MOVIE legend Tom Cruise filmed his latest Mission Impossible blockbuster at Blenheim Palace in December.

Now his Bollywood equivalent Shah Rukh Khan, also known as SRK, has been in scenes at the stately home in Woodstock.

The Bollywood star is in the new movie Fan, and a crew of about 300 began filming scenes in the palace grounds yesterday.

The actor with one of the biggest fan bases is now playing the role of a fan himself in the forthcoming movie, due for release in the autumn.

Scenes were shot in a number of locations around the palace including the main courtyard.

One of the scenes featured a red carpet and actors dressed as paparazzi.

The film star’s bodyguard Ravi Singh, right, said: “Shah Rukh Khan was here for another film about seven years ago and is very glad to be back.

“It’s a fantastic location. He is such a great guy with the fans and will pose for photos – he’s very humble.”

Oxford Mail:

Shah Rukh Khan arrives at Blenheim Palace.

There were unconfirmed reports last month that the palace had been used as a location for the new Bond movie.

Oxford Mail readers tweeted a number of pictures showing signs that the 24th 007 movie was in the county.

Jonny Dyer posted a picture of a Porsche on the back of a trailer and said: “Lots of very expensive cars and film unit gear at Blenheim Palace today. Staff cagey but seems to be new #bond #007.”

And West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts: Children’s Theatre School tweeted pictures showing cranes and other equipment on site.

Other films which have featured the palace include Gulliver’s Travels and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Blenheim Palace would not comment on the movie Fan, which is directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra for Yash Raj Films.
