'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is beyond numbers: Shah Rukh
Shah Rukh Khan says 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is more about feelings and emotions, than box office economics.
New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says his forthcoming film 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', Yash Chopra's last directorial venture, is more about feeling and emotions, than box office economics.
"My belief is never on counting. For me, numbers are limits. Also, after the demise of Yashji, I can't relate the film with numbers. The film is more about feeling than any other thing and I think people will like it. It will be beyond numbers," the 47-year-old told reporters when asked if the movie will join the Rs 100 crore club.
Yash Chopra died on October 21.
"When he (Chopra) used to say on the sets that this is his last film, I never took it seriously, nobody of us did that actually. I used to think, I can always convince him to do another one. But his death came as a shock and this is the reason why the film is no longer just a film for me," said Shah Rukh.
Also starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' will be released on November 12.
Khan is considered the 'king of romance' in Bollywood, but unlike many who believe that romancing on screen is about chemistry, the superstar says it is all about comfort.
The 47-year-old, who has delivered hit romantic movies with actresses like Kajol, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor, says romance is more than just songs.
"Romance is not just about songs. Comfort is needed when you do romantic films. For me it's not about chemistry, it's about comfort. It's really difficult to look into a girl's eyes and say 'I love you' and then say the same thing to another girl," Shah Rukh said at a press conference here Sunday.
"When you get a chance to romance such beautiful girls, then work becomes easy," he added.
