After registering the highest opening day of 2016, Shahrukh Khan starrer witnessed an unexpected drop on the second day. The movie collected 19.2 crores on the first day and was expected to be on the same lines on Saturday but to our surprise, the movie saw a drop of around 20% on Saturday. ‘Fan’ collected only 15.4 crores on second day which is way below expectations.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that the movie declined in mass circuits.

The average occupancy in the morning shows was around 40% which was less than the first day (50% to 55%). The movie is performing remarkably well in big cities and metros. Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and other multiplexes driven cities remained strong but mass centers and single screens performed below expectations. ‘Fan’ had a poor second day in states like Gujarat,
‘Fan’ had a poor second day in states like Gujarat, Rajasthan and UP. Moreover, the movie is also getting huge competition from last week release, ‘The Jungle Book’ which remains the first choice for the family audience.
The reviews have been superb and WOM has also been quite positive but the limited appeal (multiplex only) is affecting the movie in mass circuits. The budget of the movie is high and it needs to perform well on coming days. Since mass circuits aren’t performing well, the movie has to perform exceptionally well in metros and multiplexes.
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, ‘Fan’ is all about a story of a superstar and his fan. The movie also stars Waluscha D’ Sosa and Shriya Pilgaonkar.
