Salman Khan's wrestling drama, Sultan breezed past the Rs 300 crore mark at the Box Office on 10 August, 2016. Now the producers - Yash Raj Films - have announced that they will salute every Indian gold medal winner at the Rio Olympics.
The production house, which is one of the most successful in the Hindi film industry, has decided to felicitate the winners with a cash price of Rs 10 lakh. With Sultan set against the backdrop of wrestling, a recognised sport in the Olympics, the gesture to salute real Sultan's of India is a prestigious one.

The film is now about to end its lifetime run in India with collections close to Rs 301 crore.
