Yash Raj Films latest venture "Fan," which released on April 15, has met with rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. The movie stars Shahrukh Khan in a dual role"as superstar Aryan Khanna and as Gaurav, Khanna's self-acclaimed biggest fan who also looks freakishly like him. The movie explores the dangerous results of fawning and worshipping a celebrity and how the obsessions take over a person, in this case, Gaurav.
While hopefully not as delusional as Gaurav, several of us know what it's like to be in love with and be a fan of someone like Shahrukh Khan. It is easy because he makes it that way. Khan has a charming personality off-screen and immense talent when he is on-screen.
We made a list of 10 movies, as tough as it was to pick so few, where he rightfully earned the superhero title and won all of our hearts.
Of course, this movie tops the list. It was his brilliant performance
as the charming, sweet, flirtatious Raj Malhotra which proved to be a
game-changer for him. As an actor, he was known more for being the
villain and less as the romantic lead. However, his legendary pairing
with Kajol, one-liners like palat,' and bade bade deshon main aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai,'
which remain epic even today, wonderful locations and delightful songs,
along with the main essence of the film"how the guy fought against
everything to get his girl"transformed him into the hero overnight.
With this movie, Khan once again broke all norms and changed the
perception of being Bollywood's chocolate boy. In his role as the coach
of the Indian Women's Hockey team, Khan brought depth and soul to this
character that no one ever could. His delivery of tough dialogues, rare
but warm smiles and facial expressions did the trick. The film's appeal
lay in the emotional, patriotic journey that the coach and players of
the team went through and took us, the viewers, along with it. Having
SRK delivering one of his best performances was just a really great
In this beautiful Ashutosh Gowariker movie, Khan played NASA
scientist Mohan Bhargava who travels to India to bring his caretaker
Kaveri amma back to the U.S. with him. He is met with several surprises
when he learns she has moved to a village with his childhood friend Gita
and her brother Chikku. In the village, not only does he fall for the
righteous, hard-working Gita but also falls for the simplicity of life.
He struggles to decipher how the villagers live with poverty, caste
distinction, and politics. SRK delivered a very moving, very real
performance that struck all the right chords with "Swades."
Khan's journey to stardom started with him being known for his
negative roles. Obviously, "Darr" tops that list. In the psychological
thriller, he plays an obsessed lover named Rahul and will go to
unprecedented levels to get the woman he wants, his college classmate
Kiran (Juhi Chawla) who is engaged to his father's employee Sunil (Sunny
Deal). On one hand, he pursues her by stalking her and on the other, he
pretends to be a family friend to get close to his love!' Khan's
portrayal of a deranged psycho not only showed off his acting prowess
and made this film a thrilling ride, but it also gave us the epic,
unforgettable dialogue, I love you kkk-kiran.'
This one is definitely one of his most emotional, heart-warming
movies and for very good reason. He plays do-gooder Aman Verma, who
moves to New York with his mother and befriends his neighbors Naina
(Preity Zinta), her mother Jennifer (Jaya Bachchan), and her college
friend Rohit (Saif Ali Khan). As much as he loves Naina, due to his
fatal cardiac disease, he cannot let her know and decides that he will
do everything to bring her and Rohit together. This movie has some
powerful dialogues and sentimental moments, but it is Khan's very
visceral display of emotions which leaves the audience gutted.
Set in San Francisco, this movie tackles the issues of terrorism,
racism, Islamophobia, and diseases like Asperger's syndrome. Add a hint
of the famous SRK-Kajol-Karan Johar trifecta and you have a successful
Bollywood movie on your hands. Khan plays Rizwan, a very good-natured
man who moves to the U.S. to live and work with his brother after their
mother dies and that's when his brother's wife diagnoses him with
Asperger's syndrome. Through work, he also meets and falls for Mandira, a
Hindu woman who runs a salon and has a kid from a previous marriage,
Sameer. They are blissfully married until the 9/11 attacks, following
which they fall victim to racism. The story takes dark turns from her
and Rizwan sets on a mission to inform the President that his name is
Khan, and he is not a terrorist.' The movie hits on some hard experience
several immigrants, especially Muslims, must have faced here post the
attacks. Khan's acting reached a benchmark in his career with this
film"it was complex, layered, and full of heart.
The third Hindi version of the Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novel,
this one saw Khan play the role of the suffering, heartbroken alcoholic
Devdas. After returning from England, he rekindles his relationship with
his childhood friend Paro (Aishwarya Rai) and they wish to be married.
However, Devdas' mother forbids this due to Paro's lower class status.
Her family, to prove that she deserves better, marry her off to a
wealthy but older man. This drives a depressed Devdas to alcoholism and
into a brothel, where he meets Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit), who also
falls for him. Eventually, and sadly, his vices take control of his
life. A tough role to live up to, Khan actually played the character
with great depth and ease. His dialogue delivery, quivering voice and
movements, and obvious emotions made this a great film for him.
Khan mastered another remake when he took to play one of Amitabh
Bachchan's greatest roles for contemporary cinema. In the Farhan Akhtar
directed movie, Khan played the super-cool gangster Don, and also a
simpleton from Mumbai named Vijay, and he also plays Vijay playing Don!
Khan has really mastered the art of playing double roles, so this one is
no different. He is very nuanced and flexible while pulling off both
the personas. In the sequel, he pulls off being the bad guy with even
more ease than he did in the first one. Something about a negative
Shahrukh Khan character is very appealing!
One of Khan's first films, this one is special not only for its
cloying storyline or realistic characters but also because it was one of
our first glimpses into the romantic hero that Khan would grow into
being. His performance as the sweet, beloved, but non-serious hero
Sunil was applauded by everyone. In fact, Khan has stated several times
that this is one of the best films he has done. It was the first time a
hero was shown as a loser' - he didn't get the girl, he didn't get the
job, but in the end, he lived the best life he could.
This star-studded emotional drama rocked the box office when it
released because it looked at infidelity in Indian marriages like no
other film ever had. However, Khan still delivered one of his best
performances in this movie because it was role unlike anything he has
ever done before, especially in a Karan Johar film. He wasn't a die-hard
romantic who was singing several songs with his beloved. He was bitter,
angry, sarcastic and trapped in a marriage he didn't believe in
anymore. With actors like Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Amitabh Bachchan
and Abhishek Bachchan in his corner, Khan still managed to shine

