Dangal Total Collection in India
Even though Aamir Khan and Salman Khan don’t seem to be competing (that we know of), both their films from 2016, Dangal and Sultan were in a race of their own for two reasons. Firstly, both films had similar backgrounds: Haryana and wrestling. Secondly, both stars are known to rake in close to 300 crores per film. The competition had begun since Dangal released on 23 December 2016. And while the Sultan official box office collection stands at 300.45 crore at the domestic box office, Dangal has officially crossed the 300 crore mark, which officially makes it the highest grossing film of 2016. (These are the domestic box office collections.)
Both Aamir and Salman now have two films in the 300 crore category. Aamir with PK and now Dangal, and Salman with Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan. Sultan had grossed about Rs 572 crore (from domestic and international markets), while Dangal has already crossed Rs 426 crore gross (Rs 300 crore net) from domestic box office and earned Rs 158.7 crore from the international box office which takes its total worldwide earning to Rs 584.7 crore gross. Trade pundits are already predicting that Dangal will cross Rs 400 crores at the box office in India.
However, Dangal‘s run hasn’t ended yet. After beating PK, we expect Aamir’s movie to continue its magical run throughout the coming week too. With a strong word of mouth publicity still flowing for the movie and no big release till January 13, Dangal will continue to rake in the money. We expect it to earn anywhere in between Rs 350-360 crore in its lifetime run, making it the first film to enter the Rs 350 crore club.
Dangal has not only been praised for its great content but also the performances of all the actors. Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar put up a great show and we have to give them a round of applause for it. The powerful message that the film gave out is also something that the people have been talking about
