Shah Rukh Khan likes to live king size and makes film on bigger canvas every year. But he has other pursuits as well which are equally extravagant. The King Khan recently bought two original posters of Mughal-E-Azam for Rs. 6.84 lakh.

Like every years, Osian's conducted this auction of rare Bollywood memorabilia that fetched the auction company nearly Rs. 55.6 lakh. Apart from the Mughal-E-Azam posters, the Pyaar Hua Iqrar Hua moment captured in a painting by Arpana Caur with Raj Kapoor and Nargis housed under an umbrella went for 7.5 lakh, highest in the lot. The Dilip Kumar-Meena Kumari embrace standee of Yahudi went for Rs. 4.8 lakh.

The patrons were more interested in laying their hands on items focusing on legends like Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand apart from Nargis, Meena Kumari and Madhubala. It almost created a frenzy at the auction. The Ganga Jamuna artwork signed and inscribed by Dilip Kumar sold for 2.16 lakh and a six-sheeter poster of Mother India fetched 2.52 lakh.

Shah Rukh Khan to Repeat Epic Train Sequences in Aditya Chopra's 'Fan'

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is busy shooting Aditya Chopra's upcoming film "Fan", will reportedly have train sequences much like Khan's previous hit movies.

Be it "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge", "Dil Se", "RA.One" or "Chennai Express", Khan had train sequences in almost all his big films and it appears like the epic scene will be repeated in "Fan" too.

"The set for the scene consisted of three train wagons that were recreated in the studio. One of the wagons was only half made so that the interiors could be shot with ease." a source close to the production house told Hindustan Times.

Apparently, the actor has already finished shooting for the action sequence last week at a suburban studio in Mumbai.

It looks like train sequences have proved lucky for the "Happy New Year" actor, whether it is dancing above the train like in the popular song "Chaiyya Chaiyya" from "Dil Se" or a film based on train "Chennai Express", all have worked wonders for the Bollywood king.

Produced by Yash Raj Films, "Fan" is supposedly based on the story of a fan who is on a mission to meet the one he has idolized for long.

Ileana D'Cruz of "Barfi!" fame, will apparently play the lead actress opposite Khan. However, the makers have not officially announced D'Cruz's involvement in the film.

Further, director, Maneesh Sharma has kept the film's content as a secret, and the entire cast and crew of "Fan" have been banned from using mobile phones on the sets, in order to prevent pictures getting leaked from the sets.

There were also reports that Khan will sport a different look in the film, for which Academy Award-winning make-up artist Greg Cannom known for his special effects, has been roped in to create a unique look for the actor in the film.

Written by Habib Faisal, "Fan" is scheduled to release worldwide on 14 August 2015.
