Sultan completes 50 days in theatres

Bollywood megastar Salman Khan’s Sultan completed 50 successful days in theatres on 24th August. The biggest blockbuster of the year continues to lead the highest grossers of the year list, by a huge margin of 172 crore.

In other words, no film has even collected half of what Sultan did during the Eid weekend this year.

The Ali Abbas Zafar directed film is also the only universally successful film of 2016. We have had a film like ‘Baaghi’ which performed very well at mass centres and ‘Airlift’ and ‘Rustom’ that were excellent at multiplexes, but no other film except ‘Sultan’ has worked with every section of the audience.

Sultan was also Salman’s 3rd film in 12 months – Bajrangi Bhaijaan (17 July – 321 crore), Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (12 November – 213 crore including all versions) and Sultan (6 July – 301 crore). The combined collections within a span of 365 days was Rs 835 crore net from India – without including collections from the overseas box office.

  • Thats the power of the Sultan of Bollywood i.e Salman Khan. He is the ruler of Bollywood.

    Btw,Saw Sultan two times and wouldn’t mind seeing it again.
    If you don’t walk out of the cinema with a big smile on your face you just didn’t get it.

  • salman has dominated mass belt , even akki sir films collecting good money in multiplex . But u should admire salman films widely appreciated in multiplex as well as single screen . This is year only belongs to salman & akki .
    Akki needs universal film like robot 2.0 then surely his films will take good opening .

  • This year not good for Bollywood huge star like Srk & hrithik films didn’t work . Don’t forget to watch Shivaay & Dangal .

  • /* Sultan was also Salman’s 3rd film in 12 months – Bajrangi Bhaijaan (17 July – 321 crore), Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (12 November – 213 crore including all versions) and Sultan (6 July – 301 crore). The combined collections within a span of 365 days was Rs 835 crore net from India*/

    A big lesson for those morons who think multiple releases affect the collections of movies.

  • Adhoora hoke bhi hain ishq mera Kaamil Tere Bina guzaara Ae Dil Hain Mushkil
    “Tu Safar mera, Tu hi hai meri Manzil, Tere Bina guzaara , Ae Dil hai Mushkil….” 💕💖

    What a lovely lyrics 👌
    Dying to listen #AeDilHaiMushkil music
    Pritam 👍

  • I could have only seen Sultan thrice in theatre.
    Wanted to watch one more time!
    Certainly, I will buy a DVD.
    It’s a great motivational film.

    Myself a die hard SRK fan. But there are certain things that needs to be highlighted.

    Fan pk is absolutely right about the monopoly issue. No body has a monopoly on eid or for that matter on any weekend of the year. Every producer has the right to release their film on any date as per their will. But is this Salman’s fault that he gets a solo release on eid? If producer is willing to clash his/her film with a Salman Khan film, they are most welcome. Salman books eid in advance for his films because he has confidence in himself and the film’s content.

    Now coming to the highest grosser of all time. First and foremost get this fact right that highest grosser does not mean biggest hit. Salman’s biggest hit is HAHK while BB is the biggest grosser. Similarly SRK’s biggest hit is DDlj and not Chennai express. Infact the biggest grosser ever i.e. PK is not the biggest hit of Aamir’s career. It is Raja Hindustani.

    Also to get the biggest grosser today you need following things in your favor:

    1. Holiday period release with a huge star. This ensures big opening with inflated ticket rates
    2. Atleast three weeks of competition free run, if not then minimum two weeks.
    3. Universally appealing content.
    4. Last but not the least, favorable tax structure. This determines the gap between gross & nett collections.

    PK was the film that ticked all the boxes.

    It had highest inflated ticket rates for any film for the maximum period of time followed by Sultan and there was no entertainment tax in Rajasthan while Delhi sector had 20% tax only during PK times.
    By the time BB released tax structure changed. Taxes in delhi increased to 40%. Similarly in case of Sultan, Rajasthan started leving entertainment taxes. So despite BB having more footfalls than PK, it stood second because of the lower ticket prices and changes in taxes. On the other had Sultan has paid the highest taxes for any film as per BOI because now the tax rates are the highest. BB had the lowest average ticket rates among the three films mentioned.

    Infact as per BOI, BB will become the highest grosser of this decade by next year when inflation adjusted figures are taken into consideration.

