Exclusive: Shriya Pilgaokar recalls taking career advice from Shah Rukh Khan during Fan
You cannot ask for a better debut than working with Shah Rukh Khan in your first film. Getting this opportunity was Shriya Pilgaokar who proved her talent in her first film Fan. The actor went on to do some brilliant work after, especially with her celebrated series Mirzapur and has a lot coming for her in the future.
Talking of her debut, Shriya told Filmfare how it was working on a film like Fan and sharing the screen space with SRK, “Fan will always have a special place in my heart. To share screen space with Shah Rukh Khan feels surreal even now. It tried to tell a different story in a different way. Kudos to Shah Rukh Khan for taking that risk and playing a double role in the film. Both the characters he played were poles apart from each other. It taught me that one should never be afraid to take risks. I’m proud of the film and proud of my work in the film. “
When asked if she took any acting tips from SRK, she said, “I loved interacting with him as he’s an intelligent man. He’s insightful and we had many interesting conversations. I shared with him that I wasn’t just interested in being an actor but wanted to be a filmmaker someday as well. I told him I’ve already made a short film and a documentary. He was very supportive of that and recommended a book on screenplay writing called Save The Cat, which I bought later. “
