The poem reads:
"Teri aankhon ki namkeen mastiyaanTeri hansi ki beparwa gustaakhiyaanTeri zulfon ki lehrati angdaaiyaanNahi bhoolunga mainJab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaanTera haath se haath chodnaTera saayon ka rukh modnaTera palat ke phir na dekhnaNahin maaf karoonga mainJab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan"
Shah Rukh Khan posted two versions of his translation on Twitter. What made this act of writing even more interesting was the background picture Shah Rukh Khan posted.Shah Rukh Khan in a stubble, sitting by the hills and writing poetry- not many things can match up to this setting.
Needless to say, Shah Rukh Khan's charisma and star appeal is universal in nature and transcends the boundaries of language, race and ethnicity.
