Salman Khan's "Sultan" has had a tremendous run at the box office and the romantic sports-drama film is still running in some theatres after 50 days of its release. "Sultan" is still attracting audience, adding more to its collection.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Sultan" has come up as the biggest blockbuster of 2016 with record breaking collections at the box office. It has now taken its earning to Rs. 300.45 core nett till Aug. 25 at the domestic market.
"#Sultan completes 50 days. Still in theatres. Total till 25 August: 300.45 cr. India biz. ATBB...50 days poster," Taran Adarsh tweeted and shared the poster that celebrates its 50 days run in theatres.
Having released on July 6, "Sultan" had a 5-day long weekend, making a collection of Rs. 180.36 crore nett at Indian box office on its opening weekend. The film's pace was exceptional and it was being expected that "Sultan" would break the lifetime collection record of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" as well.
However, its pace slowed down after the second week and the Salman starrer struggled to cross 300 crore mark. "Sultan" made a business of Rs. 277.96 crore by the end of week 2 and its box office earning reached Rs. 293.80 crore by the end of the following week.
However, the movie's fourth week collection was very slow as it could earn just Rs. 4.43 crore, taking its collection to Rs. 298.23 crore on completion of week 4. It managed to enter the Rs 300 crore club by the end of its week 5. Nevertheless, "Sultan" has made its name as one of the biggest blockbusters of all time.
