Rs 250 crore in just 4 Days: Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ is ‘Unstoppable’ at box office.



New Delhi: Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer ‘Sultan’ is rewriting the rules of Hindi film business. The movie which was released a day ahead of Eid is doing wonders at the worldwide box office and has managed to gross a whopping Rs. 250 crore at the worldwide box office.

The worldwide box office collection includes Rs. 142.62 crore nett (Rs. 198.08 crore gross) domestic income and Rs. 56.87 crore gross overseas earnings. The Salman Khan starrer that earned Rs 105.34 crore in three days, continued its historic run on Saturday as well, smashing records left, right and centre.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adrash shared the ‘Sultan’ collections on Twitter.

With such humongous figures, ‘Sultan’ has become the biggest grosser of 2016. It has surpassed Akshay Kumar’s ‘Airlift’ that minted Rs. 128 crore on the box office.

The third spot is occupied by Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 3 with Rs 107.70 earnings while fourth in the list is superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan at Rs 85.00 crores.

Expected First Weekend Earning?

Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ is very likely to cross the mark of Rs 180 crore as far as net business on Indian box office is concerned. As the movie is enjoying five days extended weekend, ‘Sunday’ would be crucial.

Sultan, which was released on July 06, broke the records of all previous movies which were released on the occasion of Eid in terms of day 01 earnings. The movie, however, failed to surpass the first day collection of Salman Khan’s last year release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.

Now, it would be interesting to see if ‘Sultan’ would be able to break the lifetime collections of Salman’s own ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and Aamir Khan’s PK.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan also features Anushka Sharma, Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh in key roles.
