Comparisons are being made to films like ‘Darr’ and ‘Baazigar’, which kick-started Shah Rukh’s career in the industry and made him the superstar that he is today.
Milap Zaveri: The Fan trailer is simply FANtastic! This is the Shah Rukh Khan, I grew up being the biggest fan off! Baazigar Darr.
Sidharth Malhotra: Yes (I’ve watched the Fan Trailer) and it looks super thrilling and interesting, eager to watch it
Ronit Roy: Fan looking so good. I saw the same hunger in the fans eyes I saw in Baazigar. Next SRK level is on. Love you.
Sujoy Ghosh: This FAN trailer is kickum assum!! no one does menace like SRK.
Sushant Singh Rajput: As a fan of SRK I have never been a bigger FAN. What a fabulous trailer..
Nikhil Advani: Now here’s the SRK that we grew up worshipping. DARR revisited.
Emraan Hashmi: Loved the Fan Trailer!! Great work Shah Rukh Khan!! Waiting for the movie now.
Varun Dhawan: Wow Shah Rukh sir you have raised the bar yet again. Brilliant YRF and Maneesh Sharma your the man.
Karan Johar: So this is the trailer of the decade! #Fan… Shah Rukh Khan is unbelievable and pure genius!
However, since the industry is known to over-exaggerate and praise even the most mediocre of movies and trailers, what truly matters at the end of the date is the response from the trade and more importantly, the audience.
Thankfully, the response has been terrific so far. The trade is in a celebratory mood as the trailer of FAN has not only impressed, but also surprised. Industry insiders always knew that the film was going to be ‘Darr’ like, but action sequences in the film along with the popularity of the ‘Jabra’ song released in various languages, has significantly increased the reach and mass-appeal of the film.
