Sultan can be called Salman Khan’s dream project. The actor is very ambitious about the film and has left no stone unturned to give his heart and soul to the film. The actor has done everything from drinking green tea to maintain his voice quality to putting his health at risk by bulking up to play the role of a wrestler. The actor has largely avoided body doubles and performed immensely risky stunts and action scenes all by himself in the upcoming flick. The actor has broken box-office records earlier with super hit movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan. However, it appears that the actor has decided to break his own records this time with Sultan.
The actor along with Yash Raj Films has decided to leave nothing to make this flick a huge success. They have been booking for the movie almost all the theatres across the country. Apparently, the makers have booked nearly 5000 screens as of now. Although we do not have a confirmed statement, the news can be quite a possibility! And if this happens, Sultan would have the widest Bollywood opening ever in India!
Salman’s last Eid release, Bajrangi Bhaijaan was the one to have the widest Bollywood release in about 4500+ screens. However with about 5000, Sultan would break its records even before it releases.
This is what our trade pundits have to say about the news…
Amul Mohan, Trade expert said: “Sultan will get about at 4800-5000 screens. But it isn’t confirmed as yet.”
Exhibitor and distributor, Akshaye Rathi revealed “The film will get more than 4000 screens. In fact even more than 4500. It might have the widest release ever too. We will come to know the exact number by Monday.”
Sultan is believed to break all past records in the premiere week itself. Right now the opening day record is held by Happy New Year (Rs. 44.97 crore) and the highest opening weekend record is held by Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (129.77 crore). Although the amount seems to be really huge, our experts believe that Sultan would break all the records easily.
Now that we are wishing great luck to the movie, you must also not how Salman’s fans are excited for the movie.
