Advance booking for Sultan was thrown open on the morning of 3 July. Movie halls across India have reported a phenomenal response for the Salman Khan-Anushka Sharma sports drama.

Tickets have been selling like hot cakes, something that is bound to validate trade pundits' claims that Sultan will break a number of Box Office records when it hits the screens this Eid.

At Rajasthan, a mass-dominated circuit, matinee and afternoon shows for Sultan have already been sold out. Distributors say they expect the circuit to record 100% occupancy throughout the day.

Rajasthan distributor Raj Bhansal tweeted:
