Mumbai: For those who are swooning over the poetry that came along with the first look of Yash Chopra’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, there is news. The poetry has been penned by the film’s producer and screenplay writer Aditya Chopra.
While the world was attributing the lines to the film’s lyricist, Gulzar, the lines are actually penned by Adi who is known to be a closet poet.
A die hard romantic, Aditya is known to write romantic prose for perhaps his lady love Rani Mukerji. The otherwise media shy filmmaker has decided to share some of his poems via the film.
"Adi is a diehard romantic. He writes poems. But so far he has kept his writings private and not shared them with his closest friends either. These days, Adi seems to have changed a little. He has become more outgoing. Though he is fiercely protective of his privacy, he is now willing to share his thoughts with the audience," said a source to a daily.
Adi is extremely gung ho about his father’s comeback as a director and is leaving no stone unturned in making this film a super success. The director has been helped by his son to direct the romantic scenes in JTHJ. And sources add that Adi has incorporated his thoughts about love in a Shah Rukh - Katrina track in the film. Needless to say, SRK will be seen reciting some of Adi’s lines for his on screen lady love Katrina.
"Shah Rukh, in the film upholds Adi`s idea of love and it was only natural that he mouthed the filmmaker`s own lines as well," added the source.
