Dangal China Box Office Collections: Day 1

Aamir Khan’s Dangal has taken a record-breaking opening in China, crossing the 15 crore mark on its opening day at the box office (including collections from paid previews).

The film titled Shuai Jiao Baba (Let’s Wrestle, Dad) has reportedly collected 16,500,000 yuan (2.4 million USD / Rs 15.42 crore) in the country.

Dangal has shattered the opening record of PK and the film should surpass the weekend collections of the Rajkumar Hirani directed film in just two days after its release. The opening is strong inspite of a major Hollywood film ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2’ collecting 98 million yuan (14.2 million USD / Rs 91.2 crore) on its opening day.

The expectations for the weekend is around 10-11 million USD (Rs 65-70 crore).

Released on 9000 screens, Dangal has shattered records only because of the presence of Aamir Khan, who happens to be the only star who has cracked the China market. The only other films to make a mark in China are 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3 and PK.

Other stars like Shah Rukh Khan have tried to their luck, but films like My Name is Khan, FAN and Happy New Year have failed miserably. The suprise success was Nikhil Advani’s animated film Delhi Safari Even a major film like ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ failed in China – even though it was well-promoted and had a wide release.



  • If DANGAL got promoted/ distributed down south by a DHARMA type production house then it would have been a bigger success than it was.

    We all know your Joker Boy tried to crack the Chinese market last decade with his mahacrap “From Jokerpur To China’ but despite having the word CHINA in the title chinese audiences (rightly so) rejected his pathetic offering…!

  • I have seen B2 which imo is inferior to B1 bcoz my expectations were too high but everyone knows movies like B2 wont interest hollywood audiences nor Chinese audiences yet some idiots think B2 will outperform an Aamir movie in China…! You clowns need a reality check… Aamirs movies are universally appealing n relateable- his last 2 movies were about family dynamics mixed with sport n mans relationship with Gods ‘gatekeepers on Earth’…! B2 wont appeal to non Indians. Simple

  • 9000 screens, too much marketing and promotion and still just 15 cr. And you guys acting like this is a big deal? BTW how can the weekend be 65-70 cr if opening day is only 15?

  • its funny that people call srk international star.. its aamir khan not srk
    srk struggles to recover costs in india

  • And the epic Manipulated star here in action .He always tries to be bigger star .

    Now he will anyhow beat bahubali even he can release his film in Uganda and says 300cr in Uganda too .

    Epic shame in aamir most thirdclaas person in Bollywood such a shame complete garbage
