Fan -- An Indian superstar becomes an unhealthy obsession for a Delhi-based fan.
Fan -- The story of Gaurav, a young man whose world revolves around the mega movie star Aryan Khanna, or God as he refers to him. From the by lanes of Delhi, young Gaurav embarks on a journey to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in order to wish his God on his birthday. After all, he is Aryan's biggest FAN and even has a striking resemblance to him -- how difficult could it be for the world biggest FAN to get an audience with the world's biggest Star. When things don't go according to plan, Gaurav's love and passion for his God turns in to a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line.

Factual errors: When Guarav visits Kings Cross Station he is shown showing his passport and boarding a train to Croatia. There is no border control at Kings Cross as none of the trains at that station travel outside of the UK, and trains from that station only travel north along the eastern coast of England and Scotland. There are also no trains that go directly from London to Croatia, with the furthest direct train into Europe being from St Pancras to Paris.See more »

Why does Shah Rukh Khan play Aryan Khanna and not himself?

For every person who is a fan of someone., 15 April 2016
Author: Sultan Bhaijaan from India

First of all,I must say the movie is outstanding in all aspects.Though I am not a fan of this actor but I should say that he has done a very nice acting in both the roles of Aryan Khanna and Gaurav Chandana. Specially, the role of gaurav chandana as a fan is fabulous. The story is unique in a Bollywood and well scripted too. The screenplay is very well maintained and full of excitement. The only thing I wonder about is that it has very comical scenes in a first half and some darker side and intense scenes full of emotions in a second half. Although it is a good combination and actor well maintained the balance between two roles. I have not seen such a great acting in any of his past movies like dilwale, happy new year and chennai express. But this time, he has done exceptionally well and may be best performance of his life. I would not tell you whole story here. You just go and watch the movie.It is not only for shahrukh khan fans. Everyone of us is a fan of someone.
