11th Day Box Office Collection of Fan
When a Hindi film (Fan) earns 71+ crore in India and $7.7 million in the rest of the world in its first week, chances are that would be hailed by local media and the Bollywood industry at large as a pretty decent result. Not so for Shah Rukh Khan, who is held, unfairly, to a rather higher standard in a stellar 22-year career which has generated nine movies that each grossed more than $10 million internationally and now 11 that have surpassed $10 million in India. True, the expectations were higher for Fan, the Maneesh Sharma– directed thriller in which he plays a movie star and his 25-year-old look-alike fan. Even so, the opening week was the second biggest for a Hindi release in its home market this year trailing Raja Menon’s Airlift’s 83.5 crore ($12.5 million).
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film has taken 76.5 crore ($11.5 million) in nine days and is already the ninth biggest of the superstar’s career in India, overtaking Chak De! India (2007) and My Name Is Khan (2010). The SRK starrer was strongly predicted to be the highest grosser of 2016 but this statement has fulfilled by the parallel one Hollywood biggie The Jungle Book, despite being a week older this one has reported better performance than Fan.
The superstar SRK has given a superb performance as his both the characters but due to lack of regular ingredients like romance, music etc., the movie is getting such disappointing response. In its second weekend, the movie has minted the total of 8.25 crores* that includes 2.25 crore of Friday, 2.75 crores of Saturday and 3.25 crores* of Sunday. Now it has entered in weekdays again, and asusual started facing drops in its business. On its 11th day, Fan has done the business of only 1.85 crore* with more than 50% of drop than previous day.
