancras Station, Portobello Road, Covent Garden, Hungerford bridge, and Southbank.
Katrina Kaif makes a brief appearance towards the second half of the song. Wearing a yellow dress and a burnt orange trench coat and boots, Katrina (playing the character Khushi) passes a happy Samar and smiles at him. Shah Rukh’s character is enchanted with Katrina’s character and the song ends there.
All the songs of Jab Tak Hai Jaan are composed by Rahman, but so far only Challa has been released.
The eagerly-awaited Yash Chopra releases worldwide on Diwali day, November 13, 2012 and also features Anushka Sharma in the lead role. Anushka, however, does not appear in Challa song.
Here are the trailer and first look of Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
