Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has delivered yet another success with Fan, reveals that there won't be any sequel to the film. However he is geared up to collaborate with the director of the latest release Maneesh Sharma yet again but with a different script altogether.

"(Fan had a conclusive ending) so I don't think there is any sequel to this movie,” the 50-year-old told IANS.

Fan featured Shah Rukh as Gaurav, a fan of superstar Aryan Khanna, who is also played by the superstar.

Shah Rukh says that he has associated with Maneesh for another film that will be different from Fan.

"Maneesh and I are working on another film which is not similar to Fan at all. It's a very different story and we will start working on it by next year. It will be a nice film."

While critics and audience have been praising Gaurav's character in Fan, Shah Rukh says Aryan Khanna was more difficult to play.

"I still feel Aryan is a most difficult character for me. It's close to my life as an actor and as a star. I feel that the dignity of the movie stars needed to be maintained in the film because I am playing myself in it,” he said.

"Having said that, the biggest achievement was that we could convince the people that there are two people in this film and not one person and I think that's the biggest compliment,” he added.

Shah Rukh is also planning to celebrate the success of Fan.

"Aditya Chopra (producer of Fan) has gone for Befikre to Paris and I am going to London but one day I am going to sit down with the team of Fan and celebrate. We spent long hours to make this film... so in a few days I will call for a get-together."
