We rarely post Guest comment as article. But here is one True Fan of Shah Rukh Khan, Mr. Kunal Anand, who has posted something special in our comment section. We believe he is not only true SRK fan, but also true fan of movies and other stars. It takes something special inside to stand like a rock with your favorite actor be it failure or success.

Yes, as Addatoday said, FAN is undoubtedly a FLOP when we consider the BO collection. A movie of 105crs budget collects 80crs after 2nd weekend and in all probability it will be in the range of 85-86crs then it must b tagged as FLOP. No denial of this fact. Here, I won't even try to give any excuse like non holiday, no songs or dance, or any other reason which generally a fan should give. Yes, as a true fan I don't have any issue to accept that SRK has tasted a BO failure after really long 11 yrs (last was paheli in 2005).
But here comes the tricky part like gaurav said asli drama to ab shuru hoga.
1. Who else has got his first BO FLOP after a huge gap of 11 yrs?
2. SRK dared to do the experimental kind of cinema and he failed BO wise just like in Swades. So does it mean Swades was a crap or bullshit. Obviously NO. FAN has been applauded, for SRK performance from every possible critic reviews. So it can be easily said that FAN is a success in terms of cinematic experiment. Atleast someone tried to do something out of the box. Remember only those people fall who dares to walk.
3. Has SRK stardom (Read career, like most brainless haters say) ended with FAN debacle??? My take did SRK vanished after swades??? No boy, SRK is not just a wonder of few movies or belongs to filmy family. A young energetic dynamic average looking guy from Delhi came in late 80s and has reached to this worldwide stardom n success due to his hard work, determination n dedication. Only he dared to play grey characters when every leafing actor was playing safe romantic charming chocolaty hero roles. SRK has every time came back n came hard whenever he faced a failure either it's BO or quality roles. This time it's a BO success which is not a difficult to achieve with a typical Bollywood masala entertainer. He can do this at any time without much effort like he did CE.
4. As a SRK fan I m immensely satisfied that after few really ordinary performances like HNY n Dilwale he showed the old srk again I'm terms of acting by his superlative portrayal of Gaurav in FAN. I m happy that he has some really quality films lined up like Raees, Anand L Rai next, Imtiaz Ali next, Aditya Chopra next, Gauri Shinde next, Don 3 n lots more.
5. To all fans, chahe kisi v actor k ho, Will Smith said a very meaningful line: "If you can't b with me in my failure then you don't deserve to b with me in my success."
So guyz always stand like a rock with your favorite actors be it failure or success. I stood with SRK in supersuccess phase, I stood with him in failure phase and I stand with him today as well tomorrow also. Proud to b a SRK FAN.
From a true FAN..
