Dangal No 1 at China Box Office, beats Hollywood film GOTG Vol 2

Aamir Khan’s Dangal has beaten the collections of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2’ on Wednesday. The film has collected nearly 12% more than the Hollywood film – which is running on 70% more shows and has a higher average ticket price too.

The footfalls (number of tickets sold) of Dangal is now much higher than ‘GOTG Vol 2’. Dangal was watched by a little more than 9 lakh people on Wednesday, while ‘GOTG Vol 2’ was watched by 6.5 lakh people.

The exceptional trend suggests, Dangal could well be the No 1 film at the China box office for the next few days. The Wednesday collections are around 30% better than Monday and this ‘could’ mean the second weekend collections will be better than the first.

The China collections of Dangal has now beaten the entire overseas collections (all countries except India) of all Hindi films except PK, Dhoom 3, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Dilwale, 3 Idiots and Sultan.

Today (Thursday), the China collections of Dangal will go past the lifetime overseas business of Dilwale, 3 Idiots and Sultan.

History is in the making here. The eventual achievement of Dangal in China could be as big or bigger than the incredible achievements of ‘Bahubali 2’ – because the S.S. Rajamouli film is performing in traditional markets, while the Aamir Khan film is topping a non-traditional market like China and beating Hollywood films too.

  • #Dangal hasn’t got hos due from indian media & govt.
    First it was brutally ignored by the National Awards committee
    Second, It lost the biggest Indian grosser tag from #Baahubali2 which was nowhere near #Dangal ‘s quality
    Third, Dangal ‘s extraordinary run in a non traditional market like China is hardly drawing any media attention bcz of which public is largely unaware of the proud achievement

  • You are getting so biased nowadays. No articles regarding the collection of Baahubali for the last 4 days. Dangal is history now brother. No matter how much you try to point it out. It cannot surpass what Baahubali 2 has achieved without a holiday release and without any big Khans and that too in Hindi market. Accept it and embrace the defeat.
    As per BOI Baahubali 2 will cross Dangal today and can still go anywhere between 450-500 in Hindi. Accept it and embrace the defeat.

  • @ indicine , yes I agree Dangal has done exceptional buisness in China. But that’s not a reason to undermine what Baahubali 2 achieved in the last two weeks. You just showed you bias nature towards the Khan from the last paragraph of this article. Everyone knows that Baahubali 2 is the bigger achievement considering there was no superstar and no holiday release.

  • All these days indicine was like, a film is hit only if it does well in domestic market. worldwide doesnt matter. Now, when baahubali has thrashed dangal in india, all of a sudden non traditional market is more important than traditional market, and the achievement of dangal is bigger. Indicine, What about US where also baahubali thrashed dangal? Dangal had its fair share of praise and deservedly so. But it didnt take the international media by storm like bahubali has done. Give credit where its due and stop this biased reporting. Or change the name “Indicine” to “Bollycine” or “Aamircine”

  • @indicine Before undermining GOTG 2, analyse the fact that chinese taste of Hollywood movies are really bad. Pathetic movies like Warcraft, Resident Evil, XXX 3 are huge hits in china with box office numbers greater than anywhere in the world and Critically and commercially acclaimed movies of Hollywood have been washout in China. So please dont undermine the quality of Hollywood movies by comparing its collection in China. Yes Sure Aamir has cracked it in China but it doesnt mean he has defeated a hollywood biggie. Be Logical Dude…

  • @Harshit, Domestic business is the most important for any film, that doesn’t change. If Dangal had flopped in India, China collections wouldn’t make it a success.

    @indicine, then please tell us what is your reason for not posting any article regarding the domestic box office collection of Baahubali 2 for the past 4 days.
    If your explanation is that it is not a Hindi movie, then change the website name to Bollycine. you dont deserve the name Indicine
