"#Dangal sets new benchmarks in Australia, becomes highest grossing Indian film in the region [A$ 2.22 mn] in 12 days. #PK was A$ 2.11 mn," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted. The film is unstoppable at the international market as well. Dangal has crossed Rs 150 crore overseas, while it is set to surpass Rs 300 crore mark on its 13th day at the box office.
Dangal has also received a positive response from the US and UAE-GCC, where the film released before it did in India. The film is also expected to earn more in the domestic market as there are no big releases till the mid of January.
