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.

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.
