Salman Khan starrer Sultan took the box office by storm with massive collections. The film in fourth week stands with a collection of 297.90 crores at the domestic box office. Considering that the film is now slowing down, it seems unlikely for it to make it to the 300 crore club.
If one may remember, a similar situation had happened with Salman’s 2012 release Ek Tha Tiger that missed its entry into the 200 crore club. The film’s lifetime collections settled at 198 crores and failed to cease the opportunity of becoming the actor’s first 200 crore club film.
Sultan which has already been declared a super-hit is currently having lesser screens and is almost 2 crores away from the 300 crore mark. With this week having two big Hollywood releases of Suicide Squad and Jason Bourne, the film may not enjoy significant collections over the weekend. Next week will have the big releases of Rustom and Mohenjo Daro too.
If Sultan does manage the uphill task of making it to the 300 crore club, a touch and go situation, he will be the only actor to have two films in the 300 crore club.
Also, his star ranking at the Koimoi power index which is already at an unbeatable position with 1600 points, could rise to an even higher 1700 points.
