Recently we reported an odd turn of events where the bordering walls of “Don” actor’s four storey home were covered with graffiti messages that read ‘love you SRK’, ‘c u 15th’, and were signed with the name ‘Gaurav’. Naturally this caught the attention of everyone including the media, and recent buzz suggests that this was the entire point!
The graffiti was indeed an out of the box promotional stunt for SRK’s upcoming film, Fan, meant to go on the floors in April next year. “This was a unique promotional idea for the film, because sometimes this is how a fan reacts. Fans of celebrities do some crazy things and so, and since Shah Rukh plays a fan named Gaurav in the movie, this was just to give a glimpse of how crazy a fan can be,” a source close to the film’s unit, told IANS.
Yash Raj Films, which is producing the Maneesh Sharma directorial, said in a statement: “2 POWERHOUSES. 1 SPECIAL TRIBUTE. SRK IN AND AS FAN.”
The Baadshah himself took to Twitter to share the teaser of the film with his fans and followers saying, “Hey @yrf “@FanTheFilm banaya, bada mazaa aaya” #FanApril15 @iamsrk, “Hope you all enjoy the teaser of Fan.”
