There were reports that the buzz for Fan has been decreased. The makers released Jabra Fan song on 16th February. Later on, 8 different versions of the songs were released in regional languages. The trailer was unveiled on 29th February and received a terrific response from audience and trade.

But after that, the film failed to sustain the pre-release buzz mainly due to poor marketing compaign. The promos were getting repetitive while the posters look the same. Plus there was cricket world cup going on and SRK was shooting for Raees at the same time.

Fan

With 7 days left for Fan, Luckily the buzz for the film has now started to build up. The 3 new dialogue promos have been released. SRK is going to different TV shows to promote Fan. The Madame Tussauds London will redress its Shah Rukh Khan figure as Gaurav, his character in Fan. And for the very first time in the history, it will be pulled out and set up at the London Eye on 13th April. The advance booking for will start from Sunday.

As for Trade is concerned, they are very much confident that Fan will sail through. The censor board report is also terrific but it cannot be reliable as they also said the same for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Fan boasts of a unique concept which has never been tried in Bollywood before. It is completely different from what SRK has done in recent times. The fan is releasing on a non-holiday so it will be a crucial film for Shahrukh as he cannot afford two back to back under-performers. Anything under 160 crore will be a disappointment.

  1. Huge excitement for Fan .one tHing is sure that fan will surprise all from trade to audience ..its a Very special film for SRK Fans.SRKs all jabra Fans are eagerly waiting for it

  2. cant wait more…..7 din fan in…i m dying to watch FAN

  3. “Anything below 160 will be a disappointment” FAN is a non festive release nd unique film just like Airlift nd Baby but the trade expects a lot from a Srk movie, this prove SRK movies power and anticipation among trade.

  4. In many sites and for people on an average most anticipated films are Sulthan Raees Dangal nd Mohenjodaro. After that Fan Housefull 3 nd Shivaay. I just wonder then if anything below 160 cr is also a disappointment for the other movies Shivaay(A action movie releasing in diwali with a huge clash) Houseful 3(A 3rd part of a successful franchise releasing in post ipl period)

  5. I think their is no buzz at all about FAN , really believe me no one is talking about it.

    Because of IPL and cricket world cup

  6. In my opinion anything above 155cr is a huge thing for non commercial films likes this that too releasing on normal week
    For example
    Dishoom, ADHM nd Befikre all expected to take an opening of anything between 15 to 20 cr. If the same movies made anything between 100cr nd 125 cr is that a disappoint boxoffice perfomance. Its not disappoinment if a movie like this made below 130cr.But i think its bcz the blockbuster trailer nd SRK. is the reason for u to say that. Fan is expected to take an opening of 18 ct to 23 nd in my words anything below 130 will be disappointment if we see it as business wise but if we consider its huge trailer and the rumour of its the ” Return of King khan to content rich films” any thing below 150cr(without considering the response)will be disappointment considering the hype.If if it failed to make 170cr with positive review then it will question Srk’s boxoffice power.

    • The haters here commenting negatively on Fan haven’t probably seen their own stars movies. SRK is a superstar in India and overseas. The ones against him are the ones who want to have the limelight by saying negative things. Fan is a content driven and niche film and also opening on a non holiday. The movie can do business in the range of 150-175 crore if content is appreciated. No record breaking expectations but it should be a solo SRK movie with no other support and no superhit music. It’s a movie for his Fan’s and they will ensure it dies well worldwide. Cheers to all.

  7. In my opinion anything above 155cr is a huge thing for non festive nd non commercial films likes this that too releasing on IPL period
    For example
    Dishoom, ADHM nd Befikre all expected to take an opening of anything between 15 to 20 cr. If the same movies made anything between 100cr nd 125 cr is that a disappoint boxoffice perfomance. Its not disappoinment if a movie like this made below 130cr.But i think its bcz the blockbuster trailer nd SRK is the reason for many to say that its a disppointment if the movie failed to cross 160cr at the boxoffice. Fan is expected to take an opening of 18 ct to 23 nd in my words anything below 130 will be disappointment if we see it as business wise but if we consider its hype, huge trailer and the rumour of its the ” Return of King khan to content rich films” any thing below 150cr(without considering the response)will be a disappointment. If if it failed to make 170cr with positive review then it will question Srk’s boxoffice power.

  8. I m just tired of waiting for fan. Still 6 days to go. Extremely excited to watch fan on first day first show.

  9. buzz is not that huge as of other srk movies but content will be as good as airlift. so it will grow tremendously on weekends and will show good hold over weekdays.
