"I wish Yashji (Yash Chopra) had seen the film, he would have really liked it... he would have been really happy to see 'Fan'. We miss him," Shah Rukh told media.

The actor also said that Yash Chopra never narrated him the film's idea.

"Maneesh Sharma (director of 'Fan') narrated me the idea of 'Fan' and they (media) thought Yash Chopra. Maneesh narrated me the idea 13 years ago, Yashji was not aware about it," he said.

SRK had starred in Yash Chopra's last directorial venture 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.

The much-anticipated movie 'Fan' will feature Shah Rukh in a double role, a superstar and his look-alike fan.

For the 50-year-old actor, playing a superstar and an obsessive fan was physically draining. Shah Rukh is hopeful that the audience will enjoy the film.

"There are no songs in the film, except one. It's a pure experience of story telling... it's a new way," he said.

Produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films, 'Fan' was mostly shot in Delhi. In the film, the lookalike - Gaurav – of the superstar is a Delhi boy.
