The makers of “Fan”, starring Shah Rukh Khan, released the first, and apparently only, song of the film “Jabra Fan” Feb. 16. Now, SRK has released the same song in different languages. The actor has paid tribute to his superstars including Rajinikanth, Sachin Tendulkar and Yash Chopra.
SRK showed his fan-side by releasing the song, also known as the “Fan Anthem,” in six languages —Marathi, Tamil, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi and Bhojpuri. In the song, Gaurav Chandana (played by SRK) is seen dancing his heart out.
Composed by Vishal-Shekhar and sung by Nakash Aziz in hindi, the “Fan Anthem” is essentially a tribute to fans across the world. Scheduled to be released on April 15, “Fan” is directed by Maneesh Sharma.
The makers have released the only song of the film before the trailer as promotion for the movie and also to introduce Gaurav and his madness for superstar Aryan Khanna. Similarly, SRK has released the song in different languages to show his madness for his stars.
