FAN flops at the domestic box office

Shah Rukh Khan’s FAN has flopped at the domestic box office, as the film has dropped by 5% on a holiday for ‘Mahavir Jayanti’. It was clear from the trend over the first weekend itself, that the drop over the weekdays was inevitable. But there was hope that FAN would sustain to reasonably good levels on Monday and then show decent growth on Tuesday (partial holiday). Both of those expectations weren’t met and the film crashed both on Monday and Tuesday.

The first week business of FAN will be around 72 crore, which will be poor for a film starring a major superstar like Shah Rukh Khan. More so when it was given a big release of 3500 screens. The film could finish with lifetime business of around 85 crore, which will make it the lowest grossing SRK film since My Name Is Khan in 2010.

The overseas box office too isn’t sustaining as well as it was expected to. A few countries like Pakistan and UAE are holding up well, but others have shown bigger than expected drops.

Overall, FAN has disappointed at the box office because the film was expected to perform at multiplexes. It was never a film that was meant to do well in the heartland of India, like Shah Rukh himself said, but even he would agree that it’s the target audience (read moviegoers at multiplexes at Urban centres) who have rejected the film Saturday evening onwards.

  • Kudos to the intelligence the great Indicine’s unit possesses. Indicine is the first and the only site to declare a film verdict in just 4 days of it’s release.

    Love you SRK!

  • Still khan fans r hoping the film will cross 100cr mark…they r just blind, egoistic, self obsessed just like their idol….its a tight slap on srk & his fans will not cross 85 cr net in domestic …..a BIG FLOPPPPPP….

  • @Xzone sorry about your relative’s demise. RIP his/her soul. My condolences to the fanily of your relative. Anyways, please dont leave social networking sites as our emperor idol is ruling social media by winning all polls, all youtube records, most number of comments, tweeter followers, etc.

  • All new Directors gonna flop Khan’s this year, It feels like.
    Ali Zafar > Sultan
    Tiwari > Dangal..

    All these are in danger zone this year with new directors. Be aware….. Fan’s of other khan’s

  • SRK era is finish, his next film Raees does find the good date for release, because he does not want compete with other stars, like salmaan.

  • @Zealous

    You have a very good point.

    SULTAN will not even be close to BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN which had everything going for it. Bajrangi bhakt, deaf mute cute girl chemistry, funny situations, most importantly Nawaz’s chand nawab. Nawaz have been salman’s lucky mascot (KICK). Kareena was in film to make sure female fans flock to boxoffice.

    DANGAL is from non-hirani no name director. It might realistically go the TALAASH way. people still angry for PKs insults towards hindu gods and mythology. Aamir “intolerance” leaving the country spat. Aamir with 2 women has historically struggled TALAASH & many other. No sanjay dutt, no Boman, no hirani, no real lead actresses, it must be as good as CDI. If not 120-130 cr max despite christmas.

    I honestly think both SULTAN and DANGAL will suffer if there is way too much wrestling. as much as they promote it, wrestling is no cricket, hockey or even boxing that generates enough thrills looking at scoreboard.

    I cannot imagine watching both SALMAN and AAMIR in their movies purely based on wrestling for 2.5 hrs.

    More 2016 failures are on their way imo despite major-holiday releases. Bollywood track record is poor if cricket (LAGAAN) or even hockey (CDI) is not in their sports movies. so far the result is failures (BROTHERS).

    I’m just glad SRK finished “shakaal” masala RAEES with Dholakia, if SULTAN fails, RAEES will be a sleeper 200+cr BB.

    But problem with RAEES is Dholakia himself dont have a good BO record!

    Like you said, all khans could be in serious trouble this year.


