While the naysayers were expecting Yash Raj Films' Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma and Randeep Hooda starrer, SULTAN, to fold up at around 250 crore (not that it would have been a mean achievement!), we were always confident about the film crossing the 300 crore mark, just from India, around the fourth/fifth week. And that is how it has been!
Coming to the numerical analysis, the Ali Abbas Zafar directed SULTAN crossed the 300 crore mark yesterday (Monday) and is still good enough to add a few crores more!
An interesting aspect is that it is the second triple century film for the lead pair. For the uninitiated, while Anushka has the highest grosser ever, Aamir Khan's PK, Salman Khan managed the second best grosser in the history of Bollywood, Kabir Khan's BAJRANGI BHAIJJAN, just last year.
Well, records are meant to be broken and we are sure that a Roshan, Khan, Kumar, Kapoor or Devgn will do the needful, before we bat an eyelid!
