Aamir Khan's Dangal will, in all probability, becomes 2016's highest grosser by tomorrow.
Dangal box office collections day 12: Aamir Khan’s revenues have slowed down somewhat, but only when you compare it to Dangal’s performance last week. The film raked in Rs 10.46 crore by Tuesday evening (day 12), making its total earnings Rs 295.15 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama. We wait with baited breath now to see it overtake Salman Khan’s Sultan by tomorrow. Even if Dangal can earn Rs 5 crore by Wednesday (day 13), it will surpass Sultan’s Rs 300.45 crore record. The chances of that happening is pretty much set and the debate of whether Dangal will become 2016’s highest grosser will finally come to an end. In the Salman vs Aamir debate, Aamir will come out the winner.

The announcement of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia yesterday of Dangal becoming tax free in Delhi might add on to the film’s revenues in the capital. “#Dangal movie would be tax free in Delhi cinemas. Orders issued. It’s an inspiring movie to promote sports-spirit by @aamir_khan,” Sisodia tweeted. Delhi has now joined Haryana and Uttar Pradesh in making Dangal tax free. In the middle of the demonetisation cash crunch, the move will be good news for many.
