So now most of you know that we track box office performance of every new film for at least one week. We post early estimates of that day at 9:30 PM. In most of the cases, they have been accurate (considering 10% difference as producers sometimes manipulate figures). At the release of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani, we successful posted both films collection for two weeks and was applauded by fans and also many in the trade.
But in the case of Fan, Bollyarena has gone wrong over the weekend as the difference was more than 10%. Even trade was not expecting such low numbers and many exhibitors were also surprised. It is a rare case and the last film that we failed to track was Tamasha. Actually, it is tough to predict numbers too early for these kind of films as they have a varied performance at different centers. Though our prediction for Fan opening was accurate.
We are looking into the matter that what has gone wrong and will try to improve. As some of you are asking, we do not follow any of box office portal except Box Office India. We also have our own box office data centre.
Thank you all for your love and support.
