After Salman Khan’s comment on feeling like a like a raped woman triggered protest from several quarters including the National Commission of Women, the makers of Sultan have apparently decided to keep the promotional activities of the movie low key.

According to the reports, “Salman and his leading lady, Anushka Sharma, were supposed to visit various cities to promote the film. However, with the controversy attracting unsolicited attention, the makers want to skip a few city tours and limit Salman’s appearances at promotional events so that he doesn’t have to face awkward questions from the media,” the insider further elaborated.

Meanwhile, the film’s spokesperson said that the stars are promoting “Sultan” on reality shows, which was always the plan adding that nothing has changed. The daily’s source, however, said that the team is going ahead with the promotional campaign carefully and has decided not to go overboard with it. Salman has urged his family to desist from making any comments on the issue. He doesn’t want the issue to take the focus away from the film.

  2. AUR KITNA ADD KARE SARE NEWS CHANNEL PER SULTAN KE PROMO AUR KAI CHANNEL PER JAKER SALMAN PROMPTE KER RHA HAI AUR KITNA PROMOTION CHAHIE LAGTA HAI BOLLYRENA KO SULTAN PER BELIEVE NAHI HAI.

  3. Looks like Subir has done lot of research on salmans movie with quality and improvements. Tell me a movie of Salmans past 6 years ,which was of great of quality and improvement over previous one except Bajrangi Bhaijaan. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he did Prem Ratan Dhan payo which if u think was of great quality and improvement of cinema ,than GOD save bollywood. Also by the way his upcoming movies also had Dabang 3 as well in the list which according to u may be the landmark movie of bollywood and improving indian cinema. Only actor who I see work on the improvement or doing something different is Aamir khan and Irrfan khan.
    Srk, Hrithik,Akhay, Ajay have those talent and they experiment as well but they need to be intelligent with the choice of script and directors consistently.
    Salman has never come out of his comfort zone to do a movie. Last movie of Salmans brave attempt was 13 years ago with tere naam and phir milenge. I am pretty sure doing south remakes has saved his career since 2009 and continued with ready,bodyguard, jai ho, Kick so there is a less chance he will leave that masala genre to disappoint his dedicated fans.

    • Looks like as compared to subir, u hv researched more about Salman! He is doing the kind of movies he likes, people are watching and enjoying it and so it is collecting! If u got issues with him not experimenting, no1 cares mr advisor cum expert analyst!

      • Buddy , Movies are not always about the collections. If collection is the only criteria for a movie then Dilwale and Dhoom 3 collected 400 and 540 crores worldwide ,but I will anyday prefer watching swades and rangeela compared to above shits. Who am i to judge salman and advise him to choose his scripts. You pseudo fans can never digest the facts about Salman. I replied to the statement made by Subir that stated Salman is caring about the quality and improvement of Indian Cinema, which I think is bullshit. Here hollywood is dominating the Indian Cinema since past 1 year and you just rejoice with the collection of your boring non actor on festive solo release while bring and cursing his counterpart actors movies. I never criticize Salman because I also go to watch his movie with my family for entertainment, he has his own persona and screen presence. But please don’t glorify his acting and his contribution to the quality of cinema. He has been a legendary hero who has entertained indian public through is unique screen presence and has been serving indian cinema since past 27 years.

  4. Sultan songs,dialogues are being showed in every news channel and salman is also promoting sultan in srgmp(for every viewers) and comedy shows, and in cartoon network(for children) and also in other places……
    Saare channels mein Song and promo chal hi rha hai , pro kabbadi mein bhi promotions chal rha hai, daily soap mein bhi hone waala hai ab kya chahiye yaar

