Dangal 2nd Weekend Box Office Collections: Decimates records

Aamir Khan’s Dangal has decimated records in its second weekend. The film has recorded yet another 30 crore plus day at the domestic box office, to take its total above the 270 crore mark in just 10 days.

The numbers that Dangal has managed to put up are unreal:

  • The ‘2nd weekend’ collections of Dangal is higher than the ‘1st weekend’ collections of all 2016 films except Sultan.
  • The ‘2nd weekend’ business alone would make it to Top 10 highest grossers of 2016.
  • Dangal will also become the first film ever to collect Rs 100 crore or more in its 2nd week.
  • The 2nd Sunday is higher than the opening day collections of Dangal.
  • The 10th day collection of Dangal makes it to the Top 25 highest single-day collections of all time.

The trend is better than both Bajrangi Bhaijaan and PK, which makes Dangal becoming the highest grosser of all-time, a certainty. Whether the film crosses the 400 crore mark or not would now depend on how it holds up in the next couple of days.

The Christmas – New Year holidays have come to an end, but if Dangal manages to record double-digit numbers over the next 4 days, then 400 crore will be well within reach.

It has to be noted that Dangal still needs nearly 128 crore to become the first film to 400 crore. In other words, the collections after the 2nd weekend will have to be higher than what films like Rustom, Airlift and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story have managed to collect from Day 1.

But with 11 days to go for the release of ‘Ok Jaanu’ and more than 3 weeks for the release of ‘Raees’ and ‘Kaabil’, anything is possible if ‘Dangal’ manages to hold up in the next few days.

Dangal is the 5th consecutive ‘Highest Grosser Of The Year’, ‘Highest Grosser Of All-Time’ and ‘All Time Blockbuster’ for Aamir Khan during Christmas. His previous Christmas releases were Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3 and PK.

    thugs of Hindustan 500cr

  • Ye hoi na baat Mr. Jealous … or janab ap jo Twitter pe kehte phir rhe ho k Dangal ka record content oriented hai to bhai mere for you kind info, Dangal bollywood ki wo pehli movie hai jis ne without masala genre, without big actress, without big directer, and without any item song it has collect 30 crore on opening day, its a huge achievement … content ka pta chalta hai first monday per .. first 3 dyas movie earn krti hai content k bina .. so please accept the fact that Aamir is bigger star then Salman ….

  • Indicine- are you planning to re-release Mohenjodaro 😀😀

    Pls rectify type in the second last para of article..

  • Unbelievable.
    Phenomenal B.O performance.
    31 Crores on its second Sunday is simply
    Outstanding ..!!!!
    Wow !!!!
    Congratulations Aamir khan fans.
    I said on twitter 60 days ago That Dangal will beat sultan on its 13 days and now it has become a reality ……!!!!!

  • Content and the audience’s trust in Aamir’s work are the main reasons crowds are still flocking in to see this piece of cinematic excellence.

  • No one,I bet no one even in their dreams wud have thought that dangal ll do this kind of business.

  • @indicine, I’m sure you will go with a bold prediction of 450-500 cr for Aamir’s next Thugs of Hindostan.

  • All this when public is facing a cash crunch!!
    I will keep Aamir ahead of Salman.
    Keep it in this perspective – If both sultan n dangal clashed;dangal would beat sultan by a healthy margin.
    Aamir is the bigger star.

  • thats called megastardom. no one can challenge aamir on christmas & salman on eid. as they have made it the best. tubelight will be hgoty of 2017 as salman is coming on eid which is danger then tzh coming on xmas.

  • Oh but this movie had no buzz and excitement. And lultan was suppose to remain HGOTY wasnt it? Doest it have the biggest megastar of the country? Then why that so called megastar still struggles to give ATHG since 1995 and certain non superstar who has no fan following, no raju hirani and dhoom brand this time is kicking that particular megastar left right and center? Have an answer?

  • simply mindboggling collection
    hatsoff aamir from an srk fan
    really you are setting benchmarks for indian cinema
    if your are not there south indian cinema have been overtake long time ago
    but you are a benchmark setter
    hope raees also do well and hope raees is a good movie and do a buisness above 250+ in domestic
    as a actor salman is also improving
    in a acting department also i start to like salman khan
    nd there is one request to akshay sir also dont over doo a one genre
    you are now in prime form dont make mistake you did in 2013 by doing continues masala films nd may god give you more success
    HRITHIK expression in kaabil of blind man is looking real nd hope film also be a success but as a srk fan i wnt raees to win a clash by big margin
    bt i will kaabil also
    bt raees craze is on diffrent level now
    happy new year to all the indicine surfers
    #raeeskisuno on happy new year

  • May be Salman is the current superstar n biggest crowd puller but such is the Trust n affection of amir
    khan towards Indian audience that they get
    attracted towards his movies. 400cr definitely
    on. It will take years to break dangal box office
    records just like it took so many years to break
    3idiots record. Amir khan u beauty. Now I can
    say that he is the reigning champion of
    Bollywood followed closely by Salman
