Shahrukh Khan starrer Fan which opens in cinema screens across India has taken a good start at the box office. As per the early samples, the film is all set to challenge Dilwale opening day.
Dilwale which was released on 18 December collected 21 crores on its first day. The film was a masala entertainer and had chartbuster music. Though it had less number of screens and was also affected by intolerance remarks.
As revealed by trade analyst Komal Nahta, Fan total gross at PVR cinemas till 2.25 PM is 3.10 crore. In comparison, Dilwale collected 4.38 crore on its first day. So with that trend, Fan will surely beat Dilwale. PVR is the largest chain of multiplexes in India. Now the performance at single screens will be crucial.
The film will also be the highest non-holiday opener beating Ranbir Kapoor's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
