You will not believe it but this just happened...
Akshay Kumar's Rustom has enjoyed an extended weekend and while it couldn't break any records, it has achieved a remarkable feat which you won't believe. Akki has been able to BEAT Salman Khan's Sultan through his latest film. Yes, after beating Shah Rukh Khan's Fan, Rustom has defeated Sultan too! We all know what a HUGE film Sultan was and how many records it broke over its lifetime run, however Rustom has broken one of the records that it held. Don't believe us?
As we revealed to you yesterday, Monday is now the litmus test for any film, so everyone see the first Monday collections. Rustom had a 4-day weekend with Monday being a holiday (Independence Day) and so the collections on the 4th day was fabulous. It collected Rs 17.81 crore, which is the HIGHEST first Monday collection for 2016. It even beat the first Monday collections of Salman Khan's Sultan, which had collected Rs 15.54 crore. Ain't that cool?
However, we must note that Monday was the 6th day in Sultan's run as compared to Rustom's 4th day. Also Rustom had a holiday on the first Monday, while Sultan didn't enjoy this benefit. In fact, Akshay's latest film achieved this feat with lesser number of screens as compared to Salman's film and while facing stiff competition from Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro. So, Akshay Kumar's Rustom has clearly defeated Salman Khan's Sultan.
