It definitely is a lack of promotion and marketing. Because a lot of people weren't aware or clear about concept and the double role confused them. Because majorly its a good story and exceptional concept, with an amazing performance. Anyway what matters is that its earned accolades and SRK looks extremely satisfied because he knew what he was doing. He's been in the business more than we think and know so yeah Embarrassed

Just to justify. 

The film's budget was already at 85 cr without the promotions 

Promotions were 20 Cr.. if im not wrong..  He visited some sets like Kapil's show, Aap ki Aadalat, Sa Re Ga Ma etc.

So thats what they felt required..Jabra song is the key commercial way to promote.

But its okay, we win some , we lose some.

I am not saying they did zero promotions but the volume was inadequate since the whole idea of promotion is to make public aware and if they are NOT then clearly its lacking.
Whatever media they use whether TV, Radio, print, banners, posters etc, it should WORK.
The young college going crowd is not aware. Who will fill the multiplexes? FAN was not meant for kids.Ouch

I love this girl so much. The way she talks about Shah, the things she has to say about it...I agree with everything. And FINALLY, someone who agrees with me and thinks SRK's best performance was Dil Se.Day Dreaming

yeah but i think they already knew that its more of a content film thus WOM would be the key.
But some people had alot of problems with the storyline. 2nd half not good, it was boring for some since no song etc.. So basically it was very niche..

as of now, we can only break even..

For a niche film, for a different concept and for lack of marketing Fan is still doing really well. Box office records aren't always the last say, some movies and stories are for more then that. Anyway worldwide the movie shall do well. Movie might not be up to the taste of the masses here. There's still time for that. Smile

Its a niche film and SRK knew that promotions or no promotions...not everyone is going to watch it...and that is the reason that FAN was not promoted the way an SRK movie is promoted normally...its not for everyone...Tongue

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.


Does anyone else feel that Waluscha...resembles Gauri ?LOL

Me. And my sister said the same after watching the movie. In fact, the I was squirming through all the house scenes because it felt too close to Shah's personal lifeLOL But yeah, it was very much based on Gauri.

Have you spoken to Gauri Khan?

No, I haven't had the pleasure of talking to her. I do know her socially, but we haven't really sat down and had a conversation.

Did you not talk to her to prep for the role as you played Shah Rukh Khan's wife in the film?

The thing is Maneesh (Sharma, director) talked to me a lot about Gauri being a strong woman and that she and SRK have a lot of love between them. He took me through their journey and how Gauri is completely in love with him, and is also the backbone behind everything. When I had to play this character I had to keep in mind that the two are tremendously in love with each other, and stay strong through difficult times.