Like every movie of SRK's I am always highly excited, for me it is not just a movie release , it's a festive a celebration. Fan was no less but this being a dedication to all his loving ones all over the Universe I was super thrilled to witness myself ,feel myself on-screen along with my childhood love,dream my most favorite Man - SHAH RUKH KHAN
I would never give rating to this movie because this is what we all live - dreaming of him, want to meet/see SRK esp on his Birthday ,get a hug,kiss him..so no ratings can justify all these feelings..
Coming to movie or rather moments we all SRK'ians live in every moment - This one is SRK's most FANtastic Finest performance after long. It is a trump card a Triumph.A performance that I /we all will cherish for ages and it goes in the history of Indian Cinema for being one of the captivating movies ever made with a sincere,grasping performance. SRK has played all his strengths in it.
Gaurav's intelligence in seeking revenge will put you at edge of the seat.It is a roller coaster thriller ride. The end will move your soul - esp. when Aryan Khanna searches Gaurav in crowd again on his B'day outside Mannat. That peace and smile on Gaurav's face will surely get tears in ones eyes and yes I did cry. The movie makes u understand at points that Stars are also human being at the end and they do follow a journey like any ordinary human beings - bas fark itana hain ki woh STAR hain aur hum FAN...

From playing SRK's son in Ra.One, to growing into quite a handsome boy, time has been good to Armaan Verma.
1) Well, the hair has been chopped off. If only, he's gone cuter!
2) When most of us struggle with the perils of puberty and the resultant awkward teenage, this guy was just killing it with his fabulous hair!
3) Here's an older picture of him with his beloved Nanu. Does the chemistry look similar?
4) Some things time can't change.
5) When asked how people reacted to his haircut, this is what he had to say!
Armaan, we cannot wait to see you on the big screens again!

Mumbai: It's a known fact that Bollywood's King Khan, Shah Rukh has one of the biggest fan followings in the world. So it was just normal for his fans to rejoice when the actor's new film hit the theatres. While SRK's fans are down with Fan' frenzy, the film's makers recently released a behind the scene footage from their Croatia schedule shoot.
The video takes us through the ups and downs and all the sweet memories that Maneesh Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan along with their film's team made in Croatia while shooting Fan'. However, it's one specific element in the video that holds our undivided attention; two German ladies and their FANtastic story.
Apparently, these two German ladies are Shah Rukh Khan's one of the biggest fans and have been following the actor on his abroad shoots for last 8 years.
"We met a set of people, these German women who come to every Shah Rukh Khan shoot that takes place abroad. They just take a flight and join SRK on his sets and now they have become acquaintances. Shah Rukh is not even surprised to see them in a hotel lobby. On spotting them, he would just go and hug them and greet them. They are very gentle," says Maneesh Sharma.
Unlike other people who often surprise Shah Rukh Khan with unwanted random pictures and videos, these two ladies are just happy to see the actor do his job.
"They are not imposing at all. They're happy to see him. They even stay in the same hotel on their own cost. They would just come to the set and not bother anyone. They'd just see him and not click him randomly. And I was told that this has been happening since last 8 years now," adds Maneesh.
These two beautiful ladies have seen almost every film of the actor. "I liked Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. He is such a warm and kind person," says SRK's fan.
When asked about these special ladies, Shah Rukh Khan smilingly says, "These ladies are like my twins. They are everywhere. It was really nice to have them in Croatia. I guess we even have them in some of the shots too. They are really sweet. They would have lunch with us. They come everywhere I go. If I am travelling in Europe, these ladies will be there for sure. They are my beautiful groupies and I've had them for years. They plan their holidays in places where I am."

