Fan may have not made it to the Rs 100 Crore club, but filmmaker Maneesh Sharma is still optimistic about his SRK thriller. He told PTI that king Khan deserves an award from his performance in Fan next year.

I am actually expecting a national award for Shah Rukh, for his work in the film. Let’s hope he gets it. It feels great seeing the response Shah Rukh is getting for his performance. It is satisfying.
Maneesh Sharma told PTI 

Fan did get a thumbs up from the critics but audiences somehow chose to stay away. Shah Rukh Khan also seems to be happy with the film.

Shah Rukh is the happiest with the kind of response he is getting for his performance and the whole team is very happy as we think we have done something a little alternate, and getting appreciation for that is always way more assuring for any director, actor or producer.
Maneesh Sharma told PTI

The entire film industry is hoping that Hrithik and Kangana will end their ongoing fight soon. Sources say that lyricist Javed Akhtar also intervened to try to bring the two actors to a compromise. But that didn’t happen because they couldn’t reach an agreement. Jacqueline Fernandez was asked for a comment on the matter and this is what she had to say-

I hope it just finishes and ends soon because I know it’s very difficult. I understand what they must be going through right now. Hence, I hope that it comes to an end soon.
