Sultan missed breaking the all time record of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo by around 2.75 crore and the big difference was in Gujarat / Saurashtra and UP where both of these sectors were 1.50 crore nett apprx each down on Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.


There were also gaps in Rajasthan, CP Berar and CI but these were more than compensated by South and West Bengal but that shortfall in Gujarat and UP proved too much. Gujarat, UP, Rajasthan, CP Berar and CI all behaved as Pre Eid and did not get the benefit the national holiday like a Punjab, Delhi city or Mysore.



The territorial comparisons of both films are as follows and the gaps in Mumbai and Delhi / UP are because of Gujarat / Saurashtra in Mumbai and UP in Delhi /UP.

Sultan managed to set three opening day all time records in East Punjab, Mysore and Odisha. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo had set eight opening day records but two of those have now been broken by Sultan. The 40 crore nett mark is looking a tough nut to crack though if Eid had fallen on Wednesday as expected earlier, Sultan would have cracked it.
