Mumbai: Actor Shah Rukh Khan said that he misses filmmaker Yash Chopra, and said that the legendary director would have liked his new film Fan.

"I wish Yashji (Yash Chopra) had seen the film. He would have really liked it. He would have been really happy to see Fan. We miss him," Shah Rukh told PTI.

The 50-year-old actor also said that Yash Chopra did not narrate the film's idea to him.

"Maneesh Sharma (director of Fan) narrated the idea of Fan to me and they thought its Yash Chopra. Maneesh narrated the idea to me 13 years ago. Yashji was not aware of it. Mr Yash Chopra never narrated the idea of Fan to me. As a matter of fact, he never narrated any film after Darr because I did all the films that he asked me to do," said Shah Rukh.(Also Read: Guess Who Suggested the Idea of Fan to Shah Rukh Khan)

Shah Rukh had starred in Yash Chopra's last film as a director, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Fan stars Shah Rukh as superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his fan Gaurav.

"There are no songs in the film, except one. It's a pure experience of storytelling. It's a new way. When I go to Delhi, I remember my old days. I showed my kids where I was born and all that when they had come there (during shooting). When I am in Delhi, I find myself," said Shah Rukh.

Fan will release on April 15.
