Aamir Khan’s Dangal is unstoppable at the global box-office. After we reported Dangal stands somewhere near Rs.1500cr at the worldwide box-office, it is now being reported that the Hindi film has achieved another milestone by becoming the first Indian film to rake in Rs. 1700 crore at the worldwide box-office.
After Aamir Khan‘s Dangal pinned down Baahubali 2 to become the highest grossing Indian film ever, it has now also become the first Indian film to rake in Rs 1700 crore at the worldwide market.
The movie is currently on a magical run at the Chinese box office as it scooped another Rs 52.05 crore on day 25, taking it overall tally to Rs 941.51 crore. Apart from that, at the Taiwan market, Dangal has earned Rs 32 crore, while it has collected Rs 745 crore from the rest of the world.
Trade analyst and industry tracker, Ramesh Bala took to his Twitter account and said, “#Dangal is the first Indian Movie to enter Rs 1700 crore Worldwide Gross Box Office Collection Club! #China – Rs 942 crore. #Taiwan – Rs 32 crore. Rest of world – Rs 745 crore. Total – Rs 1719 crore.”
The movie released in China on May 5 across 7000 screens. With a good fan following and a decent word-of-mouth publicity, everyone knew Dangal would earn well.
There could have been a big change in the numbers game after Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth movie from the popular franchise, got released on Friday, however nothing could stop the madness of Dangal.
And also, let’s not forget that SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion, which was earlier the highest Indian movie grosser, is yet to release in China.
Row – ₹ 745 Cr
Total – ₹ 1,719 Cr