  • Peeps…just wanna say something…Aamir has been constantly delivering content based films that too with a high entertainment value supplemented with different ideas …so this is why his films do well…but if he brings just a good film ,the fate will be like that of talaash.That is because he lacks the fans when compared to SK and srk.But he is intelligent enough to do very good films.So the Indian audience trust him. Now when we talk about srk, he had been doing commercial films with mediocre scripts which tremendously affected his stardom.As a result,though fan was a movie good enough,it is failing to do wonders at the bo. Now a word about Salman.Frankly,honestly and truly…if you look around today, there is no greater a phenomenon than salman.He is untouchable at the bo. And what more,he defies every logic.His superstardom is incomparable.That’s the truth.Whether he does a good film or not,it hardly matters.This is because people just love Salman.If aamir or any other actor does a film with a mediocre script,it’ll be a flop l.But that’s not the case with Salman.Even though envious haters continuously try to troll him,they do not succeed. And what mord ,now we can see an intelligent salman who is doing films like bajrangi bhaijaan.Yes pk is the highest earner but pk was a solo release that too during Christmas +new year. If bb had got a release like that of pk…it would have certainly become the highest earner.The fact is however good movies others bring,there still looms an uncertainty about the success about their upcoming film.That’s not the case with salman.Mark my words ,Sultan is the biggest Blockbuster of 2016 and if he continues like this, Salman who’s got the largest fan following anyone can get …nobody can deny that he is the greatest bolly star ever.This is the TRUTH folks.Accept is don’t accept it but this is the TRUTH

  • @Improper logic. Ha ha ha. What? Salman one man industry? Where? In mars or in jupitor? Which record does salman have? Answer is none. Highest opening dsy record belongs to srk, HGOAT belings to Real One Man Industry Aamir Khan. Even if aamir comes 2 years, still he is the One man industry who inaugurated each and every club be it 100 cr, 150 cr, 200 cr,250 cr, 300 cr and waut till Dangal as it will cross 450 cr or even 500 cr club if content is as great as 3 idiots. If not then also 350 cr is on cards. Its only EMPEROR AAMIR who is One Man Industry.

  • Don’t worry, it’s a shahrukh khan movie not a salmaan khan. He has bigger market. Maybe it’s abox office bomb for him in India but overseas it’s doing great. I wonder what kind of movies do indians like? Sheila ki jawaani xD

  • Biggest flop of year fan . Now producer should not waste money on shah rukh khan. he is Making records of flop movies bravo shahrukh keep going you deserve only flop movies.

  • Overseas market mai fan buss acha karrahi hai….Jo kisi actor ki hit movie bji nahi krti….diff story hai…ye ek chance hai ke pic chale ya na chale…ye Chennai exp, happy new year, dilwale ho aur collection acha kre tu bhi log film ki story ko leke bura bolte. Story movie banoa tu collection ke piiche rehte hai…is film mai no song no heroin…no entertainment..pure story hai..uspe bhi world wide acha Hi buss krrahi hai..domestic mai ummed se kam hai….is ka MATLAB ye nahi film flop hai…overseas aur domestic dono ke collection dekhenge…tab pata chale GA…aur akki ki baat krrahe hu..uski movie tu overseas mai chalti bhi nahi…

  • Don’t get me wrong even Sultan can be atleast a big underperformed if not flop. It’s directed by Mr Ali Abbas Zafar infamous for Gunday the lowest rated Indian movie on IMDB. If Maneesh Sharma who is a much better director than Ali Abbas Zafar can create a disaster called Fan than imagine what would this guy create. Sultan is luckily a solo release on a holiday so it cannot be a washout but still if it earns less than 450 CR worldwide it cannot be called a hit. Also Raees is in danger, it’s clashing with Shivaay a magnum opus though Ajay Devgan is a smaller star Shivaay can be a surprise hit it it’s content is good. Also Ranbir Kapoor’s Aye Dill hai Mushkil is also slated for a Diwali release although it seems that SRK will convince Karan Johar to move it forward. Raees Stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan RSS has got another point to target SRK.


