    Shahrukh Khan's Fan box office collections fiasco: Strange are the ways of the audience: they are remarkably consistent, never respect brands or big names when they invest hard-earned money and time in a film, and are becoming increasing ruthless as movie-watching budgets spiral! Who will gamble big money on a film that looks unappetizing? And negative word-of-mouth is the last straw. What are we talking about? Fan. Of course, or more accurately reasons behind its fall despite all predictions of massive success - even the movie critics praised it to the skies. And yet, here we are discussing a huge U-turn in its (mis)fortunes. Check out the top 5 reasons, and they have nothing to do with the IPL, the word-of-mouth, or anything similar: (Image Source: Bollywood Hungama)

    1. Shahrukh Khan's Fan box office collections fiasco: As the 10th Yash Raj Films - Shahrukh Khan collaboration in over 23 years (Darr, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil To Pagal Hai, Mohabbatein, Veer-Zaara, Chak De! India, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and a small cameo in Saathiya), it mars a flawless record. Even Saathiya was a hit and Jab Tak… made it to huge success levels. But this awesome record has an explanation: all these films had a cerebral approach to audience-friendly entertainment of diverse kinds. This ensured good or great content, (often) brilliant music and a decent or better script! (Image Source: Bollywood Hungama)

    2. Shahrukh Khan's Fan box office collections fiasco: At the basic level itself, the concept of Fan was skewed: an observer calls it "too uni-dimensional to have a graph." While this is debatable, the adverse ways in which viewers have looked at the film is not. For example, how can a star like Aryan be so churlish to his die-hard fan that he tells him he is sending a car to bring him home but sends cops to beat him instead? And this because Gaurav has 'punished' a rival actor who had berated Aryan? (Image Source: Bollywood Hungama)

    3. Shahrukh Khan's Fan box office collections fiasco: Unless writers Habib Faisal and Sharat Katariya and director Maneesh Sharma originally wanted to make an updated (as in relevant to 2016) version of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's classic Guddi on a similar theme, there was really no point in writing the script itself, forget making a film that cost over Rs 100 crore and then expecting it to ride to huge profits only on the shoulders of 'two' Shahrukh Khan's, minus a heroine, a hit music score or basic entertainment! And since when has any genuinely talented filmmaker been dependent completely or primarily on a star rather than on his own creativity and passion? (Image Source: Bollywood Hungama)

    4. Shahrukh Khan's Fan box office collections fiasco: A truism that has been proved infinite numbers of times is that the "realistic"/different/ supposedly cerebral filmmakers always come a-cropper at making big, commercial movies. And when such filmmakers are additionally confused about which school to follow and make a concoction that is half-mocktail and half-cocktail, the crash-landing is loud and clear. A Raj Kapoor can make a Boot Polish, a Nasir Husain a Baharon Ke Sapne, but when a Sriram Raghavan attempts an Agent Vinod or an Anurag Kashyap a Bombay Velvet, they invite a catastrophe!

    5. In the end, the fan tells the star, "Oy jaanede, tu nahin samjhega (Forget it, you will never understand!)" This statement will ring true till banners stop relying on yes-men as sounding boards and stay firmly rooted to terra firma and know which project needs what kinds of filmmakers, budgets and and, of course, scripts? And that is the toughest thing of them all. (Image Source: Bollywood Hungama)

    he cant even act now making bollywood looks laughing stock in international arena. there're many talented actors in india strugling for opportunities becuase of the khan domination. i think the time is right for khans to retire & give opportunities for hindu actors to protect bollywood from getting distro.

      Some people work for money some for fame. Some does not care for stardom or figures. I have heard SRK saying over and over again about him being an entertainer and a performer. Lucky him he has a stage and people to support him.

          lol@you Nationalist, talented actors don't wait for others to retire they rather grab opportunities from others. just like khans grabbed it from Amithab Bachan and other great actors.
