When a Superstar turns into a Fan

He has played his superstar persona several times over. Playing himself in Luck By Chance, he had words of wisdom for an emerging star. In Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express, he did not shy away from taking a dig at starry antics. Shah Rukh Khan will shed his superstar image in his next outing with Yashraj Films — Maneesh Sharma-directed Fan — where he will essay the role of a fan. "Most of the characters I do are the ones I create. For the first time, I am going to play what has created me," the actor stated in an official announcement.

The news of Sharma, a self-confessed fan of the star, taking the script to the actor a few months ago has been doing the rounds. Sharma, who was an assistant director when he first met Khan on the sets of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, had long nourished the dream of working with the actor. However, contrary to speculations of Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment taking up the film, Fan will be produced by Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films. Written by Habib Faisal, the film will go on floors in May 2014.
