Hoping to inspire the youth

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is happy that he is playing an army officer in the upcoming Jab Tak Hai Jaan and hopes it will help popularise the forces.

“I am glad that I am playing an army officer. I feel good thinking that by portraying characters from the armed forces in our films, hopefully we can popularise the profession — because our army, navy and air force is beyond the profession, it’s a dedication to your nation. This is what I feel,” the 47-year-old admits. Shah Rukh says he would be glad if even one young boy is inspired to join the armed forces after watching the film. “When I was shooting in Kashmir, many officers used to meet and say that because I am doing this, maybe the boys will get inspired. I don’t know if they will. But if I am able to do that through this film it will be really nice because it is the most honourable and noble profession to be in the armed forces,” he adds.

Shah Rukh had earlier played an army officer in Veer Zaara. Jab Tak Hai Jaan also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
