Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan made quite a few candid confessions at the trailer launch of his upcoming film 'Fan'. While many were amusing, one of them came as a shocker!

While replying to a fan's question on whether he came by flight or train the first time he travelled to Mumbai, the actor revealed that he came to Mumbai by train and was even slapped by a woman on that journey!

Narrating the ordeal, SRK said, "I came by train for the first time when I came to Mumbai. The train would turn into a local after entering Mumbai which I was not aware of. So I did not let a few people sit on my berth saying that it is mine, 'I paid for it.' I did offer it to a lady, though, saying, 'you can sit but I won't let the men with you sit on my berth'. And that lady slapped me real hard saying that 'it isn't yours, it is everybody's."

Not quite the welcome one would expect into a new city!

After the teaser of the film and the anthem track 'Jabra Fan' gave the impression that it was a 'sweet and simple' kind of film, the trailer might have surprised his fans, considering that this 'fan' gets agitated after an unpleasant experience with his favourite star and wants to get even with him.

However, Shah Rukh Khan denied that the 'fan' character he plays bears resemblance to his 'psycho' characters in films 'Darr' and 'Baazigar'.
