New Delhi : Continuing on its spree to break box office records, the Salman Khan-starrer ‘Sultan’ has grossed over Rs 300 crore at the box office worldwide, crossing the life time earnings of the superstar’s earlier release ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, trade sources said today. The trade sources said Sultan collected around Rs 181 crores net in India, that takes its country's gross total to Rs 262 crore, during the Eid weekend. Also, the movie has collected Rs 58 crore (gross) from Overseas till Friday.
The worldwide collection of 'Sultan' now stands at Rs 320 crores+, which is more than Salman Khan’s 'Ek Tha Tiger'.
The figure is expected to go higher since the overseas figures are still being updated. The film has already become the highest Bollywood earner in India this year as it surpassed the collections of the Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift (Rs 127 crore) in the first four days of its release itself. Earlier, with a box office figure of Rs 105 crore in three days, ' Sultan' had beaten the lifetime collection of Shah Rukh’s 'Fan' which had collected Rs 85 crore at the box office.
Salman's Eid 2016 release 'Sultan' has been on a dream run at the box office, earning nearly Rs 40 crore on its opening day.
Produced under the Yashraj banner and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Sultan' is a biopic on the life of Olympian wrestler Sultan Ali Khan. The film features Salman in the lead role and Anushka Sharma as the female lead Aarfa, a wrestler and Sultan's love interest. It also features Kumud Mishra, Amit Sadh, Parikshit Sahni and Randeep Hooda in the supporting cast.
