Alia Abbas Zafar’s wrestling based romantic-drama Sultan has completed its first week (extended) at the box office. In this 9 days week, Sultan has broken every possible record. It has now reached to Rs 229.16 crore in its kitty and becomes 6th all time highest Bollywood grosser.
On its 9th day, when every other film used to get towards downfall, Sultan has held steady. Although, for the very first time of its entire duration, a single day collections got down below 10 crore range but then it is filmy Friday and Great Grand Masti has found some screens at the major circuits.
Sultan has collected Rs 9.52 crore on Thursday, that is a brilliant sign for the makers. The very important thing to note down is that Sultan has not seen any big fall out as usually does in weekdays. From Monday to Thursday, Sultan has nurtured Rs 48.80 crores, that is something beyond the thinking.
From day one of its release, there have been so many records left behind by Sultan and yesterday too, it had got past to the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chennai Express (Rs 227 crore) and become 6th all time highest grossing Hindi film.
