Sultan 8th Day Box Office Collection: Sultan released with high expectations and the film exceeded every single one of them. As the film became the fastest film ever to earn Rs 200 crore, it is also marching towards other milestones. Below is the complete Sultan collection report for the 2nd Wednesday.
Sultan is showing a decent hold on weekdays. The film is steady so far with the drops that can be accepted. According to the official figures, Sultan 8th day collection will be 10.82 crore.
Sultan has shown good trends so far. In fact, except Monday, the film’s performance has surpassed all expectation. But the trend is not on par with big blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Dhoom 3 and PK mainly due to the extraordinary extended weekend. North India is solid so far however a continuous drop can be witnessed in Bengal, Mysore, Gujarat and somewhat in Mumbai too. Whether this drop is due to post Eid or language barrier, we will get to know soon in the second weekend. Sultan is a mid-week and pre-Eid release which was a partial holiday. Thus it is not possible to track Sultan collection at night and a difference comes in trade and producer figures.
Sultan 8th day collection is again a good result with less than 15% drop. The positive word of mouth has helped the film to maintain the pace after Monday. Sultan box office collection in 8 days will be 219 crore. It is about to cross lifetime collections of Kick and Chennai Express within 9 days. It will soon become 4th highest grosser of all time but the real task will be to beat top 3 grossers Dhoom 3, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and PK.
The second weekend will decide where Sultan is going to load. There is no doubt that Sultan will have better performance as compared to new release Great Grand Masti. The online leakage of GGM means it will not hurt Sultan collection at all. It will also have a solid hold in the North Indian markets. However, the hold should be pan-India to get a big number and to beat top grossers. Sultan has now emerged super hit at the box office.
Note: From now on Sultan collections will be updated at 9:30 PM every day like other releases.