"No one has offered me an international film," says King Khan, without a hint of remorse. High on the success of his latest film Fan, Shah Rukh says, "Many actors like Irrfan Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Amitabh Bachchan, Om Puri, Priyanka Chopra and now Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor are doing Hollywood films, and it's gutsy. They are all fantastic actors, they have taken that chance and it's encouraging.
"I have not got that offer and I am not ready to take that chance," he says, adding, "My films have done well internationally and I am trying to do films on par with their films here in Bollywood."
"I wish to bring the best of cinema here for our countrymen... like Ra.One, for which, in terms of technology, I spent a lot of money... We can do a film on space here. In a few years such films will be made. I have never tried it nor got that opportunity." He adds, "I would like to maintain the pride of the country like these actors have."
Control your ego
"As a star, you have to remember that you are not what you are on screen. You are not larger than life. When I stood with the Miss Indias', I was so short. They were all six feet. In Raees I walk with a swagger. I can't believe that I can be like that. You have to know that you are not that image; you are working for that image. You have to have that sanity."
He adds, "When I was a newcomer I did less work. I have to remember that I am not that character on screen yet while portraying that character I need to have that strong belief in me of being able to fulfill what it requires."
India is all about stars and their fans. "If there is no madness for stardom, there will be lack of inspiration. Many of us get inspired by our heroes like Sachin Tendulkar or Kapil Dev and others," says SRK with a smile.
"Here in India people make temples for stars... Hindi films exist because of that. The fandom is larger here and if that finishes, films will not survive. In Hollywood it's not like that. But in the South the craze is even more. But my stardom is not a luxury car or my bungalow. They are peripherals of my stardom. It is difficult to be a star," he concludes.

How you got associated with Nil Battey Sannata (NBS)?
When I was planning Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR), Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari (director) and Ajay Rai (Producer, Jar Pictures) came to me. Swara (Bhaskar) was part of the project. They said we need you as a partner in the project. I told them I'm just a director. What will I contribute? It's a great script. It needs somebody more credible than me. Then I suggested a few big names who support these kind of films. They went ahead and I went on to make TWMR. See, producing my film is a different and producing another director's film is a tough task. Even after TWMR released, I saw Ashwini and Ajay struggling hard to get a partner for the film. I was sure about the film, I knew it's an important film and an entertaining one. It has its own social relevance and has a very nicely created atmosphere which will be loved by the audience.
Do you feel jealous when you see a film like NBS being made by another director? Do you feel like you should have made it?
I'm a satisfied man. I don't struggle. I don't compete. When I say I don't compete... it doesn't mean I'm not ambitious. I'm emotionally very ambitious. I want to do well in life. I want to be known as a storyteller. But watching a good film satisfies me as much as making a film. So I'm not greedy about making films. I'm excited while making films, telling a story but I'm not greedy that I should do someone else's film also. I'm a one at a time film director. So I enjoy going through the process of making my own films. And I enjoy other director's movie a lot. So looking at Ashwiny directing NBS was as satisfying for me as it would have been satisfy while making the film myself.
You've signed Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari for your third film, Manmarziyan also. How do you see her as a director?
Yes, first Nil Battey Sannata, second became the remake in Tamil Amma Kanakku with Dhanush as a co-producer and now she's on board for Manmarziyan. She is a balanced director. She is very clear about what she's doing. Again, she's a correctly rooted person which is very important for a director. She has a certain kind of sensitive balance. She'll turn out to be one of the finest directors we have. She brings in an extra honesty to her actors which is very promising.
As a director was it a tough decision to replace Sameer Sharma in Manmarziyan with Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari?
It was a very difficult decision because Sameer is a very good friend and he is a good director, a very sensitive human being but at times there are different vibes which are working on the film... There are actors, there is a script, there is a director and we were like a family, like a team but it was unfortunate for all of us. When you're making a film nothing is more important than the story. No person is bigger than the film and we realized after shooting for a couple of days that there is something which is not in sync and if we went on like this we won't be able to extract the kind of film we want to make. And it was mutually decided, we sat, we spoke, it was a difficult call but it was done in a correct and mutual connected manner. And definitely in near future I'll do something with Sameer. I think he will come up with something else. Every film teaches you a lesson, this also taught us a lesson that at times this can happen to you but we moved on and things are on the right track now. We will start Manmarziyan by the end of July or August first week.
You saw Fan and you liked it. Do you think Shah Rukh Khan is pushing his boundaries as an actor?
He has always done that. He is the most loved actor in our country with the way he brought his ordinariness to the prime and become household name and a superstar. The best part about him is that even if you meet him after so many years of great films, so much of success, you still feel you're meeting a Delhi boy. So that's something he has been able to retain which is very big compliment. It's very tough to hold on to that innocence and that's why you see glimpses of a Delhi boy in him who wanted to make big and succeeded at it but he restored that boy in him. And that makes him move along and take the challenges, do new things and he is been doing it regularly.
You both are excellent at your work and will be soon working together. Do you think it's going to be an interesting combination for the audience?
I don't know how to put it but yeah, the story I'm working on needs him as an actor. What will happen is something else but I will work very hard. It's a very challenging script. I'm very excited about it and he is an actor who loves to accept challenges. I think it will be a great combination.
