Even after ‘Fan’, SRK doesn’t understand how people love him so much

Shah Rukh Khan said: "Before I could become a fan, I became a star. I still don't understand how people love me so much... care for me and their mothers and children and families (also shower affections). It is quite a responsibility for me sometimes."

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says shooting for his forthcoming film ‘Fan’ has been a difficult journey as an actor, but says he still doesn’t have any clarity on how people love him so much.

“Before I could become a fan, I became a star. I still don’t understand how people love me so much… care for me and their mothers and children and families (also shower affections). It is quite a responsibility for me sometimes…,” Shah Rukh Khan noted.

In Maneesh Sharma’s ‘Fan’, slated to release on April 15, SRK essays a fan obsessed with a reigning superstar who looks just like him, and travels to Mumbai to meet the actor. (Shah Rukh Khan disappointed with Dilwale box office collections in India)

Quizzed on how he juggled playing the role of an obsessed fan, Shah Rukh Khan said it felt ‘quite schizophrenic’ to do that. “One has to maintain a dignity of what a fan is. That part I have kept in mind. It’s been a difficult journey as an actor… quite schizophrenic … quite dichotomous.”

The ‘Dilwale’ star revealed his take on stardom and clarified that he is not a fan of himself. (Dilwale movie review)

“Not at all… I am amazed that I should have become a star. My general belief is people who become actors are people who do not love themselves. They just want to be a different person every morning. People who love themselves become extremely fantastic stars. So, I am not a big fan of myself,” he added.

The 50-year-old actor was in the city on Monday to launch Nerolac Paints’ coffee table book ‘Shades of Bengal’.

        to all SRK haters: What do you have to say about the Hindu intellectuals and writers who actually started the "Intolerance" issue while protesting against the killings of writers by right wing fanatics? Will you call these hindu intellectuals as anti-nationals? will you ask them to go to stan? stop ur blind hate campaign man. clean ur mind.

              SImple, SRK. They are s. Who else could be a fan of yours? Even today you, a middle aged man, can play a college student and your s fans will come out to watch the movie? They have no sense whatsoever.

                                      Hey piglet vanara sena is from here, it is you pigs who have sought shelter in our motherland. Why? Because in your Arabian sand you guys cannot tolerate each other and the proof of it is still evident. Still piglets are crossing oceans to look for green pastures that they never worked for.

                                        The Underworld loves you, only, to make their black to white and to show PIG supremacy. But as they say "Wash a PIG as much as you want it goes right back to the dirt". Your dirt filled stack is just nearby.
