​Shah Rukh Khan starrer Fan has seen a good opening weekend. The film has collected 52.35 crore in its first three days and though the growth from Friday to Sunday hasn’t been phenomenal, the collections are still fine. Of course, a Shah Rukh Khan film is expected to do much better than ‘just stay’ in theaters, which means it would be quite crucial for it to do well during the weekdays.

​Before the release of the Maneesh Sharma directed film, there were quite a few speculations around how far it would eventually go. Numbers like 175-200-225 crore were thrown around, but that was never a practical scenario as Fan is not the kind of Blockbuster material that enables a film to hit a double century.

​However, with a superstar at the helm of affairs, there is a bare minimum expectation at the least, especially when a film has taken good time to hit the screens.

The film has done well to enjoy the record for the highest opening weekend of the year, hence surpassing Airlift [44.3 crore] and The Jungle Book [40.47 crore]. However, this isn’t saying much since these are the only three films that have seen a universal opening of sorts all over.

It is also a given that Fan would set the record for biggest first week too, hence going past Airlift [83.5 crore]. The real fun though is its progress towards the lifetime collections. Now that’s one countdown which is set to be super-interesting.​

Note: All collections as per production and distributor sources

        • Salman and SRK are both superstars, no doubt. But Salman would never have the guts to make a film like FAN. He can only do his ghissa peeta stuff. Few superstars have the guts to play themselves so realistically as SRK has done in FAN, and also play a maniac fan. It is a big risk. Even then film will be a hit. Congrats to SRK for being a superstar who is finally breaking the formula.

      • nitin bhai ye paagal to bhartiy bhi nahi hai inhe kyaa pata ki acting kyaa hai srk kyaa hai ins puchho ki srk se jyada hit filme kisne di isski filmo se bollywood ko kitna fayada hai ye paagal to seerf dharm ke naam par seerf rajniti karte hai inse puchho ki baat dharm ki hi hai to akshay bhi to (bhatiya) seekh hai woh konsa hindu hai na jane ye rss vhp ka zahar desh se kab khatm hoga inko maabaap ki itni chinta nahi jitni srk ki hai

    • Fan has done awesome outside your nation. You indians like shitty films. Good films cant even earn 100 crores.
