The special screening of Sultan was held yesterday for Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan. This is the first time producer Aditya Chopra has made an exception, considering he politely refused Salim’s request to watch Ek Tha Tiger before its release.

“It’s also one of the most gripping films of Salman’s career,” says Salim Khan, Salman’s father, who had the privilege of watching the film before its release.

Ask Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar and he says, “What Salim saab said after seeing the film, gave me immense confidence. He said, “You’ve been able put more on the screen more than you put on paper (in the screenplay).’ Coming from a writer of his stature, that was an immense boost for my self-confidence.

The film’s running time clocks in at 2 hours and 50 minutes, making it the longest film in Salman’s career in recent years. Of the film’s length, Ali says, “Not for a minute would the audience feel it is watching a lengthy film.”

The pic tells the story…Quite impressed with the storyline so far…History will be rewritten at the box office this Eid…Even Salman Khan,s father Salim Khan sahaab has been mighty impressed with his son,s performance n the storyline n also credited the director of the film Shri Ali Abbas Zafar for making such a nice,quality movie ? There r lots of rumours n negative publicity doing the rounds for the last 1 week or so which might affect Sultan…News for all haters out there,these kind of negative publicity won’t affect Salman bhai,s upcoming flick in the form of Sultan…Instead Sultan will churn out to be the ATMB movie of the year…So haters think 10 times before taking on the undisputed king of box office n bollywood…It won,t affect Salman bhai n Sultan…Best wishes to Salman Khan,Anushka Sharma,Randeep Hooda,Aditya Chopra n the entire crew of Sultan for their record breaking show this Eid ?