  5. @Rocky : Just saw ur comments…Let me tell u 1 thing is that who is in this world does not copy other,s movie…Everybody does it n Salman bhai has utilized his talent to the maximum advantage n his movies minted moolah at the box office due to nice script,star power n luck…In ur last comment,u were a bit tensed regarding Salman bhai,s doing of quality movies…Let me clarify Salman bhai has been gifted with extraordinary talent from the above,the scripts of Wanted,Dabbang,Kick,BB r fantastic to say the least n it has captivated the audience to a larger extent…Sultan is n awesome script delivered by Ali Abbaas Zafar…Even the censor board has cleared the movie without any cuts…The storyline is n excellent one…If u r interested in watching Salman bhai,s movie than i suggest plz go n watch Sultan…See bro in today,s bollywood content n extraordinary WOM matters…Looks to me Sultan has delivered on both fronts becoz the director has put the storyline above everything else in this movie…Salman bhai,s upcoming project called Tubelight is n outstanding script based on 1962 India China war…Quite confident Tubelight will be a smashing hit next Eid n would be good enough in shutting up people,those who doubt Salman bhai,s movies…See bro doing criticism is always easy but when it comes to deliverance in Bollywood movies,particularly in recent times that there is nobody who execute thier plans to perfection n doing justice to thier talent…Looks like our Salman bhai doing quality movies has ticked the boxes with aplomb…Before concluding,would like to say something to u is that if u dnt like Salman bhai,s movies,dnt waste ur hard earned money n time in watching Salman bhai,s movies…That way u wont be able to comment anything negative about our megastar…Salman Khan is a brand,success,tiger etc…Hope u got my point bro…Take care ?

    • Bro, I understand your love for Salman. I was not criticing Salman. I simply replied to your point that he is caring for quality. Tubelight scripts looked interesting, but still the movie has 1 years to release to be able to know the quality and execution.
      You are talking about fantastic script of Salman and giving credit to him. How can you say about scripts of Wanted, Dabang , Kick being fantastic. These movies were blockbuster because the south masala remakes had just started. Do you think Ready, Bodyguard would be blockbuster if release now. No way. WOM is spreading fast you can imagine. Its just like Alice in the wonderland was a blockbuster in hollywood in 2010 because of newly introduced 3 D tech. Now take a look at it sequel(Alice through the looking glasses) its a disaster.
      Wanted was a carbon copy of pokiri from actions scenes to dialog. You are giving credit to Salman?
      Dabanng script was not different but I agree execution was good and credit to Salman to bring the lovely Chulbul pandey character to the screen. Dabanng (2010) I liked it thats the reason, I left it out to mentioned list that in the last 6 years he did’t do something different apart from BB.
      Kick was nothing special with script, Ravi teja was more entertaining in the original. Salman did his same larger than life character but the Devil character was no way near to the chulbul Pandey.
      Ready,Jai Ho, Bodyguard were also bad with scripts and execution was never better than the original. Ready was atleast entertaining. Dabanng 2 and jai ho were destroyed by his great brothers directions.
      Ek tha Tiger was a big hit but not a great flick to boast about it.
      Bajrangi bhaijaan was one of the finest movies in bollywood I have seen in past 5 years because of the nature of the role,execution,scripts and acting. Emotional scenes were the heart of that movie for that i will give credit to Salman and Kabir.
      Then came PRDP which was disappointing since I have been a great fan of Sooraj Barjatyas since his MPK,HAHK,HSSH,Vivah which I have watched numerous times.
      Now coming to Sultan, since you are mentioning as if u have seen the movie and providing the WOM.
      I don’t require your fake WOM(since looks like you are big fan of Salman) to go for that movie. I have liked the trailer and will go for that movie. Script even though looks a bit similar to CDI, but still Salmans hardwork and dedication is there in the trailer and requires a watching.

  6. AUR DASHING RAJ BHAI PURI BJP AUR GOVT KA SUPPORT HAI LAGTA HAI BJP SALMAN SE U.P ELECTION MAIN PERCHAAR KERVANA CHAHTI HAI TAKI MUSALMANO KA VOTE MILE ISLIE JO MUSLIM BHAI ISS FILM KO DEKHENGE WO BJP KA SUPPORT KRENGE.

    • Ha yaar….
      Listen everyone i have only heard this news (may be rumour)so please don’t misbehave by seeing my question only friends you can tell me this is right or wrong but very gently….
      I have that salman is having the support of modi govt so that his all cases are in pending because they knew salman has already loose all the cases….
      Guys this is only my question(I am not against salman) and I am here to clarify that this is only a rumour or truth…..

