Sultan release date is July 6; Salman Khan movie box office collections set to spike; here’s why
Sultan release date is July 6; Salman Khan movie box office collections set to spike; here’s why: Sultan release date has been announced by the filmmakers and that is Wednesday, July 6. With this move, it is clear, that the actor has ensured a huge boost to the box office.
The high court, in its verdict passed on December 10 last year, had held that prosecution had failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Salman Khan was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident and was drunk. The high court judgement had come on an appeal by the superstar, seven months after he was pronounced guilty by trial court of running over five people sleeping on a pavement outside a laundry in suburban Bandra with his Toyota Land Cruiser, killing one and causing injury to four others. On May 6 last year, a sessions court had convicted Salman in the case.(Bollywood Hungama)
Readers may recall that Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger, which was released on August 15, 2012, enjoyed a 5 day weekend. History is now all set to repeat itself with Sultan release, which again, will be having a mega 5 day weekend. In fact the film, which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, was initially scheduled to release on Eid in July. (Image Source: PTI)
However, now we hear that the festival is falling on a Wednesday, two days before expected. Hence instead of the original date of July 8, Sultan will now release on July 6.
In commercial terms, the five day weekend from box office perspective will allow the film to rake in more money, thereby setting up new records. Thanks to this new date, Sultan, which also features Anushka Sharma is expected to fare rather well considering the fact that the film is one of this year's most awaited and talked about releases and will now enjoy an extended five day weekend.
Maharashtra had said that the Bombay High Court had erred on two points while acquitting the filmstar. "Firstly, the High Court had erred in its finding by holding that there was 'erroneous application' of Section 33 of Evidence Act (relevancy of certain evidence for proving, in subsequent proceeding, the truth of facts therein stated) by the trial court," the Attorney General had said.
