Yash Chopra's last directorial work 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is set for a grand premiere as a tribute to the late filmmaker. The film releases this Diwali, November 13. The premiere will be held Nov 12, a day before the film's release, said a statement from Yash Raj films.

"I want to give my husband an unforgettable farewell. Accordingly, we have decided to have a grand premiere for his ultimate film 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', exactly the way he wanted it," Yash Chopra's wife Pam Chopra was quoted as saying.

"This is a fitting tribute to a man who would have had it no other way. I have asked my sons Aditya and Uday to go ahead with all the preparations. This premiere is our way of celebrating his illustrious life, rather than mourning it," she added.

The film features Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Yash Chopra passed away Oct 21 following multiple organ failure. The 80-year-old was suffering from dengue.
