Yash Raj Films made the release date announcement on Monday.
Produced by Aditya Chopra and written-directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, “Sultan” features Salman and Anushka Sharma as wrestlers.
Interestingly, it will witness a five-day opening weekend at the box office as July 6 is a Wednesday.
“‘Sultan’ advance booking for the 5-day festive weekend will start on Sunday, July 3, 2016 across India,” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Industry experts believe “Sultan” will be a box office winner considering Salman’s score at the ticket counters since the past few years.
