Aamir Khan is a one man army from Indian film industry who is changing and writing the future for our films in China. Within 2 weeks of its run at China box office, his film Dangal has crossed 500 crore milestone and has created history.
Dangal has collected approximately $3.60 million (23.38 crore) on its 2nd Thursday to make its record total of $78.13 million (507.49 crore) in 14 days. This is a massive number to rake-in in 2 weeks and that too, from a foreign country.
Here are Dangal’s day-wise collections in China so far:
Friday – $ 2.08 million (13.39 crore)
Saturday – $ 4.17 million (26.81 crore)
Sunday – $ 5.05 million (32.48 crore)
Monday – $ 2.80 million (17.90 crore)
Tuesday – $ 3.12 million (22 crore)
Wednesday – $ 3.91 million (25.22 crore)
Thursday – $ 5.18 million (33.34 crore)
Friday – $ 6.21 million (39.85 crore)
Saturday – $ 13.66 million (87.66 crore)
Sunday – $ 14.02 million (90 crore)
Monday – $ 4.95 million (31.73 crore)
Tuesday – $4.92 million (31.54 crore)
Wednesday – $4.20 million (26.92 crore)
Thursday – $3.60 million (23.38 crore)
Total collections – $78.13 million (507.49 crore)
Dangal has also become the first Indian film to collect $ 100 million from overseas markets. It is amazing to witness such huge response from the Chinese audience who is loving the movie and Aamir Khan’s performance.
All eyes are now on Dangal’s 3rd weekend collections in China which are again expected to be record breaking. Within 3 days, it can collect more than 100 crore or even 150 crore as it did in last weekend.
Dangal’s total in China can be as big as 650-700 crore and by that rate, it can even match or beat Baahubali 2‘s worldwide total. Dangal is already the highest grossing Indian movie in China and we hope, in coming years, more Indian films start releasing their movies there.
3rd week will be another fruitful one for Dangal as it doesn’t have any competition; Guardians of Galaxy: Vol 2 has been beaten by Dangal in last week itself. However, from 26th May, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be taking over but till then, Dangal will have minted maximum from China box office.
