This year’s Eid release Sultan is on its way to make new box office benchmarks on every passing day. Sultan 1st Monday box office collections have brought in a hefty amount of Rs 15.54 crore and reached it towards the whooping total of Rs 195.90 crore, which is just unbelievable.
Many big films in the past have failed to collect –this amount on its opening day, which Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer have achieved on its first weekday. Generally, a film shows huge fallout on 1st Monday as this is the first busy day of the week, but Sultan has still hold really well and proved that only Salman Khan is not the reason for this mind boggling success.
Sultan 1st Monday box office collections remind us the statement of Ali Abbas Zafar, which he gave in an interview just before the release of the film. He said that Salman Khan’s hangover and huge fan following could bring the numbers only till the first weekend, after that if the story is good it will replicate the same kind of response in weekdays too and exactly that is happening now.

In Just 6 days of its release, Sultan has broken the lifetime collections of some biggies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ( Rs 188 crore) and Bajirao Mastani (Rs 184 crore) and Bang Bang (Rs 181 crore).
By the end of today, it will not only enter 200 crore club, but also gallop the lifetime totals of some other biggest Bollywood grossers like Ek Tha Tiger (Rs 198 crore), 3 Idiots (Rs 202.50 crore), Happy New Year ( Rs 205 crore) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Rs 208 crore).
Sultan is now 11th all time highest grossing Bollywood film and if all goes according to the expectations, it will take 7th position in this coveted list, which is a remarkable sight for the trade experts.
