New Delhi, Nov. 14 -- Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a special film for many reasons. It's Yash Chopra's last directorial canvas. SRK will likely regain his lost numero uno status in the industry. But interestingly, does the film mark an end to the infamous Khan war? The Khan triumvirate - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir- was present under one roof.
Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) posted on Twitter on November 13: "T 930 - Danced my shoes off with all the youngsters .. an amazing evening... spending time with Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Katrina and Anushka."
It's a well-known fact that Rani Mukerji called all the shots for premiere's guest list. Salman Khan had many reasons to come- he is Rani's good friend, he is the film's lead Katrina's ex and has acted in YRF production Ek Tha Tiger. Aamir Khan, too, will be seen in YRF film, Dhoom 3 and is starring with Rani in Talaash.
So the Khan war might not be over, but 'Yash Chopra' certainly overshadowed the bitterness amongst the actors.
Not just the Khans, all the leading ladies of Yash Chopra films were also present to pay tribute to the legendary filmmaker.
WHO ALL CAME
The first ones to arrive were Pam Chopra with son Uday. Shortly, they were joined by the cast - Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, and Prem Chopra and his wife, were also among the earliest guests. Bachchan parivaar- Amitabh, Jaya, Abhishek and Aishwarya- was present in full attendance. Hrithik Roshan, Susanne Roshan, Gauri Khan, Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Kajol, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Kiran Rao graced the event.
