The film which has been based on the theme of ‘People’s Man’ for which he gratifyingly said, “I didn’t become a star because of my efforts. I still ride a bicycle and at times, travel by rickshaw. It’s just that I was born in this film family, you all are responsible for my star status.” Produced by Eros International and Sohail Khan Productions, Jai Ho is dated to release on January 24, 2014.
