The movie was expected to make new records at the Box Office but that didn’t happen. In its first week, the movie was severely affected by ‘The Jungle Book’ which had a terrific second week at the Box Office. ‘The Jungle Book’ remains the first choice for the audience in metros and multiplexes.
Made on a budget of 115 crores, ‘Fan’ will find it difficult to recover its budget unless something special happen in the second weekend. Considering the current trend, it seems difficult for the movie to even cross 100 crores at the Box Office.
