The movie "Sultan" is likely to cross Rs. 300 crore box office collection in India by the end of its fifth Tuesday. The Salman Khan-starrer has made a total collection of Rs. 299.90 crore at the domestic market till date (by the end of fifth Monday).
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and said that current trends suggest "Sultan" will cross the Rs. 300 crore mark at Indian box office on Tuesday, Aug. 9. This will be Salman's second film, the first being "Bajrangi Bhaijaan," to make over Rs. 300 crore in the domestic market.
Apart from "Bajrangi Bhaijaan," only Aamir Khan's "PK" had entered the Rs. 300 crore club. "Sultan" had a record-breaking opening weekend at the box office and continued to do decent business in the following days as well.
Having made a collection of Rs. 16 lakh on its fifth Monday, "Sultan" is most likely to make a business of at least Rs. 10 lakh on its fifth Tuesday, which will help it cross the total collection of Rs. 300 crore at the Indian box office.
Released on July 6, the sports drama was produced by Yash Raj Films. It will be YRF's first film to cross the Rs. 300 crore mark. "Sultan" will be Anushka Sharma's second film after "PK" to have achieved the record figure, making her the only Bollywood actress to have two Rs. 300 crore movies in her kitty.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, "Sultan" had a five-day long opening weekend, owing to the Eid holidays. The film had received positive response from both the critics and the audience. It has been regarded as one of Salman's best movies till date.
