Shahrukh charms jawans on NDTV's 'Jai Jawan'

The English news arm of NDTV- NDTV 24X7 in its programme Jai Jawan takes our country's best-known film stars to visit the unsung heroes of the Indian Army. In the next show, Shahrukh Khan will visit the border to bring cheer to jawans. A one hour special, the programme will air on 9 April at 6:00 pm on NDTV 24x7.

Touted as an effort to bring some joy and happiness to the hard and lonely lives of our jawans, who guard our borders in far-flung hostile regions, the show has previously taken Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherjee- from the Dras-Kargil sector to the desert of Jaisalmer- to the frontlines to meet the people who make India a safer place to live in.

Shahrukh Khan will travel meet the jawans posted at the Atari-Wagah border, says a company release.

The Atari-Wagah border near Amritsar is one sector of the Indo-Pak border that has been the centre of attention over many years. Jai Jawan travels to this popular and historic region to create history once again. After portraying many roles as an Indian Army officer, India's superstar Khan gets a taste of the real thing as he visits the jawans and soldiers of the Indian Army posted in this sector.

The show is anchored by NDTV news anchor and journalist Barkha Dutt will begin at the historic Atari-Wagah border where Dutt talks about the significance of the location and introduces Khan to the jawans, says a company release.

Khan joined the jawans in their barracks as they unwind for the day, even tried out his hand in an indoor firing range used for training commandos.

Shahrukh met 500 jawans, sang songs from his films and danced to tunes of his popular numbers. Emotions run high as jawans later listen to messages from their families back home.

While the Sikh regiment belts out a Punjabi song accompanied by a vibrant bhangra performance, Shahrukh will be swinging with the group thereby bringing the evening to an energetic end, adds the release.
