SRK’s Fan 9th Day Box Office Collection
Fan had tremendous pre-release hype among audience, also it received very positive reviews from most of the critics after release. Despite all this, it got failed to show any impressive performance at box office in its opening week. We could have been consider IPL matches, school examinations as the reason behind its failure. But in opposite to it, Hollywood biggie The Jungle Book has reported comparatively better performance than Fan in its second week. This shows, the lack of regular ingredients like music, romance etc. in the YRF’s latest venture, is the only reason which disappoints audience.
In its first week, Fan witnessed overall good but lesser than earlier expectations. It did the business of total 71.50 cr across the 3500 screens of country, that includes 52.35 cr of weekend and 19.15 cr of weekdays. It has been released on around 1100 screens in overseas and has reported the total collection of 51.48 cr from there till a week. At domestic box office, Maneesh Sharma’s directorial got failed to break the opening week record of Airlift & The Jungle Book even.
The collections of Fan on the eighth day were low with around 2.25 crore nett. This was on the cards due to how the weekdays in week one performed. The drop is around 88% from day one but the first day part holiday so on fair value the drop is a lower. It could have been worse for the film but the new releases this week were weak films. The collections of the film are still okay in the big multiplexes but that makes little difference to a film like Fan which carries high expectations even though these expectations are more to with the actor rather than the potential of the film.
Now it has entered in the second week and being the only strong option on box office, it is expected to get decent in this weekend. On Saturday it started the day on an average note and raked the business of 2.75 cr. After its 9th day, total domestic collection of Fan is recorded as 76.50 crore. The film can probably expect a 80% fall in the second week which would probably mean the film is heading for lifetime business in the 85 crore nett range.
