akira rai

This is not a story of courage. It’s not a story of… miracles. It’s just a simple story of love. Undying love that a man had for a woman, unflinching love that a woman had for a man and unending faith that God had on their love. I got into this story thinking that this was my big ticket to Discovery Channel. I’m going to discover a story of courage, bravery, danger, miracles. But I ended up discovering love. Love that breaks you, but still keeps you together. Love that creates distances, but still brings you closer. Love that is true and forever. And I learned that if you have the power to love like that, then God makes sure that your love finds its way. All you have to do is just hang in there and wait. Wait for your time.

Akira Rai (Anushka Sharma) in Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012)

A day or two later, Ray arose with the rest of us in the small hours so that we could reach Agra in time to see the Taj Mahal in the roseate light of dawn. An image I shall never forget is that of Antonioni and Kurosawa accompanying him around the shrine—three of the cinema’s great masters laughing and chatting informally. Ray gave off an intense self-confidence without seeming in the slightest degree arrogant or complacent. Never sentimental, he probably agreed with the king in The Chess Players, who says that “nothing but poetry and music should bring tears to a man’s eyes.” While in Agra, he told Kurosawa about a huge tree in India that measured almost one mile in girth. Much later, Kurosawa wrote to him, reminding him of that incident and saying, “I have always felt from the first time I met you that you are the kind of man who is like a huge tree. A great tree in the woods in India.”

2. A Character You’d Love to be Best Friends With


Akira Rai (Jab Tak Hai Jaan)

I’d like to be best friends with Akira Rai from Jab Tak Hai Jaan. She’s like me in many ways. She’s a tomboy and loves to hang out around guys. That’s basically the same personality as me. She’s very energetic and talks a lot. Like me. We make a great match. <3

Love that breaks you, but still keeps you together.
Love that creates distances, but still brings you closer.
Love that is true and forever, and I learnt that if you have the power to love like that, then God makes sure that your love finds its way. All you have to do is hang in there, and wait… wait for your time.
