Records are meant to be broken. It has become a norm that whenever Aamir Khan comes up with his film (he comes once in two years), every major box office record created in that time span is broken by his film and he also creates many new landmarks. Interesting thing is that major landmarks that get created are of Aamir’s film only and they are broken by his films itself.
Since Ghajini, everytime Aamir released his film, it became the Highest Grosser of that year. Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, PK and now Dangal. Dangal is now the Highest Grossing Film of All Time with 370+ Crore collections and it is still running in theaters.

The only actor who has come close to the box office domination like Aamir is Salman Khan. In fact, Salman has given more 100 crore club movies than Aamir but then, Aamir doesn’t frequently release his films. Salman and Aamir has two 300 crore club movies.
It has now become a talk of the town that Aamir’s next film in 2018 ‘Thugs of Hindostan‘ might manage to break this massive Dangal record. But, it is too soon to state that as the film needs to be as great as Dangal. Moreover, Salman has two big movies releasing this year – Tubelight and Tiger Zinda Hai. So, it will be interesting to see if those films can break this record.
In a nutshell, Aamir Khan has reached at that peak in Bollywood which is not just a benchmark but a glory as well.
Who do you think can break Dangal’s record?
