Note: Sultan is going to release in just about 5 days. We will be sharing some of the records that Sultan has the potential to break.

We all know highest opening day record belongs to Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year. Salman’s PRDP come close to break that record last year on Diwali. Currently, only these two films have crossed 40 cr mark.

Coming back to Sultan, it is carrying extraordinary buzz and hype. The controversies like Arijit Singh apology or Salman’s rape women comment will have a zero effect on the collections as far opening is concerned. If the film released on Eid day, 40+ opening day is on the cards but it will be interesting to see how far it can go further. Some sources claim that Sultan is not a complete commercial film and mainly relies on the content. Eid is a big holiday still the word of mouth can play an important part in the evening. In that case, 40 cr will be considered as an excellent number.

However if the Eid falls on 7th July, then it will have no chance to break HNY record and will be targeting 30+ cr on its first day.

Check out the list of top 10 highest first day of Bollywood movies in India.

  1. No way Sultan can break HNY record as Day after Diwali is the biggest in India Holiday in India if you compare it to EID , just like christmas in other country and EID in Islamic country…

  2. The movie will break opening day box office of hny in Islamic countries such as Pakistan,use but will fall short in India…..

  3. Good game @bollyarena!
    On one hand u say that u didnt track the collections of hny so u got no explaination about how it did 44.97 on day 1! On the other hand u r comparing Sultan with a record u didnt track! Generating publicity? I guess u should stick to the movies which u tracked or else start giving explainations for records which r manipulated!!

  4. Not only HNY,s record in danger,each n every existing record will fall on the wayside due to the exceptional tsunami power of Sultan…Just wait n watch guys…Salman Khan,s movies r record breakers for the last 3 to 4 years during Eid time…Quite confident n positive about Sultan emerging ATHGOY guys ?
