Sultan box office collections set to soar to near Rs 80 cr mark by day 2

After a phenomenal opening day collection and evidently an even better Eid day (day 2), we can foresee the Salman Khan juggernaut obliterating many records to roar to a resounding near Rs 80 cr figure. Mission impossible? Possibly, but the betting is in Salman Khan's favour.

After a phenomenal opening day collection and evidently an even better Eid day (day 2), we can foresee the Salman Khan juggernaut obliterating many records to roar to a resounding near Rs 80 cr figure. Mission impossible? Possibly, but the betting is in Salman Khan’s favour.

While Sultan opening day collection was as high as Rs 36.54 crore and that too on a working day – it was supposed to release on Eid day (July 6) but then the day was shifted to 7th July thereby affecting the earnings considerably. Predictions for a holiday collection on opening day was as high as Rs 40 crore.

As far as day 2 is concerned, the thing going for Sultan is that today (Thursday) is a holiday and crowds are streaming in huge numbers to the cinemas. As happens with normal releases, while Friday (being a working day) is good in terms of earnings, it is invariably trumped by the collections on Saturday and Sunday.

With Eid in full swing, the day one collection is likely to be beaten hollow. Cinemas across India are reporting theatres running at full capacity. In this scenario Sultan collections are going be in the low Rs 40+ cr region.

This can have two consequences, one being that Sultan may well score an all-time high record in terms of just day 2 figures and over and above that its 2-day total may well scrape through to near the Rs 80 cr mark. It is unlikely to cross it, but a total anywhere near that number will burnish Salman Khan’s star no end – establishing him as the man with the golden touch.

Needless to say, for that to happen one most crucial factor has to be working in Sultan’s favour. And that is word-of-mouth booster shot. On the strength of personal reviews by those who have seen it and liked it, then their praise to their friends and kin will go a long way in making Sultan a super-hit film.

While that is also true of top actors Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan, Bhai has a style all his own that is inimitable. Salman, with Sultan,  has proved unerringly again that he has who has his fingers on the pulse of his fans and the masses at large too.
