Mumbai: Bollywood luminary Shah Rukh Khan, whose latest recover Fan has been garnering positive
response, says he took a possibility with this film as he wanted to present before a assembly something that they had never seen before.

“It’s (Fan) not a film that heartland assembly will like it. But we took a possibility meditative hopefully they (audience) will like it, though they need strain and dance. we am not unrealistic,” Shah Rukh told PTI.

The actor, 50, in his over 20 year-long career has given several blockbusters like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Chennai Express, Happy New Year, among others.

But some of his films like Swades, Chak De! India did not do good business during a box-office as compared to his other blurb films.

“My final film (Dilwale) had cars flying, there is dance and all so some-more heartland assembly sees it and non-heartland don’t see it. The suspicion is to make a film that everybody would see it,” a actor said.

The Happy New Year star appreciates filmmakers who come up with novel ideas.

“While (we) were creation Swades, we had told Ashutosh Gowariker (film director) that wish we know this film will not make many business as a other (commercial) films do. But he had a courage to make a film like Swades with a star like me,” he said.

“I consider this is what we should celebrate. When a new kind of filmmaker comes, and creates something opposite with new people as he doesn’t have entrance to others (stars), I really conclude that. we consider it is some-more appreciated when an established director, producer, star does something unusual like Fan,” he added.

The My Name Is Khan star says he chooses to do different things on shade as it excites him. “As a chairman it keeps me going as we feel we have done something different. It also enhances your approach of making
cinema. Then after 6 months we can make a blurb film.”

“(American actor) Will Smith does that, he creates a film for numbers as good one those that don’t make that much numbers. we feel many actors should try and make that,” the actor said.

According to Shah Rukh, there are dual forms of assembly – one that enjoys offbeat films while there are others who like commercial films.

“There is meditative and articulate assembly that sees world cinema and assumes a cinema should strech there soon. Then there is an assembly in a heartland of a nation which believes still in values and thoughts and party in certain way,” a Veer Zaara star said.

He knew heartland assembly wouldn’t like a film (Fan) much as it’s not a standard SRK film.

“Language is a barrier, not everybody watches English, Spanish film. So, when we make a film like this (Fan), you know a film is not going to be universal, a heartland people are not going to understand. we don’t consider anyone is hypocrite in this,” he added.

The Om Shanti Om actor isn’t sad with a fact that a surprising films do not do that many business as the commercial films do notwithstanding being appreciated.

“Filmmakers are transparent about a aim audience. You just have to trust that this film is meant for these people and release it. Beyond that if these (unusual) films do more numbers than we suspicion of a unequivocally good,” he said.

“When we make Dilwale, a try is of removing much bigger number. Like Chak De (Chak De!India) was a beautiful film though it did not have a numbers that Chennai Express had, though it can’t unman you,” Shah Rukh said.

The actor says he is saddened when both surprising and commercial films don’t make some-more money.
“It is unsatisfactory if a film doesn’t collect that numbers. The feeling of detriment is identical though from dual different point of views.”

Released on Apr 15, Maneesh Sharma destined Fan has reportedly warranted Rs 53 crore in a country.
Fan narrates a story of Gaurav, a outrageous fan of moviestar Aryan Khanna, who heads to Mumbai in sequence to wish his idol on his birthday. When things don’t go according to plan, Gaurav’s mania with Aryan crosses a line.

“When we make a film about fans, we have shown that there could be someone like this (Gaurav). The film is kind of fantasy. When we lay down and consider of a film like this its quite a imagination film like how a demeanour comparison reaches his home and uses his look… so a all illusory suspicion that ways.”

“I don’t consider there are people are like this and even if there was someone like Gaurav, he wouldn’t even know a film is about him as he is bit off. So, he would be alright. I don’t consider there was any possibility if a film would have got misfired with a audience. It’s a good intriguing story,” he added.

Shah Rukh pronounced a assembly favourite Gaurav some-more than the character of luminary Aryan Khanna in Fan as a purpose was very uninformed and different.

“We have been totally anomalous from a star (referring to himself) who is famous to have songs and dance in his films. People like opposite stuff. But if we keep creation it again and again might be they won’t like it. we consider people liked ‘Gaurav’ some-more as that was different,” SRK said.

He pronounced some fans have reached out to him after watching the film and complained about certain aspects of a thriller. “Some of a fans pronounced there should have been songs in the film, there should have been an reparation once, because is Aryan Khanna so mean, we are not like that in genuine life, why Gaurav had this kind of end, Gaurav was not wrong.”

“There are some complaints (referring to Fan), there are some flaws that people are observant there will be critical acclaim. But altogether it’s a opposite story telling,” he said.

According to SRK if a film starts contention afterwards it means it is interesting.

“When we plead a film later, it means it has left an impact on you. Some people pronounced a second half is not good. But this is how we felt a story (of Fan) should have been and narrated it that way,” he added.
