No one would have imagined that an Indian film will collect almost 100 crore in a single day from one country, that too, a foreign country. Aamir Khan’s Dangal has done that and the actor is rewriting the future for Indian films in China single handedly.
Dangal witnessed another phenomenal day on 2nd Sunday (10th Day) and it collected approximately $ 14.02 million (90 crore). These are rare numbers and you won’t see such collections for Indian films in overseas for a long time. Dangal’s total collections are massive $ 61 million (391 crore).
Now, understand this, Dangal’s lifetime total in India is 387.38 crore and it took the movie more than 3 weeks to achieve that milestone. In China, Dangal has surpassed its India total in just 10 days. Isn’t it unbelievable?
One might argue that Dangal has got more than 7000 screens in China and it had around 3500 screens in India but still, a Bollywood movie getting such a gigantic response which is more than it got from a home country is a huge statement how Chinese audience has loved the movie.
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)
Total – $ 61 million (391 crore)
Dangal will be cruising towards the 500 crore mark as it is crossing the 100-100 crore collections with each passing day. It is at the no.1 position in China, beating Guardians of Galaxy, which is a brilliant aspect for Indian films.
At worldwide box office, Dangal’s total is now 1154 crore. Dangal has also dominated the Taiwan box office with 20 crore total (inclusive in worldwide box office). Soon, it might even surpass Baahubali 2‘s worldwide collections as it has also earned around 1300 crore.
There is no doubt Aamir Khan has contributed the maximum to take the Indian cinema on a global front and that’s why he is one of the most popular Indian actors today. Let’s see how big Dangal goes in China and how many more records it creates.
