"#FanTheFilm banaya, bada mazaa aaya."
The first teaser trailer was released for Shahrukh Khan’s new film, Fan, on July 9, 2015.
Fan is produced by Yash Raj Films, and directed by Maneesh Sharma. It is set to be released on April 15, 2016.
Interestingly, in Fan, it seems Khan will be acting in a double role, as he plays both himself, and also his biggest fan in the world.
The film will centre on Khan’s life and his relationship with his fans.
It promises to be a thank you to all his supporters, and to show how Khan’s fame is down to the constant following he has been lucky enough to find over his two decade career.
