Dangal Vs Sultan Vs Fan Advance Booking Comparison

2016 was a dull year for Bollywood films at the box office as most of them struggled for initial. One one film Salman Khan starrer Sultan managed to get bumper opening while others were in excellent to good range.

Below is the comparison of advance booking for all major films of 2016.

Note: These are the ticket sales for the whole first weekend. Sultan had a five day weekend.



Ticket Sales


23.1 Cr
Partial Holiday, Pre-Eid
15.50 Cr*
MSD Biopic
8.75 Cr
7.50 Cr
Partial Holiday

*Expected at the end of the day

Sultan had a partial holiday but it was also released one day before Eid which means the business in Muslim dominated circuits was affected as they booked tickets for the next day. MS Dhoni The Untold Story advance was excellent too however it was due to the corporate bookings.

The advance ticket sales for Aamir Khan's Dangal will be the second highest of 2016 despite being released on a non-holiday. It is huge considering that Dangal does not look commercial like Sultan. Overall Dangal is set to be the second highest opener of 2016.

  1. Now 30 crs is on as most of the markets where it can get strong are walk_in customer markets.
    Day1 min- 27 crores
    Day1 max-31 crores
    And remember all this on non-holiday and despite demonetization effecting it in single-screens!!

  2. Non holiday still fighting with sultan..
    But wait for life time sultan ka band bajne wala hein bhaya.

  3. dangal 350 dont give stupid excuse dangal 300 cr bhi nahi karegi crap n Copy cat Film.

    1. Tu bhi to bhojpuri bando ko samja..
      I will stop fighting...why they r not appreciating Dangal..only bakwas against dangal...tu pahle sallu ke fans ko samja..aukat to nahi ATHG dene ki
      aur megastar bolte hein..

  4. Only DANGAL!! SULTAN is too little infront of DANGAL.. ( content wise) . And it's a fact.. DANGAL suru ho gaya......

  5. I also like Aamir but truth is people go watch his movie coz of he choose good content and he is good actor but other truth is he is having lack of stardom which salman have and to do movie in two year is very disappointing he should do more movie otherwise people will lose interest on him

  6. Is baar DANGAL shayad 300 cr nahi kar payegi us ka sab se bada reason yeh hai ke CHRISTMAS aur NEW YEAR dono SUNDAY aagaye hai jo AMIR ko extra holiday milti thi woh is time per nahi milegi aur iski waje se 100% 25 to 30 cr ka loss hoga, jaise ke PK and DHOOM 3 ne in holidays ka advantage utaya tha is time yeh DANGAL ko nahi milegi SAD

  7. Sultan and Dangal are altogether diffrent films while Dangal is a biopic Sultan was a Fiction And more than wrestling it was a MMA film
