Salman Khan starrer Sultan, has raked in massive amounts of money at the box office and the film is nearing the 300 Crores club mark. The trade experts have given out these facts and figures and Yash Raj Films has shown a much lower amount of money as compared to the tarde experts.
Fans of Salman Khan are upset with YRF and have started using the hashtag #YRFStopReducingSULTANFigures on Twitter to show their displeasure with Adiya Chopra's production house.
Usually film-makers end up spiking their box office numbers to a much higher collection, but YRF is doing the opposite as it has to pay the actor, if the film crosses the 300 Crores club as per a deal between the two.
A source close to the film was quoted as saying, "Their deal is such that if the film crosses the 300 figure Salman would get a big chunk of partnership. When Adi approached Salman for Sultan, the star was quite clear he wanted the same deal as Aamir Khan (for Dhoom:3) and Shah Rukh Khan (for Fan) got - a 80-20 profit-sharing ration. Adi had agreed because top stars like Aamir, SRK and Salman, rake in the big bucks. But showing lower figures means lesser profits for Salman. For Ek Tha Tiger, too, YRF stopped at the 199.6 crore-mark when everyone in the trade knew it had crossed the 200 cr-mark.''
It's been close to a month since Sultan has been released and the film is still going strong and steady and raking in good amounts of money into its kitty. Trade Analyst, Taran Adarsh had tweeted, "#Sultan collected Rs 15.84 cr in Week 3, taking the 3-week total to Rs 293.80 cr. Will have to remain steady in Week 4 to reach Rs 300 cr mark."
