WATCH: 'Fan' Trailer Pits Shah Rukh Khan Against, Well, Shah Rukh Khan

A full-length trailer for one of the most awaited movies of the year is here and, well, some of you might be surprised by it.

Maneesh Sharma's Fan, featuring Shah Rukh Khan in a double role, had thus far come across as a joyous celebration of the adulation the superstar receives from fans across the globe. Its early teasers and promotional material, featuring Khan as a skinny youngster named Gaurav (made to look slightly different with the help of prosthetics) obsessed with the star Aryan Khanna (Khan again, looking more like himself), indicated that this would be a light-hearted drama-comedy.

The trailer, released by YRF on Monday evening, shatters some of those assumptions. Fan now looks like a psychological drama, wherein Gaurav is shown attempting to sabotage his idol's life (think Fatal Attraction meets The Cable Guy). There also seem to be a number of high-voltage action sequences in there that seem like they're straight out of a James Bond movie.

Well, well. The plot thickens as we wait for the film's release (i.e. April 15). Watch the trailer above.

(P.S.: Fan also stars Waluscha De Sousa and Sayani Gupta. You may even spot the two of them in this trailer.)
