Sultan has opened to thunderous start at box office on Wednesday (1st day) in Morning Shows. Today is pre-EID and such opening is just simply mindboggling.
Despite EID declared for Thursday in India and that being National Holiday, Sultan has opened to Housefull shows from Morning itself on Wednesday. This is never heard of ever for pre-eid period. Sultan has reported an historic occupancy of around 70-75% in Early Morning and Morning shows. Occupancy is humongous considering today is working day (pre-EID) and also film is releasing in 4100 screens approx.
Advance Booking for rest of the day is outstanding. Many shows are altready Sold Out. Means film may deliver even higher occupancy as day progresses. Film has opened to packed houses in multiplexes specially in metros and big cities. In interiors occupancy is little lower still much better than all film released this year. In interiors also occupancy is on or above 60%. Single screens are yet to started and is expected to open full houses.
Sultan may have released on pre-EID. Despite that film is on its mark to collect around 35 crore nett for the day. If film shows huge response at ticket counters through the day then it may even give a shot at 40 crore nett mark. Simply extraordinary!
