Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose movie Fan is all set to hit the screens this Friday, is perhaps one of the most loved Indian actors of all time. But King Khan apparently does not like himself much.

"In real life, I'm not fond of myself. I don't like myself much. If I would have been fond of myself, then I would not play the characters I play. Instead, I would play myself," Shah Rukh said on a TV show.

"I don't see myself as people see me. In fact, I don't even see my films. I watch them only at technical levels, like I saw Fan. I haven't seen a movie of mine on television either. There are so many films of mine that I haven't seen. I am not a fan of myself," added Shah Rukh.

In his upcoming movie Fan, Khan plays the character of an obsessed fan as well as his reel life hero.

"Fan is a derivative of fanatic. It can be a bit negative also, at times. For people who like me, I have never, in my career of 25 years, called them fans. They are admirers. We talk about fan because I'm promoting a movie of the same name. I personally find the word 'fan' very presumptuous," said the 50-year-old actor.
