Fan may not have performed up to the expectations and the trade may label the film as a flop. But according to Yash Raj Films, Fan has turned out to be a successful venture for them.
YRF has revealed the business economics of the film. According to that, the film’s rights were sold to Sony TV for a handsome amount of 55 crores. So a major chunk of the investment had already been recovered before the release.

The film is still running in theaters and is expected to add another 10 crores in the profit. There were reports that film’s satellite rights were taken by Shahrukh Khan as his fee. But according to the sources, the actor had profit sharing agreement with YRF. SRK has recently also said that he does not take the fee for his films but takes an amount if the film is successful.
So by that, Fan is not a loss for YRF. It is a rare scenario as the film was being distributed by YRF themselves so distributors loss will not be there. But still the film is a major letdown at the box office as the expectations were much higher mainly because it featured Shahrukh Khan. As from our side, Fan verdict is still kept on hold. We will be able to give the box office verdict next week considering the film is still running.
