Which actor can beat Salman’s 100 crore distributor share record?

Q. Can Anyone beat Salman’s 3 back to back 100 crore distributor share record (which would become 4 back to back after Sultan). And what will be the opening of Sultan on Holiday?

A. Records are meant to be broken. About 3-4 years ago, 100 crore (net) was a massive achievement. Now, it’s no big deal. With increase in the number of multiplex screens and ticket prices, 175 – 200 crore will be more easily achievable in the near future. So 3 back-to-back 100 crore distributor’s share, shouldn’t be difficult to achieve in a few years from now. Aamir might achieve the same record with the release of Dangal. He already has two back-to-back 100 crore domestic share films (Dhoom 3 and PK). As for Sultan releasing on Eid holiday (certain now, otherwise YRF would’ve announced a final date if they were not targeting Eid holiday), it should record the highest single-day and opening day collections. The target would be 45 crore plus, but a total of more than 40 crore looks certain.

  • Salman is on a dream run right now,Aamir will surely break it but then again Salman has SULTAN which looks like another 100cr+ distributors shares.

  • Aamir will break it with DANGAL but Salman with SULTAN that should be 4 back to back,the buzz of of this film is really huge the sky is the limit for this film opening especially on Eid.

  • This has been an interesting year so far . We have seen Airlift, Neerja, K&S, TJB, Ki & Ka, Baaghi, H3 and UP . On the other hand we have also seen Fan, Fitoor, Rocky Handsome, Azhar and Sarbjit . Sultan will be the 1st event movie of 2016 . Salman has been on a terrific record since 2010 and now how will audience react to Sultan will be exciting . It is releasing on Eid so opening day collections will be huge and also the weekend . The real story will be on the weekdays . If Sultan is similar to Dabangg or better than it can create a huge impact on the lifetime collections . If it is a typical Salman movie than it will not do more than 250 CR+ . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What Salman is achieving today is absolutely magnificent. But as time will pass (with increasing screens and ticket prices) it will get easier to achieve these landmarks.

    So records being made today will get easier to break let us say 10 years down the road. Like when Ghajini had crossed 100 cr in 2009 it must have meant a very big moment then but 100 cr today is very much achieveble.

    Speaking overall and do not mean to say that every record will be broken easily as you also need guys like Khans, Akshay, Ajay, Hrithik to bring the audience in the theatres.

  • So a dumb bhai fan (quite obvious) asked a silly question comparing his idol with legends and trolled badly by indicine.

    How could they consider Salman a successful star when he has struggled for most part of his career giving disasters on regular basis before South movies came to his rescue and he began churning out one crap after the other.
    Even now he may be successful but he doesn’t command the respect other stars command because of his substandard movies and his court cases.

  • Highest Opening day Record which is currently held by Salman Khan PRDP (39cr) will be broken by none other than the Megastar Salman Khan himself for SULTAN…!! No one has capacity to break his records…

  • Yes Aamir sir has every chance to give 3 back to back 100cr distributor share movies. But till then Bhai will have 4 movies (with SULTAN) to his account.

  • Tiger- the real king- Nov 2 2015- 1:56 pm- ” Happy birthday to choosa hua aam !!! ” I have not seen a man who abuse a man on his birthday.u couldn’t be a human being, u r an animal.doob maro kahi jakar !

  • It ll be 4 with Sultan and Definetly 5 with Tubelight.. Back to back 100 cr is diffrent and Back to back 100 cr Distributor share is diffrent.. he is In his Own League..

  • everyone has record of HIS OWN.jist like how THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD gave BACK TO BACK 11 CLEAN HITS,that no one till now couldn’t give.

    THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD SUCCESSIVELY GIVEN HITS IN EACH YEAR FROM DEBUT except 1996,2005,2009,2016(highly unlikely).

    and many more such records…this puny record 3 100cr share record all because of EID which will be broken soon.

    salman only gives blockbusters only in EID,whike KING OF BOLLYWOOD HAS GIVEN RECORD BROKEN ATBB ON EID.no comparison of Bollywood’s 2ND flop giving actor given 40cr disaster,30 lakhs nischay with THE BADSHAH OF BOLLYWOOD please,rofl.

  • Some of the actors cant give 3 consecutive 100 crores movie…indicine u are talking about distributer share….when it happen with other actors salman will give 150 or maybe 200 crores distributors share

  • will it be possible to collect 45 crore nett in India without the help of collections from Manipulationpur in a single day ?

  • The last 58 films of Salman have 1348.43 crore distributor shares, 60..96 cr footfalls ,2464.26 cr nett , 4347.91 ww gross (boi updated record).

  • Extremly Nonsense question @Everybody knows that with increase in TP share will increase and 100 cr share will be easily getable like 100 cr inside 1st weekend
    @indicine I’m amazed how could u answer this one?sorry to say But FLOP show from Ur side @Indicine
    some of the questions were complete nonsense & some questions were not answered properly means the answer they deserved were not given

  • Calling Akshay bigger as far as box office opening consistency is concerned is fair even though nt expecting anything more from you and won’t ask why the big star will open 7 crs Against a superstar Hrithik? but calling Varun ahead of Ranbir is another joke is it because of Dilwale? Jeez Indicine you guys are so blind how can Varun be bigger than Ranbir?

  • Set to give his fans a taste of variety, superstar Shah Rukh Khan has revealed his three upcoming on screen avatars– a dwarf, a guide and a warrior.
