Fan Box Office: Shah Rukh Khan thriller fails to live up to the expectations

Shah Rukh Khan's Fan continued to drop in its opening week. The thriller raked in around Rs 3.75 crore on Thursday, taking first week total to Rs 72 crore.

The film opened well at the Box Office on 15 April. However, the negative word of mouth spread like fire and the collections dipped lower with every passing day. After an average opening weekend of Rs 52.35 crore, the film crashed on Monday by collecting Rs 6.05 crore. 

While the collections at mass centres were dismissal, urban centers, too, took a hit on the weekdays, adding to the woes of the YRF film.

Day-wise Box Office Collections:

  • Weekend (15-17 April): Rs 52.35 crore
  • Monday (18 April): Rs 6.05 crore
  • Tuesday (19 April): Rs 5.75 crore
  • Wednesday (20 April): Rs 4.20 crore
  • Thursday (21 April): Rs 3.75 crore (Estimate)
  • Total: Rs 72.10 crore (Estimate)
  • While Fan was not expected to enter the Rs 200 crore club, its underwhelming Box Office performance comes as a surprise to most Bollywood trade analysts. The movie is now looking to end its run at the Box Office at a figure close to Rs 90 crore - considered to be a disaster for a film helmed by Shah Rukh Khan.

    The film's budget is Rs 105 crore inclusive of print and publicity and the producers, YRF will manage to just break even thanks to the revenue generated prior to the release from the sale of satellite rights and other ancillary sources. Having said that, the film has failed to live up to the trade expectations and is a flop at Indian Box Office.
