Mumbai, March 1:
From panning the camera to the life of a celebrity to splashing shades of darkness with a focus on a fan’s obsession — the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan’s “Fan” didn’t just turn out to be a treat for the superstar’s real life fans, but also left stars of the tinsel town spellbound.
From Salman Khan, Karan Johar to Varun Dhawan, members of the film fraternity raved about the film, calling it ‘FAN’tastic, and saying that they can’t wait for the film to hit the screens.
After teasing the film buffs with glimpses of the film, Shah Rukh opened a new chapter from the story of the film with the trailer launch, which was held here on Monday. Sticking to the theme of the film, Shah Rukh unveiled the trailer with hordes of his fans in attendance.
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, the film has been shot in various locations in Mumbai, Croatia and Delhi.
The film will bring forward a story about a fan’s obsession towards a star, and how the admiration turns into a negative thing when the star dispels his love for him. The catch in the film is that the fan is star’s lookalike, and how he uses it for his advantage when he turns his ‘biggest enemy’.
Here’s what the stars tweeted over the film, which will make its way to the theaters in April:
