Shah Rukh Khan to play a 17-year-old boy in ‘Fan’
Shah Rukh Khan’s next venture Fan has already become the talk of the town. The latest buzz about the film is that King Khan will be not only be playing a megastar but also a 17-year-old fan
Shah Rukh spoke to reporters about this role at the sets of India Poochega – Sabse Shaana Kaun. “The film (Fan) is very different. I will be playing 17 years old and I’ll take some help to do it. Perhaps with prosthetics, make-up or VFX”
The actor is paired opposite 35-year-old fomer super model Waluscha De Sousa in this film. Shah Rukh, who has romanced actresses half his age on screen, spoke about the casting. ‘Yes, Waluscha is in the film. More than age-appropriate heroines, its normally character-appropriate casting. What you actually have to understand is mostly for films that are not driven by commercial aspect, they are character-appropriate casting.”
The release of ‘Fan’ which was scheduled for August 15, Independence Day, has been postponed. Yash Raj Films has attributed the delay to ‘never before seen VFX’.
