The biggest name in the Bollywood film industry Shah Rukh Khan, believed to be worth an estimated $600 million, filmed sections of his latest blockbuster “Fan” in the streets of Dubrovnik. The film was released on the 15th of April this year and received rave reviews and took over $9 million in its first ten days.
Sections of the film were filmed on location in Dubrovnik, with the old harbour, the Stradun and even a chase over the rooftops of the historic Old City featuring. Now a clip of some deleted scenes of the filming in Dubrovnik has emerged and give an insight into the filming.
Firstly we see Shah Rukh Khan studying a Dubrovnik city map produced by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, then we see him ordering an ice-cream on the Stradun before heading into the popular cafe bar Cele on the Stradun for a change of outfit.
Fan was filmed in May of 2015 in Dubrovnik and the filming lasted for around ten days. After the success of Game of Thrones and the recently recorded Star Wars in the city the Bollywood blockbuster will surely open Dubrovnik to another market.
