Shah Rukh Khan is currently all set for the release of his Diwali blockbuster Happy New Year. After wrapping up with the promotions of Happy New Year, SRK will start shooting for his next venture with YRF titled Fan. The film has already got a lot of buzz since the star has a double role in the film. While the makers are trying their best to keep this film under wraps, there have been stories doing the rounds about an interesting plot of the film.
We hear, the film is based on the life of two lookalikes. One character will be superstar Shah Rukh Khan himself and the other character will be his fan. Considering that the two are similar looking, the story will have numerous instances where the two are misunderstood as each other resulting in comical situations. The makers have been experimenting on SRK’s looks for this film. Interestingly, the film’s first scene will be showcasing Shah Rukh’s extravagant birthday. The first scene will show both the characters coming face to face. Also since Shah Rukh plays himself, a replica of Mannat was created for a scene in the film.
The makers are yet to announce the leading ladies in the film but SRK recently said at an event, “There are two girls in the film. It is a film where I don’t think you need a big lady star.”
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, the film is slated to release on August 14, 2015.
