Shahrukh Khan’s Fan made me his fan! No romance and zero songs

My experience in one word: OH MY GOD!

Shahurkh khan starter Fan, in which he was both in and as his fan, was just mind blowing. So by far you know that I’ve soft spot for thriller movies. Produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Maneesh Sharma, it encapsulates a nail-biting story of a fan named Gaurav (Shahrukh khan) who resembles Aaryan Khana (Shahrukh khan again), who is a top actor of Bollywood. Gaurav spends his life praising him like his God but unfortunately, when he meets his superstar in real life, he realizes that he is as human as any other. The twist comes in when Gaurav can’t let go of the fact that he is of no value to Aaryan Khana. He decides on taking revenge and rest you need to buy in cinema. 2

I know many will only watch to get a glimpse of Shahrukh khan’s real life. (Hint: You won’t be disappointed) BUT if you are expecting romantic musical movie then please don’t waste your tickets. This movie has no songs, not even the one which we see in trailers and yes no heroin. I like the way Bollywood is getting all rational like Hollywood movies, with no song in the middle of dessert with next scene in Switzerland but come on, we will miss it!

Cost of production: Rs 85 cr
Print and Advertising: Rs 20 cr
Total budget of the film: Rs 105 cr

But totally worth it!

This movie is still a big win because you actually start believing that there are two characters fighting against each other, not one. It’s the storytelling that matters in the end and that is flawlessly done in Fan. Hats off to the makeup team and strong acting capabilities of Shahrukh khan.

Here are few tweets after the first show:

I realised much earlier in my career that marketing is all about sharing stories with one another and it was no secret that social media marketing will be the key to rising above the noise. Since that day, till my post-graduate studies with marketing as majors, I’ve never let go of understanding the art of making others talk on the web ‘comfortably’. I’ve made my point that instead of selling your product or service based on its features focus on telling a compelling story, as Seth Godin rightly said. By using proven methods and also adding innovative techniques to produce the result, I was able to filter out the hype and constantly evolve with technology. It sure is very challenging to stand out your business with millions of new tweets, information updates, blog posts, videos and news stories posted every day, from all around the globe. But if you won’t start now then it will get only more difficult and keep getting difficult as you hesitate more. So embrace it with joy, you’ll be surprised with the benefits of relationships, if not of the medium I,being a Social Media Specialist oversee and implement the organization’s social media activities by directly engaging with audience over various social media channels.
