Want novelty? Watch ‘Fan’: SRK

New Delhi, Dec 23 (IANS) “Dilwale”, with its elements of comedy, action, romance and drama, has turned out to be a true-blue commercial Bollywood potboiler. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says the film never “pretended” to be something else, and if audiences want a novel concept, they should wait for “Fan”.

“If you’re looking for novelty, then you should watch out for ‘Fan’. It’s a different kind of film, supposed to be a niche… It’s not meant to be a blockbuster releasing ahead of Christmas,” Shah Rukh told IANS.

“Fan”, directed by Maneesh Sharma, features Shah Rukh as Gaurav, a fan of Shah Rukh Khan, the superstar.

The actor-producer believes that “films and storytelling are novel in the storytelling of it, unless you have a completely niche or offbeat subject, and you take a subject not touched upon”.

For “Dilwale”, he was clear that it was meant to be an “in-the-face” commercial entertainer. Directed by Rohit Shetty, who’s known for his stylish action and comic scenes, the movie has impressed Bollywood buffs, primarily SRK’s fans.

Starring Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Sanjay Mishra and Johnny Lever, “Dilwale”, released on Friday.

Shah Rukh says the film was clearly made within the “parameters that are clearly defined for a commercial film”.

“‘Dilwale’ is an unabashedly popular commercial film. It’s not pretending to be something else. It’s meant to be watched by everyone — it has romance, comedy, drama. I don’t even think that having Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan is a novelty factor as it’s just that we are doing a film together after a long time.

“Within that scape, if you’re looking for something, then Rohit Shetty has not had much a love-based storyline or relationship aspect in his films as he is more known for action and comedy. That will be novelty for Rohit. But if you ask me generically, no ‘Dilwale’ is not reinventing cinema. It’s a fun commercial movie.”
