Guys, seriously no point challenging the stardom of Shahrukh Khan. He has seen the industry much more up, close and personal than most of us

I never understood this tuteja guy. Is he pro or anti srk. Or neutral

Pocture pasand nahi aayi thi isko...but ya i think he liked srk performance

FAN flops at the domestic box office

2 hours agoby Indicine Team98 Comments2 min read

Shah Rukh Khan's FAN has flopped at the domestic box office, as the film has dropped by 5% on a holiday for Mahavir Jayanti'. It was clear from the trend over the first weekend itself, that the drop over the weekdays was inevitable. But there was hope that FAN would sustain to reasonably good levels on Monday and then show decent growth on Tuesday (partial holiday). Both of those expectations weren't met and the film crashed both on Monday and Tuesday.

The first week business of FAN will be around 72 crore, which will be poor for a film starring a major superstar like Shah Rukh Khan. More so when it was given a big release of 3500 screens. The film could finish with lifetime business of around 85 crore, which will make it the lowest grossing SRK film since My Name Is Khan in 2010.

The overseas box office too isn't sustaining as well as it was expected to. A few countries like Pakistan and UAE are holding up well, but others have shown bigger than expected drops.

Overall, FAN has disappointed at the box office because the film was expected to perform at multiplexes. It was never a film that was meant to do well in the heartland of India, like Shah Rukh himself said, but even he would agree that it's the target audience (read moviegoers at multiplexes at Urban centres) who have rejected the film Saturday evening onwards.

Day     Fan     Growth / Drop Percentage
Day 1 (Friday)     19.20     -
Day 2 (Saturday)     15.40     - 20%
Day 3 (Sunday)     17.75     + 15%
Day 4 (Monday)     6.05     - 66%
Day 5 (Tuesday)     5.75

Fan First Tuesday Business
Wednesday 20 April 2016 10.00 IST
Box Office India Trade Network


Fan had a good hold on Tuesday as it was a holiday in parts of the country. The first five business of Fan is as follows


Friday - 18,75,00,000

Saturday - 15,50,00,000 

Sunday - 17,75,00,000 

Monday - 5,75,00,000

Tuesday - 5,50,00,000 apprx


Total - 63,25,00,000


Theis does not make much difference to the film as a larger drop is likely to come on Wednesday. The week will end at around 70 crore nett and the second Friday will determine the lifetime business of the film.

A role modelled on Gauri Khan
Updated: April 20, 2016 15:07 IST | Sangeetha Devi Dundoo
Waluscha de Sousa
Waluscha de Sousa talks about the high of making her film debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Fan'

The first reaction was that of surprise and the thought where had she been?' when we spotted Waluscha de Sousa on screen, playing Shah Rukh Khan's wife in Fan. "Everyone has been telling me that," laughs the model who once scorched the ramp. Waluscha waltzed into the modelling scene as a teen.

She was supposed to be the surprise factor, cast in a brief role modelled on Gauri Khan. Waluscha is relieved she can finally talk about the film, which happens to be her first. She has done a few ad films with Shah Rukh in the past, but this was a different ball game.

"I was looking and was told that if I manage to meet casting director Shanoo Sharma, there's a good chance of something working out. I sent her my photographs and waited. The call came out of the blue and I rushed to meet her," says Waluscha. In the next two days, she auditioned and went back, hoping something would come out of it.

Shanoo Sharma had sent the audition clippings to Aditya Chopra and Maneesh Sharma, who were on the look for someone pretty, could act, and looked confident to be a superstar's wife. "I was called to meet Maneesh and it was a casual conversation. Even then I didn't know about Fan. When they eventually asked if I'd act in the film, it was a no-brainer. I mean, why would I refuse a film with Shah Rukh?" she laughs.

On her first day on the sets, she was a bundle of nerves. She had rehearsed but got worked up and fumbled her lines. "We were shooting the scene were Gaurav walks into the house, I hug him and sense that he is an impostor. I was wearing a satin night dress and felt conscious, uncomfortable," she recalls.

Mobile phones were not allowed on the sets to keep SRK's Gaurav look under wraps. So Waluscha didn't have the option of calling her friends and sharing her nervousness. "I maintained a calm exterior but I was dying inside. It was nerve wracking. Shah Rukh was very patient till I got it right," she says.

Hers might have been a brief role, but Walushca was excited. "I liked the experience. My brief was to play a confident woman like Gauri. She's been Shah Rukh's backbone and she's seen him through ups and downs."

Waluscha watched Fan with family and friends who kept cheering her. "For my kids, I had become an overnight star," she says.

There was a time when she had moved away from modelling, after her marriage to Marc Robinson at 19. "I did what I felt was right, devoted all my time to bringing up the kids. I had put my passion on the backburner. But after things turned out the way they did, I had to pick up my pieces and move on," she says, referring to their divorce.

Now, she's eager to be a part of the film industry. Occasional modelling assignments will continue. "A few designers have been my close friends all along and I'll walk the ramp for them. I'm going to Dehradun where Rocky S will be showing his collection," she trails off.

So reading Shah's interviews seems like he's happy with the outcome of the filmBig smile And that's all that matters to me. If you guys remember, during HNY promotions itself, Shah had mentioned a few times that he expected both Fan and Raees to not go the same way as his other movies.

And he said he's doing another movie with Maneesh which will start next yearDancing

Let's just be happy that Shah is happy with the results. Who knows, babe might just pick up the national award for this role. All will be forgotten by then.Embarrassed

For now, him and the fam are apparently off to London for Aryan's big graduation dayParty

After having watched the movie, I feel sad for SRK, such a brilliant performance and public has not watched it. The movie should have worked, its well made and holds your interest. So the only plausible reason is promotion. Damn YRF and AdiAngry I have myself told more than 20 people that SRK movie has released and majorly public is unaware.

Not that this might be a reason, but Shah did mention in one of the interviews during promotion that he had been hearing people say how the trailer had so less of SRK and more of the new guy. And he was like some people seem to not even be aware that I'm also the other guy.
