Sultan's Box Office Opening Is Huge, But It Isn't Salman Khan's Highest


Salman Khan starrer Sultan, which released in theatres worldwide on Wednesday, has created quite a firestorm at the box-office.

The film, which has been garnering largely positive reviews, pulled in a huge opening but fell short when compared to Khan's last release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

As per trade analysts Taran Adarsh and Komal Nahta, Sultan collected a staggering ₹36.54 cr. on its opening day.

Adarsh had, however, predicted a higher figure.

The film had a wide release, running in more than 5000 screens worldwide.

However, the opening was not at par with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Salman's Diwali release from 2015, which had raked in ₹40 cr.

But as of now, it is the highest Bollywod opener of 2016.
