Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the hit Jab Tak Hai Jaan song ‘Challa’ and the toil Shahrukh Khan went through to get his hands moving on the guitar.
The video has SRK taking guitar-playing tips from the guitar expert Alex who was present on the sets during the shoot of ‘Challa’ and played the guitar right in front of SRK so that the superstar could copy the strumming movement.
Shahrukh Khan says in the video that it has been his dream to play the guitar. He is seen playing a few chords (G chord, to be precise) but the superstar admits that he flubbed with the chords.
“I think chords to maine theek nahin bajai. Aur ek baar main ek scene kar raha tha toh, suddenly Katrina (Kaif) rukk gai, boli ki “What is this? You don’t know the chords of the song?” Toh mujhe bahut sharmindagi (embarrassment) hui thhi uss baat se. Lekin mujhe sharminda hone ki aadat hai, maine phir bhi nahin seekha. Alex ko hi copy kiya”.
The video also has Katrina Kaif displaying some of her guitar-playing moves. She does manage to play the ‘Knocking on Heaven’s Door’ chords well, it seems. Shahrukh Khan is spotted watching her with envious eyes and jokes about how convincing he would look in the final video.
The superstar also admits that he thinks Katrina Kaif wasn’t convinced with his guitar playing moves in the song.
