While fans are waiting for "Sultan" to create box office records, Salman Khan's last Eid release "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is still running in theatres. "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has taken the Hong Kong box office by storm.
The film, directed by Kabir Khan, completed the six-week run in Hong Kong and has earned HK$ 1.3 million till now. "#BajrangiBhaijaan crosses HK$ 1.3 million in HONG KONG... Week 6 - Total till 3 July 2016: HK$ 1,305,379 [₹ 1.13 cr]. SUPERB! @Rentrak," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" became the biggest grosser of 2015. The film minted over Rs. 320 crore in its lifetime run from just India market and from the overseas market the film accumulated Rs. 165.96 crore. After creating records in India and in the international market, the film is now earning good money from the Hong Kong box office.
However, it is unlikely that Salman's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will shatter the records of Aamir Khan's "PK" at the Hong Kong box office. "PK," starring Anushka Sharma and Aamir, minted HK$ 6.5 million (Rs 6.57 crore) from the Hong Kong box office.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" features Salman, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Harshaali Malhotra and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles.
Meanwhile, Salman is all set to rewrite box office history with his upcoming release "Sultan." The film, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, will be released on July 6 (Wednesday) worldwide during the Eid al-Fitr holiday. "Sultan" advance booking has already received a phenomenal response and now the film is set for a huge opening at the box office worldwide.
