“Sultan” starring Bollywood superstar Salman Khan got a bumper response at the box office on the opening day and industry experts predict it will do a business of Rs 150 crore over the five-day weekend.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said the film has earned over Rs 40 crore on Wednesday, which was day one of release. He tweeted that final numbers are yet to come up and it will only get better from here for the wrestling drama. Adarsh predicted a “historic” five-day weekend for the film.
“The film is doing extraordinary business across the country. The opening is like hurricane. Everyone is loving it, be it the story, the songs and Salman, of course, is a treat to watch in Sultan,” Indian Express quoted distributor Akshay Rathi say saying.
“The film is doing exceptionally well in North India like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab,” he said. Rathi predicted that the sports drama film will do Rs 150 crore business,” he added.
Another film distributor, Rajesh Thadani said, “The film has opened really well, just as expected. It will make record breaking collection in its weekend which will be around Rs 150 crore.”
Both Rathi and Thadani feel even though Sultan leaked online, it will not affect the business of the Dabangg star’s film.
