Shah Rukh Khan admits that films and celebrities can impact lives in many ways, but he hopes the influence is more positive than negative.
His comment surfaced during a press conference in Delhi on Tuesday when he was asked about the effects that celebrities can have, in the wake of a recent abduction case in which the accused has claimed he was inspired by Shah Rukh Khan's role in the movie Darr.
"I have never really understood the kind of effects celebrities have on people," Shah Rukh said, as he began to narrate the story of a girl from Germany who wasn't able to walk once upon a time.
He said that she fulfilled her desire of meeting him, and today, she's a married woman and has a child.
"So, celebrities can have an amazing effect on fans. I have 50 to 100 such incidents of positive impact which I don't talk about because these are personal instances. But it is strange how close we get to people... How our work influences them in a bigger way than we can ever think," he adds.
Shah Rukh Khan also unveiled the title track of his upcoming movie Fan, called 'Jabra Fan anthem' and he is virtually unrecognisable in the video.
In Maneesh Sharma's Fan, Shah Rukh Khan essays the role of a superstar's biggest fan and the level of CGI done to make him look different is commendable. The title track is catchy and a must watch for all SRK lovers:
