While promoting Sultan, Salman Khan revealed that Akshay Kumar is the real Sultan of the Box Office as the actor delivers hits in quick succession in a year. With Rustom, Khiladi Kumar is looking for a hat-trick of hits after the success of Airlift and Housefull 3.
During Rustom's promotions, Akshay revealed that it was really great of Salman to say something like this but he does not agree with the same.
"I think it is Salman Khan's greatness that he said something like this. The statement proves that he is a very large-hearted guy and I would not take that thing because he actually is the real Sultan.
I did Brothers, which was set against the backdrop of MMA and the film did not do well at the Box Office. He did a similar film, Sultan, and that did wonders. So now you only answer 'Who is the bigger Sultan at the Box-Office?," said Akshay.
Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have worked together in two films, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Jaan-E-Maan. Recently, Salman came on board for a promotional song of Akshay's home production, Fugly.
Akshay's next film, Rustom is slated to hit the big screen on 12 August, 2016.
