Dangal has sustained outstandingly well at the China box office on Monday as the film has collected ￥19.9 million (approx – USD 2.9 million / Rs 18.5 crore) on Day 4, taking its cumulative collections to a little under￥100 million (USD 14.5 million / Rs 93 crore). The Monday collections are better than Friday (opening day).
The trend is so good that the film is now looking at a $50 million plus total and could even get to $60 million (which would be similar to the net collections in India which is Rs 387 crore).
Dangal becoming the first Hindi film to gross 1000 crore worldwide now looks like a certainty – unless the film drops in the second week in China, which is unlikely because the word-of-mouth is terrific and the competition in the Chinese markets is said to be weak in Week 2 and 3.
The China collections will cross the Rs 100 crore mark on Tuesday and the film is set to be the highest ever grosser in China on Wednesday or Thursday.

- Saturday (Day 2) – 26.9 crore
- Sunday (Day 3) – 32.7 crore
- Monday (Day 4) – 18.5 crore
- Total Collections – 91.7 crore
