Buzz of Sultan is increasing day by day as film is gearing up for release. As first half of the year is coming to an end. Sultan will start second half of the year with bang.
Trade, exhibitors and audiences all are simply waiting for the film. Films are rescheduled or postponed to move away from Sultan clash at Indian Box Office. Even heard that film is getting free run in places like Pakistan and that also on EID. In Gulf also film is scheduled to get biggest Bollywood release ever.
It is almost certain that Sultan will get atleast 9 days of solo free run. In Indian heartland free run is of 16 days. Which is big in today's time. Audiences will have literally no other films to see except Sultan. This is mainly due to that exhibitors only want to showcase Sultan in cinema halls.
Early estimates suggest Sultan will release atleast in 4000 screens in India alone. Screen count may go as high as 4500 screens or even may be more. In Overseas also film is set to get wide release.
Many in trade is expecting no less than humongous 130-140 crore nett business in first 5 days. Few optimist is expecting even 150 crore nett in extended first weekend which is never heard of earlier. Film with bad content is also expected to do business in the region of 200 crore nett. If content is liked then it will give a big shot at 300 crore mark. This is the optimism of trade.
As Hindi film business is going through lows at box office. It needs a big boost from film like Sultan. Currently even Hollywood films have gone ahead of Bollywood films in India in 2016. All that scenario need to be changed and soon. Hope Sultan sets the record straight.
So, wait is finally coming to an end as Sultan is getting release in another 7 days time.
