According to a leading daily, "The decision was taken at a flash-meeting held at the Yashraj studios last week immediately after Yashji's chautha where Aditya Chopra met up with the film's lyricist Gulzar."
A source said, "Gulzar saab felt that the song shouldn't go to waste since it is not only the title song but also very close to Yashji's heart." Although Yashji couldn't shoot the song it was decided that the song would now be used along with the end titles of the film. "Jab Tak Hai Jaan is being packaged as a befitting send-off to Yashji."
Jab Tak Hai Jaan stars Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The movie will hit the screens on 13th November.
