Yash Raj Films’ ground-breaking new film starring SRK is making a mark in multiple ways. Apart from its innovative VFX and intriguing storyline, FAN has become the first film from India to be shot in Croatia.
Even more special is the fact that within Croatia, a picturesque, tiny nation in the heart of Europe, FAN has filmed high octane, adrenaline pumping action sequences in the historic Dubrovnik City. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik is also famous as the site for filming the global cult TV show, Game of Thrones. It’s aquamarine, breathtaking waterfront was also exposed to the world in the TV series, DIG.
With unique terrain and untouched architecture, the quaint Dubrovnik City has witnessed it’s first Indian film crew, thus opening up new horizons. In fact SRK has even tweeted a chase sequence which was shot there!
Both YRF and SRK films have a legacy of opening up new territories and terrain for the grand, lavish Indian film industry. With Croatia, a new space has been explored for Bollywood, and on celluloid, these world class action sequences promise more excitement.
In a world of labels it’s easy to forget who made sportsmen, pop singers and matinee idols into stars, superstars and megastars – the FANS. Every FAN has their own personal relationship with their hero – it’s almost a Love Story.
FAN is the story of Gaurav (Shah Rukh Khan) a young man, 20 something, whose world revolves around the mega movie star Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan) or God as he refers to him.
From the by lanes of Delhi, young Gaurav embarks on a journey to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in order to wish his God on his birthday. After all, he is Aryan’s biggest FAN and even has a striking resemblance to him – how difficult could it be for the world biggest FAN to get an audience with the world’s biggest Star.
When things don’t go according to plan, Gaurav’s love and passion for his God turns in to a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line.
In an edge of the seat thriller, FAN will peel away at both Gaurav and Aryan’s personalities and characters as the two men discover people within themselves that even they didn’t know existed, and we’re left wondering who to sympathize with and whom to root for – can we really pick a side, after all, Superstars are also human beings but each one of us is also a FAN.

Yash Raj Films has announced the release date of their upcoming film starring Shah Rukh Khan. The film, which was partially filmed in the United Kingdom earlier this year, will be releasing in UK cinemas and worldwide on 15th April 2015.
Fan is directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra.
The UK schedule of Yash Raj Films’ FAN kicked off in Oxford, England yesterday. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan filmed scenes for the movie at Blenheim Palace with a crew of 300 people including several extras from the UK.
Blenheim Palace and its stunning gardens and parkland have been used as a location for many exciting feature films and television documentaries over the years.
Acclaimed film-maker and Visit Britain brand ambassador Karan Johar also shot with Khan at Blenheim Palace for UK blockbuster Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham almost fifteen-years ago.
According the The Oxford Times, various scenes were shot around the palace. One such scene featured a red carpet rolled out in the main courtyard.
BollyNewsUK can confirm that Shah Rukh Khan is now filming for FAN in London.
FAN is directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra. The film is set to release in UK cinemas later this year through Yash Raj Films.
Yash Raj Films’ highly anticipated next, FAN starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan will commence principal filming in the United Kingdom this month.
FAN is directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films. The film has been written by Habib Faisal and already had filming schedules in India, primarily at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai.
Khan has previously filmed blockbusters Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and most recently Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan in the English capital.
Shah Rukh Khan’s FAN will also have a short schedule in Croatia this month after which the London schedule will begin. The production house has not confirmed a release date for the film yet.
Shahrukh Khan, the man unarguably with one of the greatest fan following globally, will now play the role of being the biggest fan himself in the forthcoming YRF movie, FAN. The film begins shooting July 2014 and the actor has begun work on the film.
The renowned special effects makeup maestro, Greg Cannom, who started work on developing Shahrukh’s look for the film, spent considerable time at the Studio recently with the actor, Director, Maneesh Sharma and Producer, Aditya Chopra.
Greg, who really doesn’t need an introduction, has been nominated for nine Academy Awards and has won an Oscar three times for the memorable looks he created in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and Dracula (1992), apart from several other prestigious awards. In 2005, along with Wesley Wofford, he received a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy for the development of special modified silicone material used for makeup applications in motion pictures.
Speaking about the look, Maneesh said, “We are attempting a never-seen before look for Shahrukh which will be both challenging for us and exciting for the viewer. Understandably, this will be kept under wraps till the first look of the film is revealed.”
Directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra, FAN has been written by Habib Faisal, and goes on floor mid-2014.
The film releases in UK cinemas and worldwide on 14th August 2015.
