Shah Rukh Khan would be playing a double-role in an upcoming comedy film Fan, where he would play the characters of a successful film actor as well as commoner. The film also stars model Waluscha D’Souza, who makes her Bollwyood debut, as well as Shriya Pilgoanker (Daughter of Actress Supriya Pilgoanker).
Waluscha was a supermodel who took a break from her career since the past years post her marriage to model Marc Robinson, and is currently separated from him.
The film was supposed to be completed and released this year in August, but Shah Rukh’s upcoming projects Raaes and Dilwale have delayed its shooting. It’s being made under the latest VFX technology and this also contributed to the slow shooting schedules.
Fan is the story of two lookalikes, and Shah Rukh had also played such roles in films like Om Shanthi Om and Duplicate. It’s being directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra under the Yash Raj films banner.
