The king of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is all set to star in director Maneesh Sharma's upcoming movie Fan. Khan's last movie Chennai Express was a blockbuster while his most awaited movie Happy New Year is slated to release later this year.

For his next film King Khan will perform some high octane action sequences in exotic international locations, the Hindustan Times reported.

Meanwhile the movie director has already begun his location hunting in European countries and is zeroing on places like Zagreb, Hvar and Dubrovnik in Croatia, the Netherlands, and Scotland.

Khan is reportedly the reason behind the decision to shoot the movie in unique locations across Europe. The projects will kick start after the release of Khan's highly anticipated movie Happy New Year.

"Since SRK will be seen doing some high-octane action sequences, he wants to make it a special treat for audiences. That's why he is keen to shoot the film at a location that is largely untapped by Bollywood films," a source revealed to the daily.

"He has also done extensive research and zeroed in on a couple of places that he can scout for, to film in. Now the team just needs to identify the places to shoot, while keeping the safety of the actors and crew in mind" the same source added.

Shooting in exquisite locations has become a sort of trend in Bollywood as the Chennai Express star's arch rival Salman Khan too is shooting the climax scene of his next movie Kick in Warsaw, Poland.

At the moment though Khan is busy with the Indian Premiere League in which his team Kolkata Knight Riders are competing
