After beating Aamir Khan’s “Dhoom 3” at domestic box office, Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer “Sultan” dropped heavily on its 3rd Monday which is not a good sign.
The wrestling drama has already collected Rs 289 crores after 19 days which is superb but competition from Rajnikanth starrer “Kabali” is proving futile for “Sultan”. The film which tells the story of a fictional Haryanvi wrestler fell considerably on 20th Day and managed to mint only Rs 1.30 crores. The total has reached to Rs 290.35 crores. Now the question on everybody’s mind is whether “Sultan” will be joining the 300 crores club making it only the third film in the history of Bollywood to achieve the feat after “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” and “PK”.
Whatever be the outcome in the coming days, one thing is for sure that “Sultan” is all-time blockbuster considering the collections both in domestic and overseas market.
