Aamir Khan's Dangal has emerged victorious at the Chennai box office as the movie has earned a 'hit' status at the box office in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
Dangal had got a fantastic opening by grossing Rs 84.67 lakh from 219 shows at the Chennai box office in the first weekend. The business considerably improved during the second weekend as it minted Rs 1.11 crore to take its 10-day total to Rs 2.87 crore, which is a huge number for a Bollywood flick in Chennai, reports Behindwoods.
The Aamir Khan-starrer has been dubbed in Tamil and the aforementioned collection is the combined business of the two versions. Apart from Chennai, the movie has done well in other parts of Tamil Nadu.
"#Dangal 1st Hindi film 2 b in No.1 position @ CBO, 2nd consecutive week. @aamir_khan king among other language stars at CBO - #3Idiots & #PK. [sic]" leading trade tracker Sreedhar Pillai tweeted about the performance of Aamir Khan's film.
