The box office collection of Salman Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer "Sultan" has slowed down worldwide after finishing its three-week run. "Sultan" has now grossed Rs. 412.31 crore at the domestic box office and Rs. 155.83 crore at the overseas box office.
"Sultan," which is the biggest blockbuster of 2016 until now, entered its fourth-week run on a slow note. The fourth Friday and Saturday's collections were less than a crore; however, the business witnessed a good growth on Sunday minting Rs. 1.51 crore. The nett 26-day domestic box office collection of the film stands at Rs. 296.86 crore.
"Sultan" is inching towards Rs. 300 crore mark at the domestic box office, but the low collections in the start of its fourth week hints that it might not be able to touch the mark. However, trade analysts are positive that "Sultan" will touch Rs. 300 crore mark by its fifth week run.
"#Sultan witnessed ample growth over the weekend, despite a big release [#Dishoom] + limited screens... Is nearing ₹ 300 cr mark... contd," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, adding: "#Sultan [Week 4] Fri 57 lacs, Sat 98 lacs, Sun 1.51 cr. Total: ₹ 296.86 cr. India biz. ATBB."
"With the current trend of collections #Sultan will cross ₹300 crore mark India in its 5 th week. @BeingSalmanKhan @yrf @SultanTheMovie," distributor and exhibitor Raj Bansal tweeted.
Meanwhile, at the overseas box office, "Sultan" is all set to dhobi pachad Shah Rukh Khan's "My Name Is Khan." The Salman-starrer minted $ 23.09 million until now, while the lifetime overseas income of "My Name Is Khan" stands at $23.5 million.
