Will Sultan Strike Big in China Box Office?

Sultan is all set to be the next Indian biggie releasing in China Box Office. Film is all set to release on 31st August, 2018. This will be Salman Khan's second film releasing in China after Bajrangi Bhaijaan. BB was a big success and hence expectations are big from Sultan.

Sultan is all set to get over 30k showings in China as things stands. Will it be able to get 35-40k or even more that picture will be clear by end of the day.

Earlier only Aamir Khan's movies did well in China. First it was PK, then historic result of Dangal and then Secret Superstar. In fact SS was the biggest opener in China by some miles. 

Apart from these films Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Hindi Medium also emerged as successful in China. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha managed huge showings and also opened big. But it fizzled out very soon. In fact film hardly collected anything in week 2. Baahubali 2 hardly collected anything after so much hype.

Here are some of the Bollywood/Indian films that did significant business in China. Have a look - 

1. Dangal -> $192 million

2. Secret Superstar -> $124.25 million

3. Bajrangi Bhaijaan -> $45.5 million

4. Hindi Medium -> $34.3 million

5. PK -> $19.5 million

6. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha -> $13.9 million

7. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion -> $11.3 million

The way things stands Sultan should easily enter the list of highest grossing Indian films in China. However, film real aim will be to go past $25 million mark. Film has potential to collect even big. 

To go past Bajrangi Bhaijaan mark film will need positive word of mouth to follow. In China film needs good word of mouth in long run. Good part is that film can collect big even in 2nd, 3rd or even 4th week. Only issue is film is facing Mission: Impossible - Fallout which will take huge opening in China.

Bollywood had made big inroads in China in last few years. This is thanks to a certain Mr. Aamir Khan who is now a big star in China. Salman Khan has made a big debut in China with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. If Sultan emerges Hit then he will easily be the second known face from Bollywood in China. Exciting times of Bollywood and India as a whole to make big impact in our neighbouring country.

  1. For me, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is number 1 because it broke the record of the first day of Dangal. Besides multiple releases + holdover titles posing stiff opposition, one must also consider the fact that Bajrangi Bhaijaan arrives in China after 30 months of its release in India, unlike Dangal and Secret Superstar that were released a few months after their release in India.

  2. Bajrangi Bhaijaan broke the life time of Dhoom3 in 2 days only.

  3. Bajrangi Bhaijaan kept a bad date like Sultan.

  4. Salman Khan was the first Bollywood Superstar whose debut film earned 100 crores in China.

  5. Bajrangi Bhaijaan also broke the record of Aamir's PK, which was Aamir's fourth release in China, while Bajrangi Bhaijaan Salman's first.
