If the first day’s numbers are any indication, then Shah Rukh Khan is going to make life difficult for the other big Khans of Bollywood. Shah Rukh’s latest release Fan opened with Rs 19.20 crore collection on its first day, and is taking the box office by storm. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the film’s business figures.

In a way, Shah Rukh is in competition with himself as his previous film Dilwale collected Rs 21 crore on its first day. However, the strong buzz around Fan can take its total collection way beyond Dilwale’s total collection in the long run.

Salman Khan is still the mightiest Khan at the box office in terms of total collections in last two years. His Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo were blockbusters beyond imagination.

However, the game is poised now because all three Khans have one release left this year. While Shah Rukh will be seen in Raees, Salman and Aamir are looking forward to Sultan and Dangal.
