Shahrukh Khan starrer Fan, has failed to reach the expectations of the audiences, and the box office collections are dipping drastically as the days pass by. It's surprising to see Shahrukh Khan, who commands a huge fan following across the country is struggling to cross the 100 Crores mark in revenue.
When people are questioning why Fan, despite all the hype and expectations it created before its release has failed at the box office, Shahrukh Khan, has a different story to tell. The actor, blames the absence of 'songs & dance' in the movie which led to it's poor performance.
Shahrukh Khan, was quoted as saying to PTI,
"It's not a film that heartland audience (masses) will like. But we took a chance thinking hopefully they will like it, but they need song and dance. I am not unrealistic".

So as per Shahrukh Khan's views, the lack of songs and dance in Fan, has led to its failure at the box office. Shahrukh Khan, further commented as,
"While we were making Swades, I had told Ashutosh Gowariker that hope you know this film will not make much business as the other (more commercial) films do. But he had the guts to make a film like Swades with a star like me. I think this is what we should celebrate. When a new kind of filmmaker comes, and makes something different with new people as he doesn't have access to others (stars), I really appreciate that. I think it is more appreciated when an established director, producer, star does something unusual like Fan".
The total box office collections for Fan until Tuesday (Day 5) is 64.15 Crores. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted as, "#Fan fails to grow despite part holiday on Tue. Fri 19.20 cr, Sat 15.40 cr, Sun 17.75 cr, Mon 6.05 cr, Tue 5.75 cr. Total: ₹ 64.15 cr."
