2015 is packed with some big budget mega star films. As you all know that we predict for big films in 3 parts. There was some delay this year, but now we will be prediction opening day and lifetime collection for all big films including Raees, Sultan, Dangal etc. The table at the end of this article will be updated after every prediction.
The first one to release is none other than Shharukh Khan starrer Fan.
Fan is a thriller film directed by Manesh Sharma. The film stars Shahrukh Khan in the lead role. It has been produced by Yash Raj Films and is scheduled to release on 15 April 2016.
Today we are gonna talk about box office prediction of Fan. In this part only opening day, weekend and lifetime collection will be predicted. We will give our final predictions before the release of the film.
The promos of the film have worked been loved by audience as well as trade. Though there was a perception that the film will only cater to SRK fans as it tells the story of a fan and a superstar. But after the release of trailer, things have been changed. It is now looking like an edge of the seat thriller. Now the distributors are extremely positive about the film and its appeal towards audience.
There is only song in the film which is Jabra Fan. It has been dubbed into regional languages which will ensure a wider reach especially in Bihar, UP and Gujarat.
After a long time SRK is making a comeback to thriller genre. The comparison with Darr and Baazigar has further increased the hype. The pre-release buzz is increasing but as there are no songs in the film, it will be interesting to see the marketing from YRF.
The fate and negativity around Dilwale can have some affect on Fan too. Though it is very unlikely that the shows of Fan will be distributed like Dilwale. It is releasing in IPL season which is not considered great for Bollywood. Most of the people wait for the post IPL weekend to release their big projects. There is also no lead heroine in the film.
To be honest, after what happened to Dilwale, every one will be too careful in writing Fan movie prediction. Anyway we still belive that Fan can be a game changer for Shahrukh Khan due to the factors mentioned above.
Fan will have a wide screen count thanks to YRF's distribution skills. It will open big in ciruits like West Bengal, Mysore, Delhi while decent in others. The film can show big growth over the weekend if it is aided by reviews and word of mouth.
After a good opening weekend, the performance on weekdays will be very crucial. Recently only those films are working which have solid content (Airlift, Neerja, BM). The film has to be very special to survive on weekdays. Otherwise it can witness bigger drops if it is not up to the mark.
There are many regional holidays after 15th April. It will get two open weeks before Tiger Shroff's Baaghi will release. So the film has every chance to score well. The overseas performance will also be very interesting to see
