It’s Dangal all the way this Christmas and New Year season at box office. As always, Aamir Khan has brought Bollywood alive with his film. Dangal has created and broken so many records and now within 1 week, the film has collected a grand total of 197.53 crore. These are astonishing numbers.
While most of the films could only reach 100 crore or less in their lifetime run at box office, Dangal has almost reached the 200 crore mark in just one week and it still has many more days open to earn significant chunk of money. Second weekend will be hugely crucial for the movie as within these 3 days, it will add another 50-60 crore to its kitty and will surpass the 250 crore mark.
Here are day wise week one collections of Dangal:
Friday: 29.78 crore
Saturday: 34.82 crore
Sunday: 42.35 crore
Monday: 25.48 crore
Tuesday: 23.07 crore
Wednesday: 21.20 crore
Thursday: 20.29 crore
Total: 197.53 crore
The most obvious question remains is whether Dangal will beat Salman Khan’s Sultan collections of 300.45 crore to become the Top Earner of 2016 as he has always done whenever he comes up with his movies. Currently, Dangal is the 2nd Highest Grosser of this year.
Dangal has received rave appreciation from critics and audience . The film also has a repeat value which is helping it reach greater milestones. Till 13th January, no big release is happening so it has an open box office at its disposal.
Dangal also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar and Sakshi Tanwar and it is directed by Nitesh Tiwari.
