Shah Rukh Khan’s FAN fails to impress fans; struggles at box office

Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is no less than any hit machine, is losing luster in recent times. The ace-actor’s recent film, ‘Fan’ is one such example.

Despite receiving fair critical acclaim, the film failed at Box Office and is struggling to cross Rs. 100-crore mark. After two weeks of its release, FAN has managed to collect just Rs 82.95cr at the Bollywood box office.

The same happened with Shah Rukh Khan’s previous film, ‘Dilwale’, where despite the presence of Bollywood’s most loved pair of SRK-Kajol, the film struggled against Ranveer-Deepika starrer ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

Previously, King Khan’s movies like ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘HNY’ generated over Rs. 200 crore with ease.

However, industry pundits are in wonder after the failure of ‘Fan’ at the Box Office.

Interestingly, Shah Rukh shifted the release of his much awaited film ‘Raees’ to next year, which shows that somewhere and somehow the actor is also in a shock after the flop show of ‘Fan’.
