The advance booking for Sultan has opened today and the initial response is historic, to say the least. At many places, the tickets of Wednesday were sold within few hourse.
The best start has come in Mumbai and Delhi where most of mat/evening shows are sold out. In CI,UP and Bihar Sultan 1st day is going to beat lifetime collection of all films released this year. Even a class circuit like West Bengal is having a record advance in the initial hours. The single screens for Wednesday are almost full in Kolkata while multiplexes are around 25% so far.
Not only this but the advance for Thursday is also very strong so far which is surprising. A huge crowd was reported outside cinemas this morning. We have never seen that kind of craze on the first day of advance booking.
This has become the best advance this year within few hours. None of the films released this year had very good or excellent booking. Fan was good considering non-holiday release and Housefull 3 was average. Until Tuesday night, Sultan is going to become historic in recent times.
Sultan will also have a solo run at the box office with no competition from regional or Hollywood. Thus it is going to get a record number of shows at most of the multiplexes.
Overall this is a terrific start for Sultan advance booking. Trade pundits are saying that film has surpassed their expectations by taking a huge advance. By taking a look at the initial response, a huge opening day is on cards. And if Eid falls on 6th July, then it is going to shatter all opening records.
