Aamir Khan’s Dangal has become the first Hindi film to cross the 100o, 1100 and 1200 crore mark globally. The film has already ‘grossed’ 1270 crore worldwide and by the end of its 3rd weekend in China, the film should be closer to the 1400 crore mark.
Dangal becoming the first Hindi film to gross 1500 crore looks almost like a certainty, unless there’s a unexpected drop in collections in the fourth week.
Check out the highest worldwide grossers:
|3||Bajrangi Bhaijaan||625 cr|
|5||Dhoom 3||561 cr|
|6||Chennai Express||406 cr|
|7||3 Idiots||391 cr|
|9||Prem Ratan Dhan Payo||374 cr|
|10||Bajirao Mastani||362 cr|
Overseas, Dangal has become the first Indian film to gross $100 million in any country excluding India. It has now collected 2.5 times more than the previous highest grosser – which also happens to be Aamir’s ‘PK’.
As far as non-Aamir Khan films are concerned, the overseas grosser of Dangal is more than ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Dilwale’, ‘Sultan’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’ – all combined – and Dangal is still running strong in China.
