Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sultan box office collections have been flying high for the last 5 days and today, which is Monday, they have come down closer to earth. After notching up an above Rs 30 cr tally for each of the 5 days days since its release, Sultan 6th day collection has fallen to under half of that to Rs 15.54 cr. However, this figure is no mean feat, most movies usually disappear from the B.O. charts within the first 3 days or turn into single-digit non-entities.
This big number gives rise to some questions. Who watched the movie in such numbers to generate this kind of returns on the first day of the working week (Monday)? Considering that it was a Monday, one can only surmice as to who all played truant from schools and offices to run down to the nearest cinema and catch Salman Khan at his best in Sultan movie. The numbers therefore, must be massive in terms of manpower loss for corporate bosses; as to how much impact this must have had on productivity, we won’t even hazard a guess.
Be that as it may, Sultan box office collections by day 6 have reached a massive Rs 195.90 crore. The overall amount itself in India alone has ballooned to Rs 272.08 cr. If we add the foreign count to the total, we have a massive Rs 364.08 crore figure.
Salman Khan himself has taken to Twitter and posted his reaction to the tremendous response from the public: “Thx for appreciating sultan.”
The trend is likely to be downhill now with each passing day registering a lower figure, but if Sultan manages to stay in double figures for the rest of the week, it would obliterate a number of other records left standing.

Where do you see Salman Khan movie, tell us:
In a recent interaction, Anushka Sharma gave a glimpse of how it felt to be a part of the Salman Khan show: “‘Sultan’ has been my most difficult film till now. It was challenging for me physically and emotionally it was tough. I had to understand the emotions and maturity that probably I don’t posses in me right now. Also, learning a sport, changing my body type and waking up early in the morning, going for training and then learning wrestling…. I was working like a robot. But today when I am getting this kind of appreciation from people I feel grateful. All the love people are giving me because of the film, is special. I feel all the hard work has paid off.”
