Fan Verdict: Hit or Flop

Shahrukh Khan’s Fan which was released on 15 April could not perform well at the box office.

Despite Fan having strong initials, the film could not maintain the pace after the opening day.  The word of mouth was mixed and was only appreciated by a small section of the audience. It was also competing against The Hollywood release The Jungle Book which thrashed Fan despite being in second week.

The film that was made on the budget of 105 crores will fail to recover the costs. Though the makers are already in the safe zone.

Let’s also take a look at Fan hit or flop business economics.

Fan Verdict:

So Fan still needs to collect approximately more 30 crores from distributor share to recover its costs. Looking at the trends it seems almost impossible. So most probably Fan will be a flop. But somehow if the film manages to collect around 100 crores, it will be called an average grosser.

Fan was distributed by Yash Raj Films itself. So the distributors lost will not be huge. As for YRF is concerned, they are very much in the safe zone. Shahrukh Khan’s last film Dilwale was also a semi-hit in India as it collected 149 crores. This will be a setback for the actor. He is now gearing up for Raees, also releasing in 2016.

  1. You just could not call a film flop if its not having collection… The audience are liking it thts the matter and srk told before itself that FAN AND RAEES are both diffrent genre movie and mighr not collect even 100 crore .. So its wrng to call FAN a flop

    • flop, hit, blockbuster … are all boxoffice’s verdicts so of course it’s not wrong.
      Saying a movie is a hit or a flop, doesn’t imply that the movie is bad or great.
      How can you not get that ?
      so yes he can call a film a flop if it’s not collecting money, that’s what you call a flop!

      • True i saw how much risk he is taking from movies he is doing like Happy New Year, Chennai Express , Dilwale.
        After chakde i dont think any movie he did was what he deserve to be!!
        SRK fans – Get some life yaar!!!

        • after chak de…??WoW.
          You forgot My name is Khan,Don 2, Jab Tak Hain Jaan..
          FAN is Awesome movie …What a Brilliant Performance by SRK.

  2. fan ( 4 holidays in just 6days) 3 semi holiday – Friday , Tuesday , Wednesday) & one full holiday- sunday)……. 3600 srn …. full positive review ….. phirvi pankha band ha ha ha ha …. itna kuch agar tushar kapur ka film ko vi milta to ovi super hit dedeta khi khi khi khi

    • Khan Bhai I think tumhare loye 365 din hi holiday hona chahiye aur jo hai so aap ye bhi bol sakte ho loll….. Jab Mann tab dekho movie aur bolo ki Sara din holiday tha phir bhi flop ha ha ha ha loll

    • Experimental class movie. Tu nahin samjhega Fan hun na. Dear if u r nt fan of any body so dont see it. It is not a movie to just dishum n oye oye. Class movie always hv a lake of mazority audience.

  3. just modified story of darr nothing is different.everything is in movie some action,thrilling,dilaugoe, locations,story also a good but main problem is screen play was dull and we bored this type 90’s story movie that same goes for salman’s PRDP i am die hard fan of salman and i also feels bad when our stars film was not up to mark.so dont excuse with genre.aur srk ki tarah ego main mat raho bhai sorry bol de warna FAN jaisi halat ho jayegi

    • Ooo brother kk darr mein blockbuster songs the but fan mein ek bhi nhi…..
      Darr ko solo release mili thi but fan is competing with theri and jungle book….
      Darr has the universal appeal but fan has limited….
      Darr me ek leading actress thi but fan didn’t have….
      Aur bolu ki Etna khafi hai lol……

      Aur jaha tak baat hai salman aur srk me comparison Ka to mat Kr kyuki
      Srk ke dad great writer and director nhi the salman ke dad me jaysa……..
      Srk me road mein 5 logo pe car chada Kr unhe nhi maara tha jo salman me kiya…..
      Aur khaas baat abhi bhi salman aur srk mein srk jyada amir hai and also respect old citizens as he knows the value of family(wife,children’s) what salman doesn’t have…..lollll

      • @sunny singh aap ki ye baat se main agree karta hu ki ark ne jyada problem face kiye hai real life par wo akela insaan nahi hai jo is tarah se aaya ho jackie shroff, akshay kumar,rajnikant ye sab road se hi star bane hai par wo sab SRK ki tarah selfish aur egostic nahi hai wo kisi na kisi tarah se desh ke liye achha kaam like charity karte hi hai jaise ki hal hi main akshay sir ne maharastra k farmer ko 50 lakh donate kiye hai aur salman bhi charity karte hai.,ere jaise bahut se aise log hai jo salman sir k acting ki wajah se nohi unke helping nature ki wajah se fan hai.aur rahi baat car accident wali to tu koi judge nahi hai jo direct faisla suna raha hai aur wo srk ki tarah lakho logo ko marne wali advertisement nahi karte for example royal stag(alcohol) and pan masala as well so shut your mouth

        • Yaar itne sudh vichar ki ad me bhi bimari ddhundh li. Bhai pehli baat ye ki aap apna gyan facebook ki bajay wikipedia se badhaen. Salman ya akshay ki charity ko wo show karte hen jabki srk charity ko discuss nhi karta par records ke lie official wikipedia padhen . Usne 32 village to adopt kiye hen electric k lie . Sanyukt rashtra ne use uski charity k lie internatinal award diya he. Ajeeb haal he India ka. School me padhte nhi aur facebook pe GK badhate hen.

