With his “Fan” anthem being released in six different languages, Shah Rukh Khan says the song is an ode to his idols Mahatma Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, Rajinikanth and Yash Chopra.
The song “Jabra Fan”, which debuted its Hindi version last week, has now been recorded in six more languages—Bengali, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Marathi, Tamil and Gujarati.
The 50-year-old actor said the whole nation and world is fan of Gandhiji besides him.
“Gandhiji, The Father of the Nation is also the worlds biggest star. The whole nation & the world is his fan!,” he tweeted along with the link of the song’s Gujarati version.
Shah Rukh, who is the proud owner of Kolkata Knight Riders and the state’s brand ambassador too, said he is an admirer of the city of joy.
“City of joy, city of KKR & the city that still has the old world charm. Kolkata, aami tomake bhalo bashi! Ur fan,” he wrote with the Bengali link of the song.
Sharing the Punjabi version, the “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” star remembered Chopra and said he is his “ethernal fan”. “Yash ji, no one has shown the purity of Punjabi culture like you did. This one’s for you. I’m your eternal fan!.”
Shah Rukh, who earlier paid tribute to Rajinikanth in “Chennai Express”, said he is proud to be a fan of the Tamil superstar. “Rajni Sir, I’m not a star, but just one of your countless fans Thalaiva @superstarrajini. Proud to be your fan!,” he wrote.
For Sachin, Shah Rukh tweeted, “Sachin: Aila @sachin_rt Umpire kuch bhi kahe, mere liye toh u wil always b not-out! I am ur Fan. Jai Maharashtra!”
“Khaike paan banaraswala, suno ab @ManojTiwariMP ke voice mein Fan ka gaana!,” Shah Rukh wrote introducing the Bhojpuri version. “Fan”, directed by Maneesh Sharma, will hit theatres on April 15.
