Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘FAN’ had a great start in most parts of the country with 45-50 % occupancy on average at Multiplexes. The morning occupancy was lower than Dilwale but the number of screening is more. The opening in mass centres is average but that is expected as the film is devoid of music and certain other commercial angles. Even here though Dilwale had all this, it was hugely affected by the intolerance angle at that time and mass centres could not collect as they should have.
The key of FAN’s success will be will be that the presence of Holiday and most people can visit cinema halls and multiplexes all over the country and the mindblowing avatar of Shah Rukh Khan.
