Before we see Shah Rukh Khan in the Mahira-starrer Raees, we will see him play his own ardent admirer in Fan.
He talked about the peculiar experience at a recent promotional event, reports Indian Express.
“I won’t say it’s easy, but yes, being a superstar everyday does take you away from the real world for a long time,” SRK said. The actor, who admits to having personally been a fan of Amitabh Bachchan, along with athletes like Milkha Singh, Sunil Gavaskar and Bruce Jenner (now Cathlyn Jenner), says he didn’t draw too much from his own experience of admiring superstars.
“I would just like to thank Maneesh and his whole team. They had this wonderful understanding of what Gaurav is going to be. Fifty per cent of what you see Gaurav is a physical transformation by the VFX that has been done. And it is possible to say that 100 per cent of what Gaurav is, is Maneesh’s vision. I don’t think I have done 100 per cent of what Maneesh might had wanted because he was very clear about it so I think I may have got a lot of it right, I may still have fallen short.”
“I can take credit for a lot of characters I have played until now, but I know this for a fact if there was no guidance from Maneesh in this film, I would not have been able to do it,” he added.
