Aamir Khan's Dangal creates history at the box-office!

Aamir Khan's Dangal creates history at the box-office!

At Rs29.78 crore, the wrestling film directed by Nitesh Tiwari had already earned the second-highest opening day figure of the year, again after Sultan that had made Rs36.54 crore on its first day. The film released in three different languages Hindi, Tamil and Telugu and the total collection includes the collection of all three languages.

This is Aamir Khan's fifth film to cross the 100 crore mark.

The first casualty was "Rock On 2" that released on November 11, three days after demonetization kicked in.

'Dangal, ' going strong on its terrific word-of-mouth, is expected to have an extended shelf-life, very much like Aamir's last release, 'PK, ' which eventually went on to become the highest grosser of all-time, in Indian cinema. "The collection for Dangal has been fantastic in multiplexes, but has suffered a hit in single screen theatres where a movie-goer generally buys tickets in cash", he says.

"We were expecting Dangal to do very well at the box office, but this kind of traction is unprecedented". It will sustain due to word of mouth. Dangal is expected to rake more collections at the box office, since it is getting more positive response day by dat from its release.

"Rogue One" Blasts Past $400 Million Mark
Forest Whitaker's "pinch me" moment on the set of the new Star Wars movie came when he slipped into his costume. To remedy the sadness of Star Wars purists the world over, one clever fan decided to make one of his own.

The Haryana-set film is a sports biopic of grappler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who aspired his daughters against all odds to win the gold medal for India. His previous movies 3 Idiots and PK were blockbusters at box office. Aamir Khan was ruthless as the stern, unrelenting father, determined to make his daughters strive for the same goal. Starring Aamir Khan, the film has Fatima Sana Sheikh playing Geeta and Sanya Malhotra plays Babita.

Taran Adarsh said that Dangal is not far from making 100 crores.

Salman went on to appreciate Aamir, calling "Dangal" to be his best film till date.

Author Saurabh Duggal in his latest book "Akhada: The Authorised Biography of Mahavir Singh Phogat" wrote that it was Geeta's mother Daya Kaur and not the former wrestler who was disappointed to have given birth to a girl. Dangal collected Rs. 5.49 Crores in U.S. and Canada. Aamir's best opener ever remains Dhoom 3 wth Rs 32.48 crore.
