Though Monday was big drop for Salman Khan starrer “Sultan”, Tuesday and Wednesday box office collections are pretty stable.
This Friday, “Sultan” is definitely going to face the heat as it will face “Madaari” starring Irrfan Khan in Hindi Belt and a hurricane called “Kabali” starring the superstar Rajnikanth in the Southern region of India. That being said, Irrfan Khan is definitely a versatile actor but coming to the box office pull, his films depends on the word of mouth. Infact, this is first release as solo lead after “Paan Singh Tomar” which was critically acclaimed and also a box office hit.
Coming to the economics of “Sultan”, the wrestling drama managed to earn Rs 3.42 crores bringing a total of Rs 274.45 crores. “Sultan” is definitely an all time blockbuster but breaking the “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” record is out of question looking at the weekdays collection.
