Anushka Sharma's character in "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" (JTHJ) has been revealed - she plays Akira, a documentary filmmaker, in the movie and sets out to chronicle the life of superstar Shah Rukh Khan's character in it.

Akira is an employee of Discovery Channel, and she wants to make a documentary on army offcer Samar, played by Shah Rukh. The movie is the last directorial of late filmmaker Yash Chopra, who passed away earlier this month.

The audience will discover the entire story of the film through Akira's eyes.

"We are honoured to have associated with one of India's foremost film stalwarts - the late Yash Chopra," Rahul Johri, senior vice president and general manager - South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, said in a statement.

A Yash Raj Films (YRF) official is also hopeful this integration will work in favour of both - the movie as well as the channel.

"We wanted to associate with the leading non-fiction channel and we are happy to partner with the world renowned Discovery Channel. We are certain that viewers will enjoy Anushka's refreshing character as a Discovery Channel employee," said Ashish Patil, vice president, YRF.

The film, said to be a love triangle, also stars Katrina Kaif, and is slated to release this Diwali, Nov 13.

    Katrina Kaif looks stunning in the movie...but whereas talent is concerned..gotta give it to Anushka...she did a great job in her first movie.
    She does a look a bit starved in this new movie though...perhaps its just her natural body

    love you anushka..cant wait for jthj..you kat and srk will surely rock on the screen.and the @ppl who are saying that "she is the only attractive part of the film as well as saving point".oo come on..are you saying that all films of SRK and katrina are nothing...SRk and katrina movies dont include anushka all time.but all films of srk and katrina are blockbusters.so dont be rude by saying that she is the only attractive part..she is the attractive part but beside her srk and katrina are also part of it..i m excited for the movie to watch katrina with srk and anushka first time..they are all my fav so cant wait for the movie.
    SRK + kat+ anushka =picture perfect.
