Released in India last year in December, Aamir Khan starrer Dangal has become the second film to breach the surreal collections figure of Rs 1,000 crore
Dangal collections: The magic of SS Rajamouli has helped his magnum opus Baahubali 2: The Conclusion to achieve unimaginable heights of success at the box office. The much-awaited sequel to Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer Baahubali: The Beginning recently created history to become the first ever Indian film to cross Rs 1,000 crore figure in terms of collections. While the film is still running successfully and breaking its own collections records, there is another movie following it closely. It is the biographical sports drama Dangal that stars Aamir Khan. Released in India last year in December, it has become the second film to breach the surreal collections figure of Rs 1,000 crore, reported Bollywood Hungama.
After its release, Dangal had managed to collect a gross amount of Rs 716 crore at the worldwide market with Rs 511 crores (Rs 387 crores NETT) coming in from the India box office and $30.02 million (Rs 205 crore) coming from overseas markets. Meanwhile, with its release in Taiwan last month, a collection of Rs 11 crore Dangal at the Taiwan box office added to the total collections of the film that were pegged at approximately Rs 726 crore. While Aamir had stated numerous times that the film’s financial success is not as important to him as the fans’ happiness, the recent release of Dangal in China helped the film to cross the Rs 1,000 crore mark.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the movie is “setting new benchmarks for Indian films in China”. After a successful first week in China, the second week also started with a bang. In the nine days, the movie made a business of $46.98 million (Rs 301.50 crore) with a business of $13.66 million (Rs 87.66 crore) recorded in a single day (last Saturday), shared Adarsh on his Twitter account. With this, the cumulative worldwide gross of Dangal reportedly reached to Rs 1,026 crore. Amazingly, he further expects the lifetime business of the film in China to be “much, much higher” that its lifetime business in India.
