A Shah Rukh Khan’s film did not hit well at the box office after a long time (immensly loong). Fan directed by Maneesh Sharma was one of its kind film where the protagonist and antagonist both was played by Shah Rukh himself.
A film that was made on the lives of millions of fans all over the world was expected to fare well at the box office with the kind of buzz it generated before its release. However, when the numbers actually came, it was evident that the film disappointed masses.
Although SRK told us before the release of the film that box office numbers don’t hold any importance in his life, but the failure of a film certainly does. The actor expressed his feelings in an interview with a leading daily and this is what he has to say:
“Yes, losing can become very personal. I deal with it by genuinely closing up and becoming very quiet, and spending a lot of time with myself and my kids. But then, sometimes, I also get scared, because I don’t want to transfer that sadness to them; they can sense it. But my sadness is never a result of my failure at the box office.
