Sultan first day collection: The grand nature of its debut in cinemas has put Salman Khan’s Sultan in a sweet spot. With mammoth collections, Sultan is in a position now even to challenge Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year – the final set of numbers is yet to filter in and Sultan has just started its B.O. run.

Sultan box office collections of Rs 36.54 cr just managed to scrape past the opening day of Dhoom 3 collections which were logged at Rs 36.22 crore. However, Sultan was not able to beat Salman Khan’s other recent movie Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which had logged as much as Rs 40.35 crore. Of course, Happy New Year collection of Rs 44.97 crore retains its supremacy at the top, for now.

Check out the data by Bollywood Hungama about the top movies under the spotlight:

Happy New Year – Rs. 44.97 crore
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs. 40.35 crore
Sultan – Rs. 36.54 crore* (this may go to the top or the third spot basis final numbers)
Dhoom 3 – Rs. 36.22 crore
Chennai Express – Rs. 33.12 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs. 32.93 crore

While that is the position of Sultan vis a vis the competition, how does it stack up against Salman Khan’s own earlier films?

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs. 40.35 crore
Sultan – Rs. 36.54 crore*
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs. 32.93 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs. 27.25 crore
Kick – Rs. 26.40 crore
Dabangg 2 – Rs. 21.10 crore
