Aamir Khan’s blockbuster ‘Dangal’ is creating history at the Chinese box office. The film’s total collections in China stands at a whopping $151.86 Million (979.50 Crores) by yesterday. The biographical sports drama will cross the magical 1000 crore mark today. Let alone trade experts or movie lovers, not even Aamir would have though in his wildest imaginations that his film would conquer this monumental feat.
With an unbelievable overseas business of 1213.50 crores (1000 crore from China alone), Dangal’s worldwide collection is a mammoth 1755 crore. Thanks to the unprecedented adulation of Chinese, Dangal has comfortably surpassed Baahubali 2, which still holds all possible box office record if we exclude China market.
Aamir’s PK was the first Indian film to collect 100 crore in China. And now, his Dangal has done ten times better by raking in 1000 crore in that territory. Enroute this phenomenal record at Chinese box office, Aamir’s film has trounced even a Hollywood biggie like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’.
Interim, plans are underway to release Baahubali 2 in China. Despite the first part wasn’t a success, trade pundits predict the second part to do well
