Sultan is an Indian Bollywood film released in Pakistan on Eidul Fitr on 6th July 2016. Bollywood films are widely viewed in Pakistan especially the one starring any of the Bollywood’s Khan.
Sultan was allotted the maximum number of shows through out Pakistan in the provinces of Sindh, Punjab and the federal capital Islamabad. The film is also released in Balochistan (Quetta) and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Peshawar), where normally Bollywood and locally made Urdu films are not released and only Pashto films are released.
Two Urdu films Blind Love and Swaal 700 Crore Dollar Ka (SSCDK) were announced to be released on Eidul Fitr, however seeing the preference of cinema owners the producers of Blind Love had delayed their film while the other film SSCDK was given very few shows by the cinema owners and thus it paved the way for maximum number of shows given to Bollywood’s Sultan.

The film has crossed the 10 crore mark in just three days the fastest for any film on Pakistani box office. Sultan is distributed by Geo Films.
