Being a superstar takes you away from the real world : SRK

WEB DESK: Bollywood mega star Shah Rukh Khan revealed in the first press meeting of his upcoming flick Fan that being a superstar takes you away from the real world for a long time.

SRK  is playing his own fan in his upcoming release directed by Maneesh Sharma.

When asked how easy or difficult was it to blend into the character of a fan on screen for his forthcoming film, he said, “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.”

He said he would thank the director and his team for having a clear vision about the character. “So, 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.

Shah Rukh Khan, who was once a  fan of many sports personalities and megastar Amitabh Bachchan during his teenage, has millions of  die hard fans of himself worldwide now who go crazy just to have a glimpse of the megastar.

He revealed that he was a fan of Milkha Singh as he loved his stories and him being a champion. SRK revealed that his father used to tell him stories about the athlete.

He also said, “Ofcourse most of us grew up being Amitabh Bachchan’s fans, and I was one of them too. And strangely since I was a sportsman myself, I was a fan of sports personalities like Sunil Gavaskar and Bruce Jenner who has now become Caitlyn Jenner.”

Also talking about his fan crazy stories, he said he has been a fan but not to the extent they have shown Gaurav in the film.

‘Fan’ will hit screens on April 15.
