Shah Rukh Khan was seen interacting with the press at Madame Tussauds in London. His waxwork, which already has pride of place other Bollywood wax statues has been dressed now as Gaurav from ‘Fan’ in a unique promotional strategy, organised by Yash Raj Films. The world-famous London museum has re-dressed its Shah Rukh Khan figure as Gaurav, his character in ‘Fan’. The new YRF-SRK film that is releasing worldwide April 15.

The best thing about all the pictures is Shahrukh’s beautiful smile, which he is giving while posing for the camera. Very fewer people know that Shahrukh’s upcoming film, Fan has some strong connection with this place as few parts of the film has been shot there. Recently, while talking to the live mint, when Shahrukh was asked that when he said yes, was he prepared for the mental toll a film like this might take. Shahrukh said, “You’re right when you say that, but I wasn’t aware. I was aware of the physicality of it all, with the make-up and everything. Very early on, we decided there was going to be some amount of likeness, but that he can’t be a duplicate. And we had to figure out how to make him 24-25, with me being 50. So we did a couple of tests, failed miserably a couple of times, but continued and stuck to the film.We finished the film a year back-the VFX took that long-so I’ve forgotten some of the process, but yeah, it was very schizophrenic. I mean, when you’re doing a commercial double role, good-bad, it’s not exactly superficial but you can pull it off. But this is quite internalized. It’s awkward for me to watch it.”

General Manager Edward Fuller commented: “We have a long and strong relationship with the Indian film industry, and our Bollywood figures are hugely popular with guests. We’re delighted the attraction is featured in “Fan” and excited to be celebrating the release of the film by re-dressing Shah Rukh’s figure and taking it to the London Eye for his fans to see and grab a selfie!”
