The star and fan relationship in Bollywood
- Planet Bollywood Special Correspondant           Let us know what you think about this article

The actor can become a star with his own talent, dedication, hard work and persistence but any actor becomes star because of his fans. The fans play a very important role in the growth of an actor. We have lots of actors in our country but not everybody becomes a star. Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri are great actors but they did not reach the popularity of actors like Dharmendra, Jeetendra and Shatrughan Sinha. Everyone in the tinsel town aspires to become a big star. An actor will be lying if he says he wants to just different kind of films and roles only. It is the case of sour grapes. The stardom is eluding them.

It is more difficult to earn stardom than delivering good performances year after year. The actor's job is to act and give good performances and entertain people. They have the talent and inclination for that. Stardom comes with love from the fans. Your acting performance can earn you admiration but not love. When people are in love, they try to impress each other. The stars have to keep impressing their fans. A fan is one, who watches his favorite movie star's movie in the first weekend itself. A fan is the one, who whistles or claps in theater for his favorite star entry scene or at his punch dialogues. The fan is one who clicks at 'like' button or comments on story related to favorite star in social media.

When a star is hospitalized or ill, fans pray for his good health. When Amitabh Bachan met with an accident during 'Coolie', he was in a very critical stage. Fans all over India prayed for him so that he gets well. A superstar also needs to be nice to his fans. Any relationship has to work on both ways. Rajesh Khanna lost his superstardom in short time. It was not only his choice of films but his eccentric nature that led to his downfall. The number of hhis fans reduced over the years. On the other hand Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan's fans keep increasing over the years because they have done good films but also they are very nice to their fans. Shah Rukh Khan is the best example for being very nice and considerate to his fans. He takes pictures with them and dances with them, whenever there is an opportunity. He only gives love back to all his fans. He has never been rude to any fans.

Some fans can be pshyco and act foolish but stars need to ignore them or understand them. Those fans love you beyond everything. Yash Raj Films' Fan releasing this week. The movie stars Shah Rukh Khan in a double role and directed by Maneesh Sharma. It stars Shah Rukh Khan both as a star and fan. It will be an interesting film and looks like a thriller. We have a film dedicated to the fans of actors in our country. We have lots of fans getting together and making groups and associations for their favorite stars. In South India, they bathe their favorite star poster with milk on the day of his release of his film. We have fans waiting in queue for tickets for glimpse of favorite star in his new movies.

Nobody can beat Rajinikanth fans in our country. He has the best and the biggest fan base. In Bollywood, the craze shown by Salman Khan fans is unparalleled. His fans love him to the core of their heart. He either has people loving him or hating him for his cases. Even star children earn the benefit of that. Your parents were loved by their fans and they are giving a son or daughter a good chance. The star and fan relationship is beautiful for growth of cinema.
