As expected, the Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer ‘Sultan’ opened to full houses throughout the country yesterday. And not only did the wrestling drama manage to impress the critics and audiences all around the nation, it has also left a long-lasting impression at the box office. Oh yes, ‘Sultan’ now has the highest Day 1 Collection for the year of 2016 in Bollywood, overtaking Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Fan’ which stands at Rs. 19.20 Cr.
‘Sultan’ went on to collect Rs. 36.54 Cr on its opening day. However, despite a festive release, the movie failed to break the highest first day collection record which is still held by SRK starrer ‘Happy New Year’!
With Eid on its second day and an entire weekend in hand, ‘Sultan’ will definitely cross ‘Fan’s lifetime collections, and many even enter the 150 Crore club with ease!
Now that’s what you call the ‘Bhaijaan Power’!
