Dangal inching closer to 400 crore box office collections
Aamir Khan’s latest blockbuster movie Dangal has successfully entered its fifth week. The movie continues to register big numbers at the box office and set new records. It is already the highest grossing Hindi film in India.
The movie is now inching closer to cross Rs 400 crore mark in the domestic mark. It will be the first Bollywood movie to touch the mark. Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees have released this week and a bulk of thetares have been taken for the two biggies. So it will be difficult for Dangal to set the new record.
On Monday, the film’s domestic box office collection stood at Rs 381.92 crore, after adding Rs 85 lakh to its previous total of Rs 381.07 crore. Since its release on December 23, Dangal has not had to face any serious competition, with all other releases damping out at the box office. From this week, Dangal’s collections have begun to slow down, as is generally expected after a long run.
In the past month, Dangal has set several box office records: it crossed the coveted Rs 100-crore mark in its first weekend itself. The movie overhauled PK’s lifetime collections to become the highest grossing film ever in Hindi cinema.
Dangal is an inspiring sports drama directed by Nitesh Tiwari. The movie is based on the real life story of a wrestler from Haryana, Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his two daughters- Geetha Kumari Phogat and Babita Kumari Phogat to world class wrestlers.
Aamir Khan portrayed the character of Mahavir Singh Phogat on screen. Sakshi Tanwar played his wife in the movie while Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar essayed the daughters’ parts
