‘Dangal’ in 300-crore mark
Online Desk: Aamir Khan-starrer has collected Rs 239.01 crore. The film collected Rs 22.72 cr on Saturday. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared, “#Dangal is on a RECORD SMASHING spree… Will cross ₹ 250 cr today [Sun]. [Week 2] Fri 18.59 cr, Sat 22.72 cr. Total: ₹ 239.01 cr. India biz.” Dangal is also doing overwhelming business in overseas market. The film has collected Rs 131.02 cr so far.
Its Dangal all the way in 2017 too! As pointed out by Bollywood Taran Adarsh, there are three factors that are leading to the rise of Dangal – strong merits, holidays and no major film release this weekend. No wonder Aamir Khan’s film continues to rule the box office even after completing first week at the theaters. Going by the trends, it seems the wave will not die anytime until Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees hits the theatres next month.
Dangal tells the real-life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his daughters to become world-class wrestlers. While earning Rs 18.59 crore on day 8, its cumulative total stands at Rs 216.12 crore. It now looks to overthrow 2016’s biggest hit Sultan.
