Just a month ago, Shah Rukh Khan had appealed his fans who did not like his last movie Dilwale, to look out for his next film FAN. That’s where he will be seen in an innovative role. But fans weren’t too excited about FAN except the very different avatar of Shah Rukh Khan as the ultimate movie star fan. SRK plays both the superstar Aryan Khanna and the devoted fanatic Gaurav Chanana in the Maneesh Sharma-directed movie FAN. So, the story seemed a bit predictable. But trust Khan to surprise you, like he has in movies like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Chak De! India and Swades. DNA reports that the story of FAN has been leaked, and that it’s anything but predictable!
The daily quotes a source from Bollywood saying that “Fan is not just about the love of the fan for his favourite superstar. In the film, eventually Gaurav and Aryan are pitted against each other and it’s the superstar who plays the nemesis to the fan.”
Wow! That means that Shah Rukh Khan plays both the underdog protagonist and the villain in FAN! Now, that’s a first. Maybe he should’ve done that in his movie RA.One as well, where he plays G.One the robot and RA.One the nemesis is essayed by Arjun Rampal.
Shah Rukh Khan himself revealed about FAN, “Gaurav is 25 years old in the film and it’s not because I want to play or look like a 25-year-old in my film. It’s a story about a 25-year-old fan and a 45-year-old superstar. The character of Aryan Khanna has still not been introduced so when we reveal his look, the difference should be evident. When the comparison will come to the fore, it will look really beautiful, Inshallah!”
So, get set for a fight between Gaurav and Aryan – both Shah Rukh Khan – in FAN! Whose side will you be on? FAN releases on April 15, 2016. Now, all we can do is wait for the look of Aryan the superstar to be revealed. (ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan to work with Vishal Bhardwaj)
