The Dilwale star made the revelation during an episode of Colors' show Comedy Nights Bachao. He said:
"Very few people know that the concept of Fan was first narrated to me by Yashji about 10 years ago. While I was excited to explore the idea back then, for some reason it never happened. Today, I'm glad we could bring his idea to life".
Shah Rukh, who worked with Yash Chopra in films like Darr, Dil To Pagal Hai, Veer-Zaara and his last directorial, Jab Tak Hai Jaan said that the late filmmaker's absence was strongly felt during the shoot of the movie.
