Dangal box office collections: Even though we are already in the second month of 2017, Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’ released in December, 2016 continues to rule box-office and has earned Rs. 386.9 crore by the end of 7th week. The film improved on its previous month’s collection of Rs. 385.67. These are incredible numbers given that many big films like Raees, Kaabil and Jolly LLB have released in last two weeks starring big names like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar.
However, Mr. perfectionist as Aamir is known has his feet on earth and said that even though feels good when you movie does well on the box-office, these achievements mean very little to him. He explained that it wasn’t money that mattered to him, but love – whether his wife Kiran Rao was on the receiving end of it or his films’ scripts. At a recent event, he showered love on his love and said, “I am not a box-office king. I am only Kiran’s king.”

The film has surpassed the collections of Salman Khan’s Sultan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and his own earlier offering PK. “Till today I never signed a film on the basis of its capability to do business. I prefer to choose a film from my heart. All the films I’ve done till now are those which touched my heart. Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots, Rang De Basanti or Sarfarosh, when I did those films, I never thought they would do such a good business. If you take Dangal as an example, I played a role of an aged and heavy wrestler. There are no romantic songs or any typical formula to become a blockbuster. Therefore, we never predicted that the film would be such a big hit,” he explained.
Aamir will be next seen in another biopic ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’ where he will portray the role of Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian man to enter space. This will be directed by Mahesh Mathai and the title is based on Rakesh Sharma’s reply to the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s question how India looked from the outer world? ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’, replied Sharma.
