‘Sultan’ featuring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma in lead roles was much hyped even before its release. The film was highly awaited by the masses, and the first day collections of the film have been phenomenal all over. The movie is not just based on wrestling but is in fact also a love story as a whole. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, ‘Sultan’ garnered loads of advance bookings. Bajrangi Bhaijaan star Salman who is credited with blockbusters has yet again broken several records with this release in India and overseas too.
The film has scored huge in places like Gulf, UK, and Pakistan but being a midweek release the film didn’t live up to expectations in some places. The main markets business were as follows: In US / Canada – $500,000, UK – £265,000, Gulf – $1,350,000, Australia – A$153,000 and Pakistan – $325,000.
Despite the mid-week release, the film has managed to collect huge at the Box Office overseas. It seems in coming days, Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma’s Sultan is all set to break many records in overseas.
The film has done an amazing business thanks to its advance bookings and Eid release. Because the movie released on a national holiday in India, it garnered more audiences at the screens.
