shahrukh khan in pahalgam

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was shooting for Yash Chopra's untitled directorial project in Kashmir, has wrapped up his schedule here and says he is taking back home some important things that he learnt during his short sojourn in the valley.

SRK wrote on Twitter as he bid adieu to Pahalgam: "Leaving Pahalgam. Learnt life's lesson in my forefathers land. Only beauty is not enuff, u gotta be tough too to survive. I will be, Insha Allah."

The 46-year-old, who has around 3 million followers on Twitter, has now moved to Gulmarg from Pahalgam.

"SRK flew to Gulmarg in a helicopter from Pahalgam today (Monday) to complete the rest of his shooting schedule.

"He will be holding a half-hour interaction with the press in Srinagar on Sep 6 before taking a flight out of the Valley," Nazir Bakshi, owner of Shiraz Travels that organised the shooting schedule of Yash Chopra's film in the Valley, told IANS.

SRK had a busy week-long shooting schedule in Pahalgam where he shot at picturesque locations like Aru, Betaab Valley and Baisaran.

The movie will see SRK as an army man and has actress Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma as his leading ladies. Yash Chopra's son Aditya is directing the film which is scheduled for Diwali release and will hit theatres Nov 13.

Yash Chopra, producer of some of the most admired Bollywood love triangles like "Daag", "Silsila" and "Kabhi Kabhi", which were shot in the valley, returned to his favourite locations after a gap of 37 years.

For SRK, who is doing his maiden film shoot in Kashmir, coming to the Valley of meadows and mountains has been a rewarding experience.

His grandmother belonged to Kashmir and SRK recently tweeted that during his stay in Pahalgam he managed to get 10 hours sleep after a long time and felt fresh and regenerated. In fact, he has been so relaxed that SRK switched his phone to ringing mode after keeping it on silent for years.

In the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, Kashmir was quite popular among filmmakers as a shooting location and blockbusters like "Kashmir Ki Kali", "Junglee", "Jab Jab Phool Khile" and "Mere Sanam" were shot in the Valley.

Even Hollywood movie "A Passage to India" has breathtaking shots of the valley, especially of old Srinagar city areas.

During over 22 years of separatist violence that began in early 1990s, the valley had virtually remained out of bounds for filmmakers. But now Bollywood has started returning to Kashmir, thanks to the improvement in the overall law and order situation here.
