The actor said that the role is a tribute to his admirers.
SRK tweeted, “Most of the characters I do are the ones I create… for the first time I am going to play what has created me…I will be in my next a ‘FAN’.”
“FAN is a ‘family film’. It’s the family all of you have become for me… the one I didn’t have. I want to be as beautiful as you all. Thanx (sic),” he added.
The film has been written by Habib Faisal and the shooting will start in May, next year.
