New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming movie ‘Fan' is miles away from the last ones he has been a part of. Be it ‘Dilwale', ‘Happy New Year' or ‘Chennai Express', SRK hasn't been able to live up to the expectations of his fans when it comes to acting.
Hopefully, he is on his way to change things with ‘Fan'. In this Maneesh Sharma directorial, Shah Rukh plays a double role - superstar Aryan Khanna and his lookalike fan Gaurav.
As is evident from the trailer of the movie, it narrates the story of a die-hard fan and his love for his favourite star. Shah Rukh has termed shooting for this movie a schizophrenic experience. While most of the people couldn't understand why SRK used such a strong term for it, we have found the reason.
The production house, Yash Raj Films, released the synopsis of the movie and it reveals that Gaurav's love for Aryan grows into an obsession in the film. While every fan of every star is waiting with bated breath to relate to the script, there is probably another side of the story which we don't know; the tale of the star who has such a crazy fan.
Here is the synopsis which YRF released on their official website:
In a world of labels it's easy to forget who made sportsmen, pop singers and matinee idols into stars, superstars and megastars – the FANS. Every FAN has their own personal relationship with their hero – it's almost a Love Story.
FAN is the story of Gaurav (Shah Rukh Khan) a young man, 20 something, whose world revolves around the mega movie star Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan) or God as he refers to him.
From the by lanes of Delhi, young Gaurav embarks on a journey to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in order to wish his God on his birthday. After all, he is Aryan's biggest FAN and even has a striking resemblance to him – how difficult could it be for the world biggest FAN to get an audience with the world's biggest Star.
When things don't go according to plan, Gaurav's love and passion for his God turns in to a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line.
In an edge of the seat thriller, FAN will peel away at both Gaurav and Aryan's personalities and characters as the two men discover people within themselves that even they didn't know existed, and we're left wondering who to sympathize with and whom to root for – can we really pick a side, after all, Superstars are also human beings but each one of us is also a FAN.
