Tweet Review: Shah Rukh Khan Is Flawless In 'Fan'
Ever since the first promo of Shah Rukh Khan’s much-talked about film ‘Fan’ was unveiled, his admirers across the world have been awaiting the film’s release. The fact that the film features King Khan in dual roles – as super-star Aryan Khanna and his creepy, obsessive look-alike in a 20-something Gaurav, the impact is expected to be huge and expectations a lot more.
While we all wondered if a fan can really have a delirious obsession for a star, most of us were convinced with the ways Gaurav adopted to express his unconditional love for him in 'Fan'.
Shah Rukh Khan's last few releases 'Dilwale', 'Happy New Year' and 'Chennai Express' may have set the cash registers ringing at the Box Office, but these film clearly failed him, making 'Fan' success a game changer for the megastar.
Will the film be as intriguing and promising as it look in the trailer? Will 'Fan' bring forth a hitherto unseen Shah Rukh Khan - both in terms of appearance and acting chops?
