Fan 16th Day Collection: 3rd Saturday Box Office Report

Fan 16th Day Box Office Collection

When Shah Rukh Khan took on the roles of a superstar (Gaurav) and his obsessed fan (Aryan) in Maneesh Sharma’s Fan, it was a risk. For a while now, Shah Rukh has played it safe in a sense — films like Dilwale, Happy New Year, Chennai Express, Jab Tak Hai Jaan that played to his strengths and didn’t demand all that much in the way of histrionics from the superstar. These films were all also monster hits. However, with Fan, Shah Rukh broke away from the formula — and it seems, also from the easy commercial success of these previous entertainers. Shah Rukh Khan as Aryan in ‘Fan’.


While he has been receiving tremendous critical acclaim for his portrayal in Fan, the film simply hasn’t been the blockbuster behemoth one has come to expect that a Shah Rukh Khan film will be. The opening weekend collection was around Rs 52 crore, lower than most of the superstar’s films. Even in its second week, the film is struggling to touch the Rs 100 crore mark. With films like Chennai Express and HNY generating over Rs 200 crore and Dilwale easily pulling in Rs 150 crore, industry experts have been wondering why Fan didn’t have the same box office impact.

Now the movie has entered in its third week but has the latest action romantic movie Baaghi in opposite. With slight more drop in the business, it added the amount of only 0.45 cr* to its account on 3rd Friday. The statement cannot be denied that Shahrukh Khan starrer Fan has lost all its hold over audience and now only formality is left. It is not expected to rake more than 2.5 cr in this week. On the next day i.e. Saturday, being weekend it resulted in out little bit higher than Friday but still low. Fan done the business of approx. 0.50 crore* as its 16th day collection.
