Dull period for Bollywood continues this week as hardly any significant occupancy is reported in theaters all across country. New releases have failed miserably and already carry over films theatrical run is also coming to an end.
All eyes are now on Sultan which is releasing on Wednesday (6th July) on occasion of EID. Exhibitors and distributors both have high hopes from the film. Many expect the film to zoom past 200 crore nett mark. Few in trade even expecting it to be the next 300 crore film. Those who missed can check our box office prediction of Sultan.
Coming to Sultan, film is expecting widest ever release in India. Film is easily expected to get over 4000 screens across India. Final screen count may be as high as 4500 screens. Film is expected to collect 40 crore nett for first day or close to that or may be more. Film is expected to take historic start at box office and may create few benchmarks in coming days. Film will enjoy 5 day extended opening weekend.
As films are failing left and right and only 6 films emerged as successful in first half of the year. Hope Sultan starts second half of the year with bang and bring back smiles to box office in some style. With just 3 more days to go we can't simply wait for release of Sultan.
