As we all know Sultan is all set to release on 6th July. The makers targetted the Eid day as there were more chances for Eid to fall on 6th.
But the latest reports tells the other story. Today Eid moon has not been sighted in Saudi Arabia/UAE and they will celebrate Eid on 6th July. Usually in India/Pakistan, Eid falls one day later so here Eid will be on 7th July.
This means Sultan will be a pre-Eid release. It is also considered a great release date especially if the film is up to the mark. Sultan can take bumper opening riding on the star power of Salman Khan and later on Eid it will get a huge boost due to the festival holiday. However, the opening record will not be in the range then.
It is not confirmed yet when Eid is going to fall in India. There are few occasions when Eid was celebrated on the same day in India and Saudi Arabi. We would go for a 70:30 chance in the favour of 7th July Eid.
