All previous Christmas releases of Aamir have worked brilliantly at the box office and Dangal is likely to break several box office records. With no major releases in coming few days, Dangal will dominate the box office.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the movie also features two child artists and two debutant actresses. Based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his two daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, Dangal has so far come up as one of the biggest blockbusters of 2016.
