Shahrukh Khan released Fan Anthem from his movie Fan recently in Delhi. At the launch event, Shahrukh Khan revealed the names of the personalities, he was a fan of while growing up.
Talking about the same, Shahrukh Khan told a news agency, "One would be Mr. Milkha Singh. I loved stories about him, and how he used to be a champion. I used to be a big fan of his. The second would be Muhammed Ali... I was into sports, so I always liked his being little brashy and bratty, and still being so good at his sport.''
Shahrukh Khan further added, ''Then of course, all of us have grown up being Mr. Amitabh Bachchan's fans. I was one of them too. So, yes these three people... And strangely, because I was into sports, I have mostly sporting people that I was a fan of... Like Sunil Gavaskar."
Shahrukh Khan also said that he was also a fan of actor Michael J. Fox.
The 50-year-old actor also talked about Bruce Jenner "I am glad that me and my daughter both know him or her as well because I never thought my children will be introduced to Bruce Jenner in a different avatar -- kind of like 'Fan'.... like I am being introduced in a different avatar after 25 years."
Praising the director of Fan, Manish Sharma, Shahrukh Khan said, "I would like to thank Maneesh that he brought me to my roots and gave me a Delhi character to play. This film is very special to me.''
Shahrukh Khan added, ''Not just is this story special, but technologically, the visual effects and make-up that have been used in this film, I think that hasn't been used anywhere in the world. I feel for Hindi films, there will be something to look upto in terms of where we can go with visual effects and make-up.''
