    Maneesh Sharma: I expect National Award for Shah Rukh Khan after 'Fan'
    PTI | May 4, 2016, 02.04 PM IST
    Shah Rukh Khan's performance as both a Bollywood superstar and his much-younger look-alike admirer in 'Fan' deserves a National Award next year, feels film's director Maneesh Sharma.

    Shah Rukh Khan’s daredevilry

    The 50-year-old actor has received immense praise for his dual act, especially as Gaurav Chandna, whose love for his favourite star eventually turns against him. "I am actually expecting National Award for Shah Rukh for his work in the film. Let's hope he gets it. It feels great seeing the response Shah Rukh is getting for his performance. It is satisfying," Maneesh told PTI.

    "Shah Rukh is the happiest with the kind of response he is getting for his performance and the whole team is very happy as we think we have done something little alternate and getting appreciation for that is always way more assuring for any director, actor or producer."

    'Fan' was one of the most anticipated films of the year and especially for a reason that from its story to his role, the movie was unlike what Shah Rukh had done in years and fans associated him with. In terms of bringing an "alternate" film to the 'Shah Rukh Khan-loving audience' and getting praise for it, Maneesh says 'Fan' has been an extremely satisfying journey.

    "I am very satisfied in the sense that it was an alternate stuff for a Shah Rukh Khan-film and we all knew we were going for something little out of the box in terms of what is expected out of YRF-SRK combination." "Cinematically, we have done something which we are very proud of whether in terms of story-telling like not having song, dance, heroine or fulfilling any commercial expectation, which is what people associate with Shah Rukh and Yash Raj."

    "In that sense whatever response that we are getting and the benchmark that we have set with VFX that has been very satisfying." Having Shah Rukh in a film is a dream for any young filmmaker but it also comes with a lot of pressure of not disappointing his huge fan base.

    I believe Saif's mother was on the panel. That's pretty embarrassing.

    FAN will become a cult classic like dil se about 10 years down the line people will remember it and just ask how was it not a box office success like dil se. As for national award im hoping as well it was robbed from him in 2004 when saifs mum was apart of the jury i believe he should of got a national award in 1993 but lets hope it finally comes
    Rishima62 says thanks.
