Sultan’s day 6 box office collection: The Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma film has done monumental BO business but Monday saw a marginal drop.

Sultan is proving to be a box office behemoth within six days of its release. However, the Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma movie saw a drop in ticket sales on Monday, as expected.

Sultan had earned Rs 180.3 crore by Sunday, which was the day 5 of box office business. On Monday, the film added a little over Rs 15 crore to its kitty, which is a good collection give it was a working day and the ticket prices went down. The total collection after six days is Rs 195.9 crore.

On Tuesday (July 12), the film is guaranteed to reach the Rs 200-crore club, according to trade experts. This will make Sultan the third Salman Khan-starrer in Rs 200-crore club after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kick.

On Friday, the third day of the film’s release, there was a minor drop in box office collections but it was still a very respectable Rs 31.67 crore. Despite it being a working day, the positive word of mouth kept the audience coming in.

Sultan had the highest earnings to report on day 5, which happened to be a Sunday. The movie earned Rs 38.21 crore, bringing the film’s total earning to Rs 180.36 crore.

The film, which has already broken way too many records, is now setting its sight high. Salman’s biggest hit till date is Bajrangi Bhaijaan whose lifetime earnings are Rs 316 crore.

Sultan is the biggest opener of 2016, the film has done the highest business of all Salman Khan films and it has broken all records of this year. With its four-day collections, it is already the biggest grosser of the year having eclipsed the lifetime collections of Airlift (Rs 127.8 crore) and Housefull 3 (Rs 107.7 crore).

The huge collection means that the film had already surpassed Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Rs 129.7 crore) and Happy New Year’s (Rs 108.8 crore) record on the fourth day to become the highest opening weekend grosser, before Sunday even arrived.
