Director Maneesh Sharma who is working with Shahrukh Khan in Fan, says he was amazed with superstar’s enthusiasm and would like to imbibe it.
“With all that experience and adulation at this age, one would think of chilling out but he is enthusiastic as a 16-year-old when it comes to his work. To keep that excitement intact is what matters. I hope I can be enthusiastic like him after 10 years also to direct a film. He is the most experienced person we had on the sets. He has done it all, achieved things be it superficial, worldly, personal or professional. We know his journey, adulation and accolades,” Maneesh told to PTI.
In Fan, SRK plays a movie star named Aryan Khanna and a look-alike fan (Gaurav), who is obsessed with him.
“I wrote the film keeping Shah Rukh Khan in mind. I was clear the film will be made with Shah Rukh or else it will not happen. I was adamant to have him,” Maneesh said.
