Short Q&A Session is over now.
We will get back to you again after the release of Sultan. Till then take care and also write your feedback in the comments section.
Q. Bollyarena I have heard you have taken money from YRF for promoting Sultan?
Ans. LOL. During Dilwale and Fan, some said it is RCE’s website. By the way, do Sultan needs promotion from us? :-P
Ans. It is an open secret that no one in the industry can dare to challenge Salman or Aamir. Let’s say if Sultan or Dangal underperforms, there will be many to take Eid or Christmas period and will go for a clash then.
Ans. It will be tough considering a normal word of mouth. Still, the first two days can surprise as the advance is extraordinary so far.

Ans. We think you are Rajeev Masand or Anupama fan. Your opinion does not matter as there are many who loves these kind of films. The audience is not dumb and remembers movies are for entertainment. We will only request to make more universally appealing films.
Do you know Prem Ratan Dhan Payo had 3 weeks run in many theaters of CI and Rajasthan where it found appreciation?
Ans. Larger than life persona onscreen but down to Earth attitude towards fans offscreen.
And. MD will be around 2hrs 30 min. Rustom will also be short around 2hrs and few minutes.
Ans. It is always exciting to watch Salam’s film in the theatre during Eid. The cheers, laughs, shouting and dancing in the cinema are too damn high for a Salman film. However, I will not be able to watch the film over the weekend due to a very busy schedule ?
Ans. YRF has two big projects in their kitty. HR starrer Thug and Dhoom Reloaded. It looks like they will first move on to Thug which will be a franchise made on a grand scale having VFX of international level.
Ans. A quote from our article,
The best thing about Akshay is his consistency. He tends to do 3-4 films every year of different genres having a different look. Sometimes he has to shoot for 2 films simultaneously and promote the third. He does not care about holidays and release his films whenever he wants. He also brings a good mullah for single screens distributors and exhibitor. He is the hit machine of Bollywood.

Ans. Biggest superstar in India with a gentle heart.
Ans. We have been informed 6th July will be holiday even if it is not Eid. So it has a chance to beat D3 figure.
Ans. This will satisfy you. Read this => An open letter to the makers of Mohenjo Daro
Ans. It is mixed among general audience despite receiving positive reviews from critics. Songs like Baby Ko Bass Pasand Ha and Jag Ghoomeya have gained momentum. Bulleya can pick up after the release of film.
Ans. Sultan advance booking was started this morning and it is highest ever for the first day. The holiday factor also helped it. Even the exhibitors were not expecting that big turn around. Many reported that more people are at ticket counters asking for tickets of Sultan rather than watching the running films.
Ans. Kabali has been postponed to 22th July and now to 29th July. Madaari will not affect at all. Please don’t ask obvious questions.
Ans. We have rated both trailers 3.5. Both have done justice to their genre.
Ans. Only in limited theaters.
Ans. Ek Tha Tiger has many factors going in its favour. Salman and Katrina coming back together onscreen after their breakup. The film’s teaser and trailer both received the terrific response. I still remember the craze when the teaser/trailer of the film comes in theaters. People were dancing and shouting standing on their seats. Salman’s look in the film was loved by fans. We don’t think any film in near future can come close to ETT in terms of buzz. Maybe Dhoom 4 or Don 3 can outclass it.
ETT had 90-95% occupancy and Sultan can achieve 90% if it is an Eid day. Let’s wait for the official screen count.
Ans. We had few doubts regarding the genre and appeal of Dangal. But after reading portions of film’s script, we are putting our money on Dangal. The film is very much emotional and gonna touch your heart. It only needs a proper execution by the director.
Ans. No screening of Sultan is held yet except for Salim Khan which was kept secret. We will update box office reports and censor board report tomorrow.
Don’t believe in fake reviews or reports as YRF is unlikely to screen the film before Eid. So no one will be able to watch it.
Ans. With normal WOM, it will cross 150 crores even on non-holiday. Salman’s craze in unprecedented.
Ans. Currently trending at 42.2 cr. Final prediction on Tuesday. You can also predict and win free tickets for Sultan.
Ans. Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo collected 5 crores from Tami and Telugu languages. It was competing against Vedalam which had Earth shattering opening itself. Coming to Sultan, the buzz down South is missing. The genre and the anticipation of Kabali can be the reason. It would be a miracle if the film went on to cross 2 crore there on opening day.
Ans. With negative WOM it can wrap under 130 crore.
