Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is gearing up for his next big film Fan this weekend. The fans pinned many hopes on the film once the trailer was released. The advance bookings of the film have also been going strong in a grand manner. There is no looking back for the film now in any case but unexpectedly the sudden rumours of plagiarism allegations making the film stand in the zone of controversies which is unnecessary at this time. The reports reveal that there is a similarity between Fan and Hollywood star Robert De Niro’s The Fan.
But it is very clear from the film’s trailer that the film is all about a Bollywood superstar and his lookalike obsessed fan. In the English film, a Baseball fan stalks his favourite player. Reacting on these allegations, the lead actor Shah Rukh said he was the one who told director Maneesh Sharma to watch The Fan as a reference. “It is an extremely different film. I saw the film when I was young. In fact, I saw another film too and read some books… As a matter of fact, I told Maneesh we should watch it just as a reference. But there is no similarity. It doesn’t come close to our film,” Shah Rukh told reporters.
The film is releasing this Friday worldwide.
