Shahrukh Khan's latest release Fan was one of the most-anticipated films of 2016, but it seems the Maneesh Sharma directorial venture hasn't been able to cast its spell on the box office. Fan has shown slight growth on its second Saturday. According to the estimates, Fan 9th day box office collection is 2.50 crore.
Shahrukh Khan starrer has a poor trend on its 9th day. The only growth has mainly come from West Bengal where the film is on track to become the highest grosser of 2016. SRK enjoys a strong following there and even his bad films fared well here. But on the other side, Mumbai and Northern circuits have been poor in the second weekend.
Fan 2nd Saturday collection has shown limited growth which was always on the cards. But actually the drop in the second weekend could have been worse and some have feared that film may crash completely in the second week. But it is still doing decent business in big metroplexes. Plus the poor performance of new releases has also helped Fan 2nd Saturday box office collection.
Fan box office collection in 9 days will be 76.20 crores. The film has now crossed Kapoor and Sons and Neerja lifetime collection to become the 2nd highest grosser of 2016 behind only Airlift. The film is a disappointment for Shahrukh Khan. It was always a risk to make a niche film on a grand budget. Considering the genre, Fan collections are pretty good but the presence of SRK and high budget has made the expectations much higher which were always tough to meet.
Apart from Shah Rukh, the film also stars Sayani Gupta and Walusha De Sousa. Fan hit the screens on April 15. Also, write your views on Fan 2nd Satur day box office collection in the comments section.
