The unprecedented and historic run of Aamir Khan’s Dangal in China has meant that the blockbuster is now targeting records that truly justify the word – ‘unbelievable’.
The film has collected nearly Rs 730 crore in China and it recorded its best ever day on its 3rd Saturday (16th day) at the box office – collecting more than Rs 100 crore on a single day. This means the word-of-mouth is driving the film to insane levels of business and it could even add Rs 300 crore (nearly $50 million) or more to its total before the end of its run.
This would mean, Dangal will cross the Rs 1000 crore mark in China – a country where no other Indian film had previously crossed the Rs 125 crore mark. In fact, a film without Aamir Khan hasn’t even crossed the Rs 15 crore mark in China and here we have a film like Dangal that could do one thousand crores!
It also gives the film a fairly decent chance of grossing more than 2000 crore globally. Dangal has already grossed nearly 1500 crore. It’ll beat Bahubali in next 3-4 days and become the highest grossing Indian film of all time.
‘Bahubali 2’ destroyed ‘Dangal’ at domestic box office recently. It’s Dangal’s turn now.