    M an SRK fan (not a fanatic) and a huge admirer of his achievements. But cant turn away from the facts and undermine the achievements of other stars.

  • While some so called duniya ka sabse superstars movies are struggling to go past 80cr mark lifetime, Bhai movies are collecting 300cr and completing 50 days in theatres (and still running successfully).

    That’s the difference between MEGASTARDOM and tinystardom!!!

  • Rs 835 crore net from India ?? Whopping figure !!!!! It means it is almost x100 of Global superstar’s last outing or if we take Buddhewaale (145) + FAN (85) then its x3.5 times !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ”…..The combined collections within a span of 365 days (12 Months) was Rs 835 crore net from India…”
    Great Line!

  • This was the real parameters for movies earlier to judge its success. Silver Jubilee, Golden Jubilee, Platinum Jubilee not like hiring an old theater and running a movie for years where some people come to sleep and some youngsters come for goochi goochi !!!!!!!! Lol

  • Congratulations bhai. U r definitely a megastar but not an ‘actor ‘ yet. Ajay has 2 national awards and several films showcasing fabulous acting skills- Zakhm Raincoat OUATIM Gangajaal Company Drishyam etc but u r still an insult in d name of acting.
    anyways forget all these films. Just watch hddcs again. Ajay completely overshadowed u. It was his impeccable performance that made d audience suddenly change sides and root for ajay instead of u. Everyone felt heartbroken when u left ash at ur house in d climax but felt so happy and relieved when ash rejected u and ran back towards ajay.

    Accept it bhaijaan Ajay Devgn>>Salman Khan

  • Bhai is delivering 300cr grossers easily but our global king is hiding behind Alia bhat to touch 100cr mark..

    Too much funnnn!!!

  • We will be with him forever Salute to the BO Numero Uno & biggest Megastar of India today Salman Bhai as the no1 Superstar North to South East to West and every corner

  • So what
    Seems like indicine is becoming an agent of his PR team.
    U must also mention dat all his releases were in big holiday period.
    Even den prdp and sultan considering release period big banners hype were undeperformer.
    In ur words even 50cr single day was possible bt so sad to see dat even 40cr was not der.
    In non holiday same movie ld ve collected
    Bb-150 to 175
    Prdp -90 to 120
    Sultan -95 to 140
    Nothing else to add..Don’t know yy u always bark dat no other film has done even half and so..These line has become so repetitive in ur every article dat it seems stupidity act.
    And pliz post it..
    It’s entirely my opinion no offense to ny1.

  • Not only this, no other movie has even give an opening of 20cr, leave 25cr or 30cr mark…..Only Sultan gives a Bumper 36cr opening……

    Power Of Megastar Salman Khan…..

  • @Romance Zindagi : Akki and Ranveer are bigger than SRK in 2016. The most important thing matter is ‘IS/ARE’ not ‘WAS/were’ !!!!!!!!!!!! Come of out past shell else it will be doom for Global queen and her fans !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • it deserves. movie is really nice.

    Though I still don’t understand why indicine uses this Tag MEGASTAR for only Salman.
    not that he doesn’t deserves it, he OWNS it in True sense.

    but my problem is, why AAMIR is not called a MEGASTAR. He has everything from Biggest Grosser to Biggest Opener.

    If indicine is concerned about Only opening, or reach in smaller centers or fan Following., then SRK is also just as much as Salman in terms of Stardom.

    Or this might be the combination of both. but still AAMIR is Right Up there with Salman and he also deserves the highest praise – MEGASTAR.

    Yes Salman is in his own league in this era, but there was a time for 3-4 years when akshay movies were tearing RECORDS. in indicine would have called him megastar, I guess.

    I AM STILL SAYING that SALMAN DESERVES BEING MEGASTAR.

    But you just can’t Ignore AAMIR and Srk( yes his movies are UNDERPERFORMING so what, he still is the biggest brand, biggest fan following worldwide, his article and news fetches Maximum Traffic, his child is a superstar at a age of 4, just need 1 good movie). They deserve it too.

    what’s the point of Megastar when 2 superstars can challenge and even over take you at your Forte BOX OFFICE.

    ONLY BOX OFFICE DOESN’T DETERMINE MEGASTARDOM.

    yes Salman is Leading by a good margin but that doesn’t mean that AAMIR OR SRK are not even in the picture.

    All three Khans are MEGASTARS.
