Joy Pictures canceled their distribution plan of Sultan in China ?

+3 votes


According to local insider, Chinese Joy Pictures canceled their distribution plan of Sultan after they made money from Bajrangi Bhaijaan in China. It’s unclear if any other local studio will take over it.

Joy Pictures is also the local distributor of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. I heard the break even point is ¥40M. The film finally made nearly ¥300M, which is a great victory for them. And now they don’t want to release Sultan for unknown reason.

Well Bajrangi Bhaijaan deal was cut through EROS.

Here, YRF might have demanded more. Or also they want complete support for TOH release so letting go off Sultan. The reason will be best known to YRF & further, it's pretty obvious they'll try everything they can to get the proper release. The kind of business China market is giving, which production houses wants to miss out on that.

Thanks for making this thread...... Time will tell if Sultan will release or not..... but seeing Aamir fans insecurity is fun to watch..... Burn Haters Burn

Why it is insecurity ?

It is just a news ... according to Salman fans even Gavin is also insecure

Insecurity is when Salman fans were trolling Aamir in name of Hirani ..... when Race 3 lifetime collection crossed in 5 days itself

Diwali Dhamaka Secret Superstar's EPIC Stardom was crossed in 2 Days

Talaash ki Zinda Laash crossed in 3 Days

Ghajini was crossed in 3 Days

3 Idiots will be crossed in 8 Days

Dhoom 3 Will be crossed in 10 Days

Baith ke naach le, Aamir's every biggest Opening was crossed, We never claim anything which wasn't there =))

Comparing old movies and not so commercial film with Aamir not in main role lol.
Then sanju also crossed veer+wanted+yuvraj lifetime with just one show lol

Here ranga is comparing with a race 3 released 2 weeks back on a eid with masala elements.
3 idiots first 3 days crossed wanted+yuvraj+mein aur mrs+God tussi lifetime.......

After the struggle of Bajarangi to get screens, Joy pictures dropped the plans...... It might release after 3-4 years like Bajarangi did and they can compare that with Today's secret superstar. Still it will falter to cross Secret Superstar.

If it does, then it will be a celebration to Salman fans like how Bajarangi crossing 3 idiots/PK(released years back).

This is what happen when you over rely on masala stuff , I think now it's high time for some local stars to use some hatke stuff like momos with masala chatney to make a name in 2nd biggest market...

it may have been due to recent string of bollywood flops/underperformers in china
all were given mighty screen space......

the only reason...which is logical..... after bajrangi bhaijaan ....which had a huge profit share .... for producers..... sultan price ... or profit share would have been raised..... while all bollywood films are straight buy out....including dangal...... and that might have not gone welll with those distributors in china....

yrf and salman khan must have demanded bigger profit share..... would be the reason.
