Salman Khan's "Sultan" has already started making records. Its trailer was released on May 24, and has crossed 1 lakh likes on YouTube in just three days.
The trailer of Salman's upcoming movie became an instant hit with over 70 lakh views on YouTube on its third day. While the number of views is increasing rapidly, the most striking thing about the video is the number of likes it has been receiving.
With over 1 lakh likes already, the "Sultan" trailer is definitely one of the most-liked Bollywood trailers on YouTube. Other most-liked Bollywood trailers of recent times include Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan." Directed by Rahul Dholakia, "Fan" had its trailer released on Feb. 29 this year and had received over 1.7 lakh likes on YouTube.
The "Fan" trailer has also received over 13,000 dislikes till date, while the "Sultan" trailer has been disliked by a little over 6,500 viewers. So, it appears to be a close contest between the two trailers in terms of the number of "likes" and "dislikes."
Another trailer of a Shah Rukh Khan movie, "Dilwale," is ahead of "Sultan" as far as "likes" are concerned. That trailer came out on Nov. 9, 2015, and has been liked by over 1.5 lakh viewers. But it was also "disliked" by over 23,000 viewers.
It will be interesting to see if the trailer of "Sultan" turns out to become the most-liked Bollywood trailer on YouTube, beating "Fan" and "Dilwale." Two other film trailers that appear in the list of most-liked Bollywood movie trailers are "Kick" (a little over 1 lakh likes) and "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" (over 1.14 lakh likes), and both starred Salman.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Sultan" presents Salman as a wrestler and also features Anushka Sharma. Being one of the most awaited movies of 2016, the film will be released on Eid this year. Check out the trailer of "Sultan" here:
