On his 50th birthday on Monday, the Bollywood superstar was “humbled” by the love that his fans showered on him. And SRK’s return gift for his fans? He reached out to them with a glimpse into his upcoming movie Fan, a Yash Raj Films (YRF) production. “Today as I turn 50, I turn 25 again - for all the years of love you hav given me, I give u my most heartfelt creation. Gaurav the FAN.U and I are a belief,” he tweeted. The film, directed by Maneesh Sharma, stars SRK as a fan.
The first teaser of Fan was launched earlier this year, but on his birthday, SRK released the second teaser -- a much-longer version -- for his fans. And the new teaser shows that the movie can’t be described any better. It’s about Gaurav, a commoner, who’s in awe of superstar Aryan Khanna -- much like several Bollywood buffs who worship cine stars like a god -- in India, which is one of the leading producers of films in the world.
It was a scene right out of Om Shanti Om - SRK stood in a balcony of his house Mannat in Mumbai, blew kisses to his fans, waved at them, smiled at them and there was a gleam in his eyes. The flash of the cameras went clickety-click, as seen in a video that the king Khan posted on his Facebook page. There was a loud cheer and whistles from the crowd that filled the street outside Shah Rukh Khan’s house, Mannat, in Bandra (Mumbai). Even before the clock struck 12, fans had begun gathering outside, and the attention made Shah Rukh be grateful for the love that his audience has showered on him since over two decades of his Bollywood career.
It’s this love that keeps him going. “Right now so humbled by the attention and love being given to my birthday. Didn’t ever realise living will be so beautiful. Thanks all,” Shah Rukh shared on social media platforms.

At night, he even cut a cake with his family members -- wife Gauri, sons Aryan and AbRam and daughter Suhana. “Happy birthday Shah Rukh... it’s just us tonight,” Gauri posted with a photograph on Facebook. The actor is seen cutting a cake with white frosting.
Only a few hours after releasing the teaser and since bringing in his birthday, SRK shared: “It’s been a few hours and I have received such unconditional love and wishes for my smile, I think it’s time I find new reasons to smile from today.”

The actor, who has featured in a melange of action, romantic, dramatic and comedy roles through his career, is one of the most successful actors in Hindi cinema. His fan following is global, and his charm, unmatched.
With films like Baazigar, Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil To Pagal Hai, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dil Se.., Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Swades, Kal Ho Naa Ho and My Name Is Khan -- he has won his fans over and over again. The saga will continue with Dilwale and Fan. So, as he says in Om Shanti Om, “Picture abhi baaki hai”.
