Dangal inching closer to the 2000 crore mark
Aamir Khan’s Dangal is wreaking havoc in the Chinese box office. The movie was released on May 5 in 9000 screens in the country. Ever since then, it has been getting phenomenal response from the Chinese audience. Within a month from it’s release, Dangal created history by minting over Rs 1000 crores at the Chinese box office.
The worldwide earnings of the movie is nearing the Rs 2000 crore mark. If the movie manages to cross the mark, it will be the first ever Indian movie to do so. SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is close behind Dangal. It is worth a mention that the Prabhas- Rana Daggubati starrer has not yet released in China.
Dangal, recently become the 33rd film in Chinese cinema history to cross one Billion RMB, which in Indian currency amounts to about Rs 1000 crore. Dangal’s gross earnings crossed one billion RMB, joining the exclusive club of just 32 films in China cinema history market.
Eventhough the release of the Hollywood movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales dethroned Dangal from the top spot, it is still managing to do some great business.
Dangal is a sports drama directed by Nitish Tiwari. The movie is inspired from the real life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trained his daughters to world class wrestlers. Aamir Khan portrayed Mahavir Singh Phogat’s character while Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar played his daughter’s parts.