  • @Acharyan keep spouting kiddo. Your lallu is a tiny star in front of megastar aamir khan. Ttying to break aamir’s record for last 10 years but still didnt succeed. Keep gving excuses, as megasar aamir khan’s name is enough to make u burn. Aamir has much bigger fan following than bhojpuri salman. PK’s record is out of reach for salman. He needs kabir khan to come to Megastar and box office Phenomenon aamir khan. Salman never was, never will be as big as Emperor Aamor Khan. Stuppid aamir.haters keep burning from his unmatchable stardom but nothing affects him He is the only one who can break his own record. So shut up kiddo and get lost, u are illiterate.

  • @Acharyan also one more thing, dangal will be Biggest ATBB of 2016 and floptan will not even earn half as much as Megastar Aamir Khan who has highest fan following in India and Overseas. Get los bhojpuri kiddo. Salman is tiny star in front of Biggest Megastar Aamir Khan. The only reason why lallu’s films earn is becausr they have high entertainment, masala which mass audience like, its not salman, but its masala movies’ power which is the only reason why his films earn and thats the only reason why the biggest Flopstar of last 2 decades salman khan still exists in bollywood otherwise he would have been in bigg boss house as a contestant. LOL.

  • The films are not earning enough because of these reasons.
    1. The rates of tickets have been hiked, normally a middle class family can only afford once of twice in six months for a movie.

    2. The appraisals have been poorly done due to share market crash, people left with less money.

    3. It all started after Salman PRDP when people flocked to the cinema halls to watch the performance of Salman Khan in a similar way as in BB… but the movie was huge disappointment. This had made people to take revenge by choosing the selective films. Now no Indian movie could cross 200 Marks that is sure.

    4. I think very few movies are now a days being made with keeping mind of the middle class. The middle class wants there actors should be like them not arrogant and ostentatious.

    5. Salman became hit After Dabang because it was made on the background of a village and people could relate themselves with the actor.

    6. Now SRK, Salman and Aamir and other Bollywood deeply rooted into materialistic world so common man finds it difficult to have any attachments with them.

    7. Any way with the advent of good foreign cinema has changed the taste of Indian viewers, They have seen an Indian director Ramoji could compete with Foreign film with ‘Bahubali’ so why cannot our Bollywood try to make that kind of film rather than go for the masala based films.

    8. Bollywood have potential but they have no willingness to change. this is the reason for the failure and nothing else.

  • sharukh khan makes cheap cartoons movies to make some money, he dont care about the fan’s or any members. If get his only money only, it goes only about compititions how many money the make. and he wanted to race with other actors by bash them up by big boxoffice money, The now that fan is the most terrible movie what has been ever make. Akki is the best actor and airlift is one of the best movie ever maken. Srk please get out and off the bollywood industry. You fail many times. Badlooking men srk.

  • Srk is nothing infront of Akki and hitrik roshan. Amir khan and salman khan and srk should be go out of bollywood industry. But those types only makes money and they are old. And they are only money makers srk is begging for more money. chennai express fail too than srk make double ticket, because krishh 3 has beaten srk movie out. Arjun kapoor and ranveer singh are better actors than srk.

  • Fan has failed to keep the momentum of its big opening. Targeted at a limited audience, the movie came crashing down with massive 70% drop in the collections.

    The movie has set a box office record in Pakistan with a collection of over Rs 50 million in just three days. Worldwide the movie has reached Rs 100 crore mark.

    Yet, the good reviews and word of mouth have failed to lift this Shah Rukh Khan outing. Jungle book is the biggest crosser and airlift and finally srk has been beaten out by both movie. Srk step out and get out of your chair open your mouth on tv why did you if you won’t? Keep hiding like a bitch!

  • @Acharyan i am not really sure whose fan u are, pretending to be salman fan, but whoever your idol is (even if he is salman), i feel very bad for him as he can never come close to aamir’s feet in statdom. In stardom aamir is unbeatable. Like it or not, nothing will change this fact. Lez salman do talaash and release on non holiday, it will not earn 80 cr. So better shut up and respect aamir who is much more popular and loved than salman.

  • its irritating to watch this guy, for promotion he literary intrudes everywhere, no wonder people were fade up & gave a miss to this already bakwas movie
