Sultan, which released last Wednesday, has reached the milestone quicker than Salman's 2015 film Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Aamir Khan's films PK and Dhoom 3.
These are Sultan's numbers right now:

Salman Khan is Bollywood's most profitable actor. Combined, his two films last year - Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - earned over Rs 500 crores.
Here's the bottomline:
Sultan stars Salman Khan, 50, as a Haryanvi wrestler who turns to mixed martial arts in an attempt to regain past glory. Anushka Sharma stars as his wife and Randeep Hooda plays his coach.
Box office receipts apart, Salman has been the focal point of controversy after comparing himself to a 'raped woman' some two months ago - a comment he has not yet apologized for. He has failed to show up for repeated summons from the National Women's Commission and its Maharashtra counterpart.
