FAN got it's required screens/shows so jungle book won't be affecting it much. It's that it's an offbeat & unconventional film.
This is what's frustrating. For the last 2 years we have been talking about how the audience just want quality movies nowadays and now that we have a quality film from SRK, it is too dark for them to watch. When Raees releases, there will be a new excuse.
nobody is trying to target SRK ..lets get that straight..he is getting rave reviews after ages and iAwill win all the awards this year so I am very happy about that..as far as the film is concerned obviously it lacks entertainment value a heroine and songs and then people are criticising the second half so all these factors and denting the film's collections ..hopefully it will remain steady at multiplexes and the overall numbers will be good..lets keep our fingers crossed and stop whining!
agantuk and nasir i know you guys are as much a SRK Fan as i am. My suggestion to you watch the movie, enjoy the movie and do not look at BO numbers. Forget BO thing for a while this is the moment of rejoice as this movie celebrates SRK the Actor and not SRK the Superstar. If anyone brings the BO discussion with you first question you ask is have they seen FAN ? If No discussion ends tell them to first see the movie and then discuss BO and if answer is yes just ask them if they like SRK's performance again if answer is yes the discussion ends as the movie was not meant for BO numbers but for the critical acclaim.
And just an indication how audience take a movie do you know how much Lunchbox collected at Indian BO hardly 10-15 Crore. But its considered a classic and i hope FAN also gets in category of Classic or critical acclaim.
Some of you are on the verge of becoming another Satheesh who is also a SRK FAN but a bigger box Office FAN.
well i just wanted to inform you all that for me Fan is a masterpiece and brilliant performance by srk. if it was in my hands i would give srk the national award best actor ( popular ) and also the filmafre award best actor ( popular ) for fan in 2017 awards.
regarding box office results for fan i am not interest as fan was meant for critical acclaim and not bo numbers.
Hi I am from Ahmedabad. This intolerance image is hurting SRK very badly. I have friends who all were used to go to the theatre for all earlier SRK movie but since Dilwale they(150 people) have decided to see other movie timing in theatre while SRK movie is going to released. All of them are highly educated, post graduate people. They have made group on social media. What ever you people are saying but he had troubled himself very badly by intolerance episode. By the way watched the FAN FDFS...4.5/5..... Classic... Speechless in the end. Public reaction is very very positive and still the normal public don't want to go to see the movie, the reason is not the movie itself.
Please don't stress too much on BO..just enjoy the all the appreciations SRK receiving for his incredible performance. Dont ruin it by giving this level importance to BO....it only makes it worse.i watched the film...it's treat for SRK fans...it may not be appealing for kids and woman...that's okey...that's what makers expected as well.
I am so happy after watching s good from movie from SRK after a long wait!!!!!
FAN Sunday 3rd Day Collections and Weekend: Early Estimate
FAN has collected Rs 18-19 crore on Sunday at the box office, taking the 3-day collections to 52 – 53 crore net – as per early estimates (official collections will be published in the morning).
Multiplex business did show decent growth on the 3rd day, especially at metro cities where the occupancy for the noon and evening shows was pretty good.
Monday now becomes all important for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer. Tickets at multiplexes are sold for a cheaper price during the weekdays. For example, PVR Juhu in Mumbai was selling night show tickets for Rs 380 for the weekend, the same show ticket for the weekdays (Monday to Thursday) is 30% cheaper at Rs 270.
Since the film is performing mainly at multiplexes, the drop in ticket prices will have an impact on business.
Ideally, FAN needs to hold to around the 9-10 crore mark on Monday. This would give the film a fair chance of not only recovering costs, but going on to become a decent grosser.
FAN Box Office Collections in 3 days
Friday – 19.2 crore Saturday – 15.4 crore Sunday – 18-19 crore (approx, early estimate) Total – 53 crore (approx)

Fan has scored very well in Overseas with collections set to be around $6.50 million range. The collections from United Kingdom, US / Canada, Gulf, Australia and Pakistan are over $5.25 million between them. The apprx figures from main circuits are as follows.
United Kingdom - £425,000 US / Canada - $1,400,000 Gulf - $2,500,000 Australia - A$225,000 Pakistan - $650,000
The film has done fantastic in Gulf with collections among the top five openers (could be top three depending where Sunday lands). The overseas figure may not be challenging the records but to go over $6 million for this type of film is a strong performance. It is the eighth highest opening ever in Overseas.
There have been twelve films to open above $5 million which the mark for a very good opening in Overseas and seven are Shahrukh Khan starrers. The seven being My Name Is Khan, Ra.One, Don 2, Chennai Express, Happy New Year, Dilwale and now Fan.

Fan had a good first weekend of 52 crore nett as all three days recorded good business. The weekend is by the far highest of this year beating the 42.50 crore nett of Airlift. In terms of all time openings the film stands in 17th place. The first weekend business of Fan is as follows
The film has recorded good numbers in Mumbai, Delhi / UP, West Bengal and Mysore and even other circuits are fairly good but the issue will be that big drop in mass centres on Saturday. There were drops of 30-40% in some cities which makes the long term business depending on a handfull of cities.
The film was always going to be about where the Rajasthan's and Gujarat's go as you can't get a big number without the support of these mass centres and this crowd has not really taken to the film.
Broke records in Pakistan which is a bit of a surprise since you'd expect Pakistani and Indian audiences to be similar.
