After S S Rajamouli’s Bahubali, now it’s the time of Aamir Khan starrer Dangal to cross, what was an unthinkable figure of 1000 crore. Dangal joined Bahubali in prestigious 1000 CR club. The film, which released in China on May 5 as Shaui Jiao Baba (Let’s Wrestle Dad), has made a stupendous collection of Rs. 382.69 crore in 10 days at the Chinese box office. The lifetime collection of the movie in India stands at Rs. 387.38 crores. Dangal collected Rs. 208.84 crore during the second weekend, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. “#Dangal collects an EARTH-SHATTERING $ 32.60 mn / 208.84 cr in *Weekend 2* in China… UNPRECEDENTED… Weekend 2 data follows,” he tweeted.
Dangal opened across 9,000 screens in China. The film earned over Rs. 200 crores in China within the first week of its release, thereby emerging as the highest-grossing Indian film in China beating the record of Aamir Khan’s 2014 film PK. Rajkumar Hirani’s PK had collected a total of Rs.123 crore in the country.
In India, the film won four awards at the 62nd Filmfare Awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Action and Best Actor (Aamir Khan).
