FANAA is a worldwide BLOCKBUSTER!!

Yash Raj Films’ latest offering ‘FANAA’ creates history at the box office. ‘Fanaa’ is the highest grossing film on the first weekend, in the history of Indian films. Fanaa’s magic has spread all around the world. 

All India collections (4 days): Rs. 22.79 crore – highest ever first 4 days collections

(These figures are without the film having released in the entire state of Gujarat) 

Its on its way to be the first complete universal hit(hit or better business in every circuit of India) since Gadar Ek Prem Katha. Even in Bihar where the hits are different from other circuits Fanaa has managed very good opening figures. In circuits like Bihar,Rajasthan and CPCI it will easily cross the business of Rang De Basanti. In Overseas it is set to be amongst the top five grossers ever and the biggest grosser ever for Aamir Khan.


Yash Raj Films has another feather in their cap with Fanaa as it enters the UK box office charts at “number 6”, grossing 

£ 414,835 in the first 4 days from 37 screens across the UK.

Critics and audiences are all calling Fanaa as yet another landmark film in the remarkable and enviable repertoire of Yash Raj Films. Fanaa reaffirms the Yash Raj Films Magic.

The 3rd film by Kunal Kohli after ‘Mujhse Dosti Karoge’ & ‘Hum Tum’, Fanaa is the highest ever opener for an
Aamir Khan starrer. 

Yash Raj Films bring back the much loved Kajol after her long hiatus and to further increase the magic, pair her opposite one of the finest of actors in India, Aamir Khan. 

The soundtrack had already become a huge success finding its place in people’s hearts. Their picturisation on the big screen has further enhanced the magic and generated unprecedented repeat sales. 

Fanaa became one of the most awaited films of the year and its release has justified the expectations of the audience and critics alike.
