Shahrukh Khan’s performance as both a Bollywood superstar and his admirer in Fan was applauded by critics and fans. Now the film’s director Maneesh Sharma feels that SRK deserves a National Award next year.

“I am actually expecting National Award for Shah Rukh for his work in the film. Let’s hope he gets it. It feels great seeing the response Shah Rukh is getting for his performance. It is satisfying,” Maneesh told PTI.

“Shah Rukh is the happiest with the kind of response he is getting for his performance and the whole team is very happy as we think we have done something little alternate and getting appreciation for that is always way more assuring for any director, actor or producer.”

‘Fan’ was one of the most anticipated films of the year and especially for a reason that from its story to his role, the movie was unlike what Shah Rukh had done in years and fans associated him with.

“I am very satisfied in the sense that it was an alternate stuff for a Shah Rukh Khan film and we all knew we were going for something little out of the box in terms of what is expected out of YRF-SRK combination.

“Cinematically, we have done something which we are very proud of whether in terms of story-telling like not having song, dance, heroine or fulfilling any commercial expectation, which is what people associate with Shah Rukh and Yash Raj.

“In that sense whatever response that we are getting and the benchmark that we have set with VFX that has been very satisfying.”

“Honestly, every time you make a film it is a risk. Filmmaking is a risky thing. Making ‘Fan’ did not weigh me down in terms of having Shah Rukh Khan on board… Any film comes with that amount of risk.

“‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ comes with that amount of risk as you are making it with newcomers, at a certain scale, milieu… You don’t know whether it will work. You just go with your conviction and hope for the best.”

    • FAN movie does not have mass appeal. But SRK’s acting was appreciated worldwide. He nailed in both role. He deserve national award this time. By the way, most of the Oscar worthy movies were vastly rejected by audience. That does not make those films bad. kya kare, class people ki kami hai world mein.. Rahene de Tu nahi samjhega!