        • Bhai,kabhi aapko samaymile to Google me jakar srk charity type karna aur dekhna,phir bolna.UNESCO se srk ko charity ke liye award mila he.aur bhi bahut he dekho phir bolo.A CHARITY DOING FOR A REASON IS NOT A CHARITY and SRK follows it.srk apna publicity ke liye charity nahi karte.aap khud hi sochiye srk,amitav,john,priyanka ye sab charity karte hen lekin log jyada jante nahin kya ye sab super star nehin he,,aur salman khan karte to ye kaise pura media me a jati he.bhai charity logo ki bhalai ke liye hota he apna publicity ke liye nehin ki khud ko achha sabit karne ke liye nehin.rahi baat good human ki to srk got many awards as DATUK from maleysia,DOCTORATE from Edinburg and many more,bhai kya paagal hen.plz go to Google and search for srk charity and awards,phir bolna srk desh ke liye kuch kiya ki nehin.plz plz plz sahi chiz ko accept kare kharabi har koi me hota he aur pehele janiye phir boliye,sochiye aap ki bare me koi na jan kar galat bolega to aap ke chahane balo ko keisa lagega.

      • Darr me Sunny Deol tha jiski popularity ki wajah SE he log film dekhne gye the.. Par YRF aur srk ne milke Sunny ko dhoka diya aur uska role Kum krdiya.. Aaj usi ka fal srk ko Darr jesi film fan K flop SE milgya

    • Apni apni pasand he jaruri nhi ki mujhe jungle book achchi lage aurtujhe Fan. So stop thinking urself a master choice.

  4. agli baar raees ki…..chlo sultan se to bch gya….lekin agr sultan se pitta to utti zada insult nhi hoti….. lekin gya Ajay k pass….. usse pitne k baad to Kisiko Muh dikhane k layak nhi rhega….??

  5. Thanks Indicine for the FAN update..
    As per Trade Pundits, FAN is already declared as Disaster to FLOP. It is impossible for the film to do collections of 140 to 150 for HIT.
    FAN is biggest flop of 2016.

  6. FAN had to collect in India more than 160 crores for HIT status. So, FAN will be biggest flop for SRK and YRF.

  7. FAN Officially made his career THE END.Next in the line Raees,Sultan &Dangal FLOP FLOP FLOP :D Bollywood needs new blood to sustain not rotten khans ….

  8. FAN WILL NEVER CROSS MORE THAN 90 PLUS CRORES FOR SURE…….
    The film is boring and slow. With many loopholes. Now this movie will be one of the most biggest debacle in the history of bollywood as the budget including SRk’s fee will be over 145 crores
    Now as for raess it will definitely not clash with sultan
    Is this the end of shahrukh khan?

  9. It Was Only For Chamchaa which Called FAN…His Love for Pakistan and Against Hindustan will Difenetly Quit From India and Settle in Pakistan…! Next will also Be HugeFlop…Namak Hindustan ka khaya Paisa bhi Hindustan main kamaya…aur Raag Pakistan ka Gaya…!! …Acting Bilkul nahi Sirf Banner ki Wajah aur Diwali Release …Paisa deker Fake Record btana Roz Roz nhi chalta..Everyday is NotSunday..

  10. For this kind of movie to collect 100 crore is itself a big achievement and i think it will be very close to 100 crore. Again Fan is for fans not for boxoffice. It will be an average grosser. Love u srk.

  11. Srk’s content rich movie not even scoring 100 crs is just unacceptable..without holidays he is a big zero..

  12. Ye Sunny singh to hadd hi karta he. He is defending every posts against SSSSS…Shahrukh. Shahrukh takes Tv rights as his remuneration … who told you ki wo free me kam karta he..kuch bhi? If public has not liked a film, it will not work at the box office regardless of genre. keep it simple.

  13. Giving such kind of article on hit or flop position and adjusted calculations of FAN itself says the whole story of it.

  14. Comment:Box office collection dropped due to piracy. Almost 50℅ of people in India saw the film by downloading from the net. It should be checked before release of Raes.

  15. FAN is made for connections not for collections ☺ After watching FAN I can proudly say Indian cinema is heading towards right way. ☺
    FAN have raised the standard of Indian cinema and let’s take the moment and thanks Shah Rukh Khan for FAN ♥.

