Shah Rukh Khan starrer Fan has further dropped on 1st Wednesday with only getting Rs 4.20 crore which surely disappoints the producers. Now its total 6 days box office collections stand at Rs 68.35 crore. Today, it will complete its first week and the way it is going, it is almost impossible to get past the highest week one collections of Akshay Kumar’s Airlift (Rs 83 crore).
Released with around 3500 screens worldwide, Fan has totally disappointed everyone. Despite the positive reviews, it failed to transform it into numbers which is quite surprising as it featured superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose every film enjoyed wonderful run at the box office. Shah Rukh is the most popular Bollywood star in overseas and he has the most number of biggest overseas grossers in his kitty but this time it seems that this time International audiences haven’t appreciated his dual characters in Fan as of the last update, the film has only managed to do a business of Rs 40 crore in 4 days which clearly shows not so good response from his fans.
This will be the lowest week one total of any SRK film for quite some time now and it also proofs that people love to see Shah Rukh in masala entertainers like Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014) that comprised of the typical package kind of films having romance, songs, action, comedy and masala.
Now, this stiff box office journey of Fan is more difficult and it is really an uphill task for this Maneesh Sharma starrer to get past Rs 100 crore club at the end of the second weekend which is certainly shocking as Shah Rukh lat film Dilwale had crossed this mark in flat five days.
