Dangal: First India film to cross $50 million overseas, could cross $100 million

Aamir Khan’s Dangal has become the first Indian film to cross the $50 million mark overseas and it could also become the first film to collect $100 million (Rs 650 crore) too – as the film is showing unbelievable trends in China.

The Tuesday collections in China is better than its Monday business and the word-of-mouth is said to be extraordinary. The 5-day collections in China is more than the lifetime overseas business of all films barring the Top 9 (list below).

With little or no competition in the next few weeks in the Chinese markets, trade estimates are now putting the China collections of the film at $60-70 million. 

If it does cross $65 million in China, Dangal will become the first Indian film to collect $100 million overseas – as the collections from Phase 1 (traditional markets) was $30 million.

The combined collections from China and Taiwan could well exceed the $70 million mark, giving the film a realistic chance of crossing $100 million.

That would give the film several records; first Indian film to cross $100 million overseas, first Hindi film to gross 1000 crore worldwide and it would also more than double the previous highest overseas grosser.

  • Out of 25 films Srk has 10 and Aamir has 5.

    Combined total of Srk’s films is 150 million dollar while aamir has around 156 and dangal still adding which could take it to 200 million dollar.

    Figures are enough to prove the over seas stardom.

  • Chinese markets will only work with strong Dubai connections. Most Indian trade experts hoping that this will help other movies are living in Alice in wonderland dreams. 99.9% of other movies will not even do 1 million in China including Baahubali 2.

  • @ mental navina, are you moron or what ?
    Comparing overseas collection with domestic collection.in this way Dangal also crossed Gangu teli Salman’s Flop Ho.

  • People are following BOI blindly and saying that producers don’t earn much. That’s completely false. China box office has clarified it on Twitter. Producers earn 25% of the total collection. So if it earns $60 million Aamir will take home $15 million which is a huge a amount. Aamir is not stupid to sell his movie for peanuts after PK did so well in China. He also went there to promote it which he wouldn’t do if considerable money wasn’t involved. BOI as usual is trying to pull Dangal down. That site is toxic.

  • Most important achievement is that this collections are with competition from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 which is doing phenomenal worldwide.

    Salute Dangal!

  • That’s just superb….

    I seriously don’t understand why Salman is not releasing his movies (BB and Sultan) in China and other market like Aamir……I am sure it will do good collection there….If Srk crap movies HNY, Dilwale, FAN can release their than Salman’s BB and Sultan are much much better movies…..
    I asked this so many times to Indicine also that why Salman is not releasing his movies in China, what’s the problem, but they never reply or answer……Even I heard that after FAN release YRF will release Sultan in China, but nothing happen……

    Indicine I ask you again, atleast reply on comment section…..

  • Hahaha…..aamir is bigger than bahubali….now its a tightslap to bahubali……if bahubali wants to take revenge then show it…….if bahubali can touches dangal overseas collection…..then i thought really bahubali is globali popular……bt i dont think there is any change…. ….

  • I dont y @Indicine is not posting bahubali collections.incidine is more interested in China n Taiwan collection.bahubali2 breaking al records in India n al over the world but Incidine is stuck in China n trying to promote amir.we al know dat films in China do well bcoz of nmbr of screens dey hav n tingu is well known in China but wat about the whole world wer bahubali2 has broken al records of dangal in jus 5days.bahubali is going to do 1000crs in India alone,which tingu can only dream of.bahubali2 has crossed dangal al languages of 388crs in jus 4days but still Incidine n tingu fans r blabbering over mangal collections.other sites r keep posting bahubali collection n Incidine has become blind

  • This Khan site is completely avoiding the Bahubhali as it is not pride for India by deviding it north South
    Hindi regional
    Bahubhali and dangal are Indian films for outsider not hindi or telgu

  • Correction : First Indian movie to cross 1000 crores worldwide is Bahubali 2. I agree it is not Hindi or Bollywood movie but still an Indian movie. Accept it and correct it !!!!!!!! Don’t be biased.

  • @Prashant Abhishek : In Domestic list (which is the most important to decide verdicts):

    1. Dangal
    2. PK
    3. Bajrangi Bhaijaan
    4. Sultan
    5. Dhoom 3
    6. Kick
    7. Chennai Express
    8. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
    9. Happy New Year
    10. Ek Tha Tiger

    Megastar Salman – 5
    Aamir – 3
    Gangu aka h@klu teli – 2 (None of the movie in top 5)

    Too much fun !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • HAHK was the first movie to open overseas market for Hindi movies. However Salman didnt capitalize on it by working on NRI based stories and continuously working with big banners during late 90’s and early 2000’s !!!!!!! Now Aamir have completely dominated overseas and he should be credited for opening China market, he deserves all collections and success !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A Global (fake) superstar with just 1 movie in Top 5 and none of the movie with even 450 crs WW forget 600, 700 and 800 crs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @Gawar TIktik-You better read this comment to enhance your sick mind-

    “SRK aamir overseas king ..Sallu bas India tak aukaat hai
    Srk 24 blockbuster overseas me aamir ka 5 salman ka 4 ..Or aaj tak bas 13 movie all time blockbuster hua hai overseas me jisme se srk ka hi 9 movie hai salman 1 aamir 2 ……overseas me srk ka 15 HGOTY hai salman ka 3 aamir ka 4 …..top 25 higest overseas me srk ka hi 12 movie hai …2009tak top 10 highest overseas me pura 10 movie srk ka tha ..isse pata chalta hai srk ki vajah se Bollywood movie overseas me famous hua

    Sri overseas king door door tak koi nahi hai”. Your Local star doesn’t have the “aukaat” to have this kind of records…!!

  • LOL, “HAHK was the first movie to open overseas market for Hindi movies. However Salman didnt capitalize on it” who knows Gangu Teli sallu in overseas…? People watched HAHK for Madhuri. Where was the NRI stories in Dil Se, KKHH, Veer Zaara, Dil To Pagal Hai, Mohabbatein, Devdas, Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Chennai Express etc..?? Lallu was a 2010 born star that’s why no one bothered about him in overseas…!!

  • Dangal is a highly overrated film. Its all packaging. Saala Khadoos was better than Dangal. But no packaging = No Big money. Dangal is a good film no doubt. But its overrated by Indicine and Aamir fans.
