Yash Chopra or Maneesh Sharma: Whose 'Fan' Is It Anyway?

By 16:53:00

On the one hand while Shah Rukh Khan is crediting veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra for the concept of his upcoming thriller Fan, the film's director Maneesh Sharma shares a different version about the origin of the film.

On a popular TV show Khan said, ''Very few people know that the concept of Fan was first narrated to me by Yashji about 10 years ago. While I was excited to explore the idea back then, for some reason it never happened.'' He added, ''Today, I'm glad we could bring his idea to life.''

Meanwhile, Sharma indicated that the idea of the film germinated when he visited Baadshah's Bandra house 12 years back and saw the frenzied atmosphere outside his house. He said that he always wanted to make the film a thriller, but it never took off until Habib Faisal came on board as the writer.

Produced by Yash Raj Films', the film releases on April 15.
