Salman Khan’s much awaited Sultan” is set to release on July 6 and it is expected to break several box office records. The film enjoy will apparently enjoy a five-day-long weekend and trade experts predict that the film will have an “explosive” opening box office collection.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the release date. He wrote, “Yes, it will be a 5-day opening weekend for Sultan [Wed, 6 July to Sun, 10 July]… Get ready for a record-smashing weekend! Sultan advance booking for the 5-day festive weekend will start on Sunday, 3 July 2016 across India.

Another trade analyst, Girish Johar wrote. “Had said much much earlier…#Sultan on 6th July – 5 day weekend …. Expect nothing but HAVOC at the BO …it will explode,” he tweeted.

Komal Nahta said that he is expecting “Sultan” to make a collection of around Rs. 40-45 crore on its opening day itself. “I expect anything above Rs. 250 to 300 crore from ‘Sultan’ at the box office in its lifetime run. The opening day could be Rs. 40-45 crore because with Salman Khan, the sky is the limit. The buzz is almost unprecedented. The film should get the houseful board back in theatres not just in India but across the globe. The opening of film in Dubai (UAE) will be huge as well,” Nahta told Catch News.

“‘Sultan’ is a Salman Khan film. it is but obvious that there is a lot of noise about it in the trade especially because it is releasing on Eid day. The film has a lot of factors that will work in its favour. The expectations are sky high. The opening day numbers will be huge. We expect Rs. 40 to Rs 42 crore on the opening day, which will be phenomenal. The numbers can be higher too. In the last few years, movies have been released during the pre-Eid period. I don’t even remember the last film that released on Eid day. It is a Salman Khan movie, so numbers will definitely be big. The movie releases on Wednesday, so it gets a 5-day weekend. I hear that Monday will also be a holiday. I think the numbers that we will hear for the film after its release might be something we have never heard of,” Amul Vikas Mohan told the portal.

“Expectations are high because it is going to be a very, very huge opening. I am confident that the film will break all opening day records. The film is very hot among the trade and viewers. Salman Khan is the biggest star in India currently and the expectations are sky high. There has not been a good film in this industry for a long time. I think this film will cross Rs. 100 crore in the first three days itself. I think if the movie is as good as ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan,’ Rs. 300 crore will be a cake-walk. The biggest opening day number today is Rs. 40 crore (PRDP) and I think this film will definitely open above Rs. 40 crore,” opined Amod Mehra.

    • JODHPUR: The trial court in Jodhpur has given last chance to actor Salman Khan to prove his innocence in a case filed against him under Arms Act on July 5.

      The court on Tuesday also pulled up the counsel of Mr Khan for seeking time since past two hearings.

      Chief Judicial Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpurohit had taken the statements of Mr Khan on record on March 10 on his appearance in the court for recording of the accused statements, to which he had pleaded innocence.

      “On this, the court had given him an opportunity to produce evidence or witness in support of his plea of innocence on April 4”, said Mahipal Bishnoi, one of the prosecution counsel.

      But Mr Khan’s counsel HM Saraswat had sought more time from the court on April 4, after which the court gave him another opportunity on May 7.

      “Since then, the court has given him two opportunities but he failed to produce any evidence or witness in order to prove his innocence in the court”, Mr Bishnoi said.

      Now the court has given him a last chance to produce evidence in the court on July 5 in support of his innocence.

      Mr Khan had been prosecuted under Arms Act for allegedly keeping and using the fire arms with expired licences.

      On the other hand, the arguments in a case of poaching of two Black Bucks in Kankani on 1-2 October, 1998 continued in the same court today with the then forest officer (investigating officer) Lalit Bora appearing in the court.

      Mr Khan’s counsel Saraswat said that the arguments could not be completed and the same would continue on June 24. Mr Bora had been summoned by the court through a bailable warrant during last hearing in May.
