For so many years, not a single Indian movie could cross the 1000 crore mark globally and in last 10 days, two Indian films have managed do that with flying colors. S. S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 and Aamir Khan’s Dangal have truly taken Indian cinema on a global front and the movie buffs from all corners of the world are pouring their love for these great films.
After becoming the first Indian movie to cross the 1000 crore mark, Baahubali 2 is still minting great money from every region. In India, it has completely overshadowed the new releases and in overseas markets too, it is earning like a beast.
Here is Baahubali 2’s Worldwide Box Office Collection Break Up:
Nett collections: 910 crore
Gross collections: 1168 crore
Overseas: 257 crore (gross)
Total worldwide collections of Baahubali 2: 1425 crore
The film has crossed the 1400 crore mark and now it is cruising towards the 1500 crore landmark. Baahubali 2 has collected 124+ crore from USA and it has been in top 3 films in America for 3 consecutive weekends. It is the Highest Grossing Indian Film in USA of all time. Also, it has collected 56 crore from UAE-GCC region, the highest ever for an Indian film.
These are amazing numbers and we have witnessed an era getting defined.
Coming to another grand success of Indian cinema, Aamir Khan’s Dangal is rewriting the future for Bollywood movies and Indian films in China. In its 11 days run at Chinese box office, Dangal has crossed the 400 crore mark which is a mind blowing feat to achieve.
Dangal’s China collections are more than its India total. Top 3 Indian films in China are all Aamir Khan’s films, stating how he has single handedly flourished Indian cinema there.
Here is Dangal’s Worldwide Box Office Collection Break-Up:
Before China release, Dangal’s total was – 742 crore
Dangal’s collections in China – 416 crore
Dangal’s collections in Taiwan – 20 crore
Total Worldwide Collections of Dangal – 1178 crore
Dangal is already the Highest Grossing Bollywood Movie worldwide and also the first Bollywood movie to cross the 1000 crore mark. It is the 2nd Indian film to go beyond 1000 crore milestone, after Baahubali 2.
By today, it will surpass the 1200 crore line. The way it is earning, Dangal can match or even beat Baahubali 2’s worldwide total. But, just a fact that these two glories of Indian cinema are ruling globally is a proud feeling for all of us, isn’t it?
