In June 2011, Yash Raj Films released a statement announcing a new directorial venture by Yash Chopra, which would coincide with the 50th anniversary of his career in Bollywood. The producers also announced that film would release on the Diwali weekend of 2012. According to Chopra, the film was planned in early 2009, but he did not want Khan to work on any film other than his simultaneously. In an interview with The Telegraph, he said, “My film is an emotional film. It is not comedy, action, escapism … This is what we call an internal film. There are only three characters [and] their emotions, happiness, sadness.”
He also stated that the film was untitled as of that time, similar to his previous film Veer-Zaara which was named on the day of its submission to the Central Board of Film Certification. The producers had considered a variety of options but were reportedly not satisfied. Yash Chopra had later “nearly finalized” the title Jai, but retracted it afterwards. In June 2012, it was reported that Yash Raj Films had strongly considered naming the film as Yeh Kahaan Aa Gaye Hum, inspired by a popular song from Yash Chopra’s 1981 filmSilsila, though the news remained officially unconfirmed. It was confirmed on Tuesday 11th of September 2012 that the title of the movie is Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The title seems to have been inspired from a song of the same name from the 1975 hit film Sholay.