      • THIS IS TRUTH DASHING RAJ CONGRESS KO SUPPORT KARNEWALE SALIM KHAN JEE NE JAISE HI DEKHA MODI KI HWA BAN RHI HAI UNHONE SALMAN KO MODI SE MILNE KO KHA AUR SALIM JEE NE TO MODI JEE KI BHAKTI MAIN URDU MAIN WEBSITE WANWA DI AUR SUBAH SHAAM MODI JEE KA GUNGAAN KARTE HAIN NAHI TO SALMAN KABKA JAIL KA ANDER HOTA AUR BJP SUPPORT NAHI KER RAHI HOTI TO RAPE WALE COMMENT PER KISI BJP KE LEADER NE COMMENT KYON NAHI DIYA.ACTUALLY MODI JEE SALMAN AUR AAMIR DONO KE STAR POWER KA USE KARNA CHAHTE THE PER AAMIR KE STATEMENT KE BAAD UNHONE AAMIR SE KINARA KAR LIYA.

  7. @Rocky : One thing i forgot to mention that ETT was a blockbuster movie in it,s time…The script was a nice one n Salman bhai delivered on that one also…Salman bhai has worked with some great directors in the form of Aditya Chopra,Kabir Khan,Sooraj Srivastava etc n Salman bhai,s movie under this famous director,s banners has earned him accolades,recognition n fame throughout the world n also delivering blockbusters after blockbusters 1 after another…Hope u got my point bro ?

  8. @Rocky : Bro,just saw ur comments a few moments ago…Looks like to me u r n avid,keen watcher of movies n ur analysis is nothing short of perfect ? Keep up the good work bro…U must admit that Salman bhai is the most dedicated,committed,hardworking Icon of Bollywood…Gems like Maine Pyar Kiya,Saajan n Hum Aapke hai kaun r still fresh in cinegores mind till date…U have harped on the fact that our beloved Salman bhai is a non actor…Quite surprised n taken aback in ur last comment…If our Salman bhai is a non actor than his could he have survived 27 years in Bollywood as one of the titans n pillar of our industry n minting moolah with each n every movie which in turn leads to blockbuster or ATBB…Recent Performances shows this trend…For God sake,dnt underestimate Salman bhai,s acting qualities…From leading producers,directors n actors of bollywood,everyone is going gaga over our beloved Salman bhai…Hope u got my point bro…Have a great day ahead…Take care bro ?

    • Sorry buddy,
      if u felt hurt when i called Salman non actor, but that was for the reply for Mayraj which pissed me off and wanted to give him back. Yes I am movie fnatic and watch all kinds of movie from all languages across india and world with different genres and content. I was a fan of SRK and Salman since childhood and that time did’t used to analyse movies that much. But once u watch hell lot of them, that experience will make u critical of the same movies from your favourite actors. There are other actors who are also dedicated and very hardworking and also needs to be appreciated. I sometimes still don’t understand our own audiences taste in which movies like swades, Dil se , Andaaz apna apna , khamoshi, 1947 earth, Dil chahta hain, Fiza are average or flop. It all depends on the time where a particular genre movie release and how audience like it. Now a days biggest worry for bollywood are the fake negative comments which fan of different superstars spread it on different social platform . This will hamper only the bollywood where number of ticket sales are decreasing every year. We are nowhere near Chinas film market which is increasing at the rate of more than 30 percent. Hollywood has started dominating the bollywood this year with Jungle book earning 185 crores inspite of the clash with FAN. Marvel and DC movies are already a hit with audiences. We need to start supporting our industry and appreciate different movies across different genre be it comedy, thriller, dram ,action or even fantasy.

  9. @Rocky : Bro,i forgot to mention one thing about the script of Sultan…Looks like Sultan has got a touch of rocky elements in it…Have u watched Sylvester Stallone,s Rocky…That was one awesome movie…Changing track,must say that I agree 90% of what u have written in ur last comment…But I beg to differ with u on the non acting part…Otherwise ur last comment was spot on…Totally agree with u is that quality matters,not collections…Just say our bhai has been lucky in recent times,is getting quality scripts n nailing it at the box office…Best wishes to the entire crew of Sultan for thier super success of Sultan this Eid…God bless u bro…Take care ?
