Swiss romance continues in Jab Tak Hai Jaan?
Like his previous films, Yash Chopra’s next starring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif is headed for the Alps

Yash Chopra can be credited for single-handedly making Switzerland one of the most desired destinations for Indian tourists. Some of the filmmaker’s cult hits including Chandni, Lamhe and Darr have been shot against the pristine white mountains of the country.
No wonder that for his directorial comeback Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Chopra chose Switzerland once again as a backdrop for the Shah Rukh Khan-Katrina Kaif-Anushka Sharma romance. A source close to the production house tells us, “Yash Chopra doesn’t want to leave out his favourite destination this time, as there was no opportunity for him to showcase Switzerland in his last film Veer-Zaara.”
A song based on SRK and Katrina will be shot there and the lyrics of the track have been penned by Gulzar. Apparently, shooting at the Alps was a last-minute decision and the source adds, “Shah Rukh will fly to Switzerland from Mumbai while Katrina, who is currently shooting in Chicago, will leave from there.”
