Salman Khan's much-anticipated big Bollywood Eid release, Sultan, opened to packed theatres on 6 July.

Shows in Salman's homeground, Mumbai - even as early as 8:30am - saw fans lining up to watch the film, cheering for their 'bhai'.

On 5 July, the makers of Sultan organised a star-studded special screening of the Ali Abbas Zafar-directorial. The screening was attended by Dia Mirza, Subhash Ghai, Riteish Deshmukh, Kabir Khan, Huma Qureshi, Karan Johar and Prem Chopra, among others.

Sultan is expected to break a number of Bollywood Box Office records. And the stars who watched it seem to agree. The celebs took to Twitter to express their views about 'hurricane' Sultan.

Catch asked a few fans to send in photos before they went in to watch the first show of Sultan on the first day of its release. Take a look:
