Shah Rukh Khan is one of the biggest superstars in the world, which explains his ever-expanding fan-base. Some of his admirers feature in the recently-released behind-the-scenes video of "Fan."
For the past eight years, two German ladies have been following the actor to every European country he has shot in. In SRK's words, they are not "imposing," and only love to stay around him while he goes for his takes.
He calls them his "twins" and "beautiful groupies," whose favourite film is "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge." "They are really sweet. They would have lunch with us and come everywhere I go. If I am travelling in Europe, these ladies will be there for sure. They are my beautiful groupies and I've had them for years. They plan their holidays in places where I am," Deccan Chronicle quoted SRK as saying.
Director Maneesh Sharma says the 50-year-old actor is hardly surprised to spot them on the sets because it has now become a usual occurrence. The ladies take a flight to the location SRK shoots in and check into the hotels same as his.
"They do not randomly go click crazy or anything, just stand in one corner and let the star do his job. In fact, they have become acquaintances now and Shah Rukh isn't the least bit surprised when he sees them. He just goes over and gives them a hug. They are very gentle too," the daily quoted him as saying.
If this sounds crazy, sample this: A fan once entered Mannat (SRK's palatial bungalow in Mumbai) and took a dip into his swimming pool. On being questioned by the security guards, the gentleman said he just wanted to take a bath in the star's pool adding he wasn't looking for a photo-op with the actor.
