Aamir Khan's Dangal is unstoppable. The film has collected terrific figure in just 10 days of its release at the Chinese box office and is set to cross Rs. 400 crore mark.
After having collected close to Rs. 200 crore at the Chinese box office in its first week, the business of the sports drama escalated to two-fold in its second weekend. Aamir's film minted Rs. 195 crore (approximately) in just three days (second weekend) and with this, its 10-day collection now stands at Rs. 382.69 crore gross.
"#Dangal collects an EARTH-SHATTERING $ 32.60 mn / ₹ 208.84 cr in *Weekend 2* in China... UNPRECEDENTED... Weekend 2 data follows...," Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted. "#Dangal - CHINA - Week 2 [updated]...Fri: $ 6.21 mn Sat: $ 13.86 mn Sun: $ 12.53 mn 10-day total: $ 59.74 million [₹ 382.69 cr] STUPENDOUS!" he added.
Despite some reluctance from Wanda Cinemas – China's biggest cinema chain – to screen the film in most of its theatres, Dangal has achieved the feat. The Nitesh Tiwari-directorial has now crossed Rs. 1,100 crore (approximately) in the worldwide box office.
Dangal is now the second biggest box-office grosser in Indian cinema after SS Rajamouli's Baahubali 2. Both Dangal and Baahubali 2 have pushed the envelope of Indian cinema by crossing the boundaries and having created history by grossing Rs. 1,000 crore at the worldwide box office.
With the speed at which Dangal is minting money at the Chinese box office, we wonder if it manages to beat the worldwide box-office collection of Baahubali 2 (Rs. 1,372.2 crore gross in 17 days and still counting) soon.
