Sultan is a juggernaut which refuses to stop. The Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma film has earned a gross of Rs 320 crore at the box office and is still going strong. The net profit of Sultan in India is Rs 236.59 crore at BO and the international figures for the film are yet to come in. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that the film is akready Salman’s second biggest hit ever, having left Kick behind. The big question, however, is if it can breach the Rs 300-crore mark in net domestic business.
Based on Sultan’s box office collection, Salman is already Bollywood’s numero uno. On Thursday, DNA reported that a top TV channel has offered the actor Rs 1,000 crore deal for the satellite rights of his next 10 releases and appearances on the channel. This will reportedly include Kabir Khan’s next film Tubelight and Raj Kumar Santoshi’s as-yet-untitled project.
Overall, the movie fared well in mass centers but witnesses poor numbers in the metros and multiplexes. The movie has lost a big chunk of its audience due to its online leak. As per the early reports, Great Grand Masti 1st day collection will be in the range of 4 to 5 crores. The first box office collection is quite less than its previous part Grand Masti which collected 12.5 crores.
Sultan remained the first choice for the moviegoers despite the release of two new movies. The number of screens has now been reduced to 2300 as compared to last week’s 4350. The movie witnessed the overall occupancy of around 35% on its second Friday, lowest in 10 days. As per our estimates, Sultan 10th day collection will be in the range of 7 to 8 crores.