    • TO CINEMA LAGANI KI KYA JARURAT THI ..IF ITS FOR CONNECTION…BC …TV PE RELEASE KAR DETE POORA INDIA DEKHTA…SAALA KUCH BHI BULVA LOG TUM LOGO SE..NOT COLLECTION..FOR CONNECTION VAGERA VAGERA…BHEEK MANGWA LO PRODUCERS SE IF NOT FOR COLLECTION…GHANTA

  16. Super stardom kisi ke baap ki waje se nahi aati uske liye mehnat karni parti hai, AMITABH BACHAN super star where is ABHISHEK BACHAN, RAJ KAPOOR FAMILY is a biggest FAMILY where is RANBHIR KAPOOR, MITHUN us ka BETA, RAJ BABBAR uska beta aur aisa bohat examples hai mere paas, stardom sab ke bas ki baat nahi baba, Jo sapna saleem khan lekar aaye the us sapne ko unke bete ne pura kiya, baat mat karo beta SALMAN KHAN is a BIGGEST MEGA STAR agree karlo acha hoga aur please harne ke baad reasons mat doondo accept karlo shayad next movie HIT hojaye

  17. such kaha gea hy k kuch logun k lye apne jan bhe dy do to woh yahe kahty haen k thek tarah se mara nhe…….
    Kuch tum jaisy he log hoty haen jin ke wajah se pora country boht sary issues face krta hy…..
    so just thinkkkkk about it,,…….

  18. Insultinggg actors like this u all think u r doing veryyy great.. Whats rubbish yar. Stop this nonsense… Jo 25 years se sabko entertain krte a rahe hn alag alag audience ko salman, srk, amir all three hv their fan following and entertain their fans. They r not foolish actors.. They hv already proved their ability cos 25 years is a very longg time.. After a great contribution of these actors in bollywood are enough to prove their ability.. And after 25 years u r questioning on them.. This is disgusting yar..wo log aaj jis makam par hain waha unki ek ya do films flop hona is not a big deal.. Chahe wo srk ho salman ho ya amir… Salon se in actors ne apko entertain kiya h.. Please respect their work.. Is tarah unka majak banana is not good… Fanism is a different thing. Koi amir ko jyada like krts h koi salman ko to koi shahrukh ko.. All hv their choice but making their fun is veryy bad.. I request u guys plss respect actors and their work.. And dont hurt the feelings of each others fav actors and their fans

    • Thanks shweta. Atleast koi to aya cmnts men jisko respect n fan love ki value pata he. Warna aajkal har koi jo kisi kaam ki khud image na bana paya KRK ki tarah ; wo bas caroron ke projects ko apne review ese deta he jese usne khud reliance khareed li ho apne dum pe.

  19. FAN Super flop , just imagine Now if sultan sallu clash with Saruk , what will happen to saduk :) LMAO
    IM SURE SARUK WILL AVOID CLASH with super star sallu sultan.

  20. It wll be proved that its a biggest disaster ever of SRK!!! Nthing to say much!!!! Mh bhi ek fan huin SKR bt mh har ek film ko best nhi bol skta !!! Jo accha hota h usse appreciation milta h jo phaltu hota h use nhi milta!!! Thats it……..

  21. Good news for srk haters.
    Mowgli ke success ke baad salman bhi chaddi pehen ke aa raha hai eid par jisme faltu gaaane overacting aur nonsense story sab kuch hai..
    Bilkul aapke quality ki movie hai
    So please usko bahut saari eidi dena taki phir se ghatiya movies aati rahe..

  22. FAN is a wastage of time and money … unexpected from SRK such a BAD theme…kash release se pehle apni movie dekh leta …

  23. lt should definately be a hit or semi hit . Because a fan or a movie can never judge by a name. Aur agar flop bhi ho gyi to bare bare bajat ki filmo me aise chote chote flop hote rahte h

  24. SRK ripped apart again. first dilwale now fan, soon raees. Please keep up the class Mr. SRK, oh sorry you don’t have any (lol). Flop actor, making new comers and even the old goldies (kajol) doing flops. Such a class of his fans trying to protect him, first got nailed by bajirao and now jungle book they think, but deep in their heart they know SRK is a flop actor. hahahahahaha

    • isse jyada to tiger shroff ki baaghi hi kama legi..101% bet..hahahaha flop ho gya ab srk bus bakchodi hi reh gyi hai

  25. After going through all the comments, mostly I found few things that did not work for a Niche film like FAN

    1) It does not have Item songs like “Munni Badnaam Hui”,”Hoto ko seene se chipkalu Fevicol se”.
    2) It does not have sharp caricature against Hindu Rituals like “Wrong number, connection lool ho giya”
    3) It does not have one man army hero who can beat 20-25 people without even a slight movement of his hair.
    4) It carries a genre which is far unique than that of typical Mashala/Action/Dhamaka/Tod-Fod.
    5) SRK who gave a splendid performance which Got critically acclaimed even from IMDB(Rate:- 8.1) has got so many critics here who do not know a simple difference between an Actor and a Star.

    Also in terms of Charity “Even if I could able to sale a piece of cloth(Being Human)at a whopping amount of 2000 bucks which merely values 200(I have been gifted a few of them from my Relatives), I would have been the best known charity worker by this time.”

    Last but not the least, I am not a big fan of SRK, neither a haters of other Khans, but as a Movie lover putting my thoughts on this. No hard feelings please.

  26. Fan is Flop as Srk is not in his true figure and body language. Actully junior was looking some immature that could not make a big hit. After Jab tak hai jaan, srk movie are not upto the standards.

  27. Fan is flop or hit I don’t know about that but I’m a SRKian nd I proudly say that this is one of the best movie of Bollywood..
