Sultan’s director Ali Abbas Zafar earlier said, "The pressure, will Sultan touch Rs 400 crore… Will it cross Rs 500 crore, is it mounting? It’s not getting to me. I know Sultan gives me certain standing as a filmmaker. I also know what some great man said about success — that with power comes responsibility."
