Sultan, the name is enough for now days in bollywood industry, as the film was released on 6th July 2016, with the most entertaining and the super actor of Bollywood Industry, Salman Khan who is always comes in a new avatar on the big screens, and this film is just hit the box office by its huge collection and had just give a kick to all the records which was present earlier in the Indian Film Industry.
Sultan, of course, had the advantage of being a solo release over a five-day weekend, what with the film opening a day before Eid on Wednesday instead of being a regular Friday release.
Interestingly, the global collection for the film has really done well, which comprised of places in the Middle East, Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand. As per reports, the overseas box office collection for Sultan tolled to around 13.50 million, which is somewhere, 90 crores to be precise. With this, the Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer would be yet another biggie of theirs to enter the 200 Crore Club. It has now set the record at Rs 180.36 crore, which no one will probably manage to beat this year. Sultan 7th Day Collection is expected to be around Rs 19-24 Crore.
The following day, on Eid, there was a hike in numbers Rs 31.67 Cr due to the holiday.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Rs 129.77 crore) held this record since last Diwali. Salman's film extended the margin between itself and PRDP on day 5.
The figure makes Sultan the highest weekend grosser of 2016 so far.
As you read this, the Yash Raj action entertainer will cross the 200 crore mark easily.
Aamir's Dhoom 3 also started big, but fizzled out eventually. It crossed the opening weekend of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (Rs 32 crore) and Mary Kom (Rs 28.32 crore) on day one itself. It has collected in excess of Rs 91 crore (gross overseas figures), which is higher than Airlift's collection of Rs 47.60 crore (gross overseas figures). The sports-drama film is now touted to be the highest grossing Bollywood film in terms of opening weekend collection worldwide.
