Talking about Fan, Shahrukh Khan told PTI, "He (Gaurav) follows the star as he feels the star is from Delhi and he can also be like his idol some day. But the story is different...To capture all that was very interesting and schizophrenic. I just hope that I have turned it out just okay.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, ''I am glad that I got the opportunity to play a Delhi boy. I used to hate it when actors, who are not from Delhi, will play Delhi guys. I used to think why I have not been given the chance to play a Delhi boy as I come from there. I am very happy now. I had forgotten the accent. It's good to recapture that."
Talking about his role of superstar Aryan Khanna, SRK revealed, "He is actually very quiet unlike the flamboyance you see of me coming out on my birthday and waving at thousands of people. I don't do the same in that film. We have never shown the star at shooting. We have never shown his flamboyance. That's very different. That's itself is very internalised because that's how perhaps I am at home, very normal and regular."
