Sultan continues to garner outstanding television ratings

Salman Khan’s Sultan, one of the most watched movies in theatres last year, is on a phenomenal run on television. The film has garnered 47,06,000 television viewership ratings, even though it was aired for the 6th time on television.

The total number of people who have watched the film on television has crossed the 4.5 crore mark, which is in addition to more than 3 crore people watching it in theatres.

While we await the television premiere of Dangal, Sultan is currently the most watched film of 2016

The BARC Viewership ratings for the 7 airings of Sultan is as follows:

  • First –  1,13,10,000
  • Second – 60,85,000
  • Third – 55,66,000
  • Fourth – 48,64,000
  • Fifth – 98,02,000
  • Sixth – 47,99,000
  • Seventh – 47,06,000


  • Good thing about Sultan is that its based on multiple sport types.
    Indian style wrestling and foreign style ring fight.
    Its kept the interest alive throughout the movie.

    And also the songs were good and I still hear to ‘bulleya’, 440 volt, jag ghumeya , etc.

  • Salman Khan Is To Varun Dhawan Shahrukhan Is To Ranveer Singh While Aamir Khan Is To Ranbir Kapoor So Let Just Be Prepare For The 3 Of Them But Ranbir Will Be Great


  • Though a big Akki fan but at the same time a big bollywood fan, bahubali and robot 2 is going to give serious threat to bollywood, And only bhai can save this industry before it becomes from national to regional…

    Hope tubelight and TZH to gross minimum more than 100 crore from what bahubali and robot 2 gross worldwide respectively….

    And next year TOH and Drawf to continue the trend and take the collection to new heights…
