Dangal Box Office: A still from the movie


  • Aamir Khan's Dangal hit screens last Friday
  • Dangal broke the record of highest single-day earning

New Delhi: Dangal star Aamir Khan has a lot of reasons to celebrate - A) Dangal's box office numbers are almost Rs 200 crore (as reported by trade analyst Taran Adarsh) B) it is the week he celebrates his wedding anniversary with Kiran Rao C) Dangal broke the record for the highest single day earning of any film with Rs 42 crore last Sunday. The record was previously held by Salman Khan's July release Sultan, which is also a wrestling movie. Aamir told NDTV that Salman called to say how much he loved Dangal. Salman also tweeted to say that his family members thought Dangal was a better film than his own Sultan. Dangal features Aamir Khan as Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, on whose story the biopic is based. Mr Phogat trained his daughters in wrestling.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh predicted that with no big releases this week, Dangal will continue to rule box office. While sharing the collection figures on Twitter, he wrote: "#Dangal's reign to remain unopposed, unchallenged for another week. Question is, when will it hit Rs 300 crore mark? Will it challenge #Sultan?"

Here's a day-wise break up of how Aamir Khan's Dangal fared at the box office, courtesy Taran Adarsh:

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Meanwhile, Aamir Khan, his wife Kiran Rao and part of Team Dangalare holidaying in Panchgani, a hill station outside Mumbai. The vacation is to celebrate Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao's 11th wedding anniversary.

Aamir Khan's much-awaited Dangal opened to packed theatres on December 23 and became the subject of rave reviews. Dangal has also garnered celebrity endorsements from Anil Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Saif Ali Khan, who described Aamir's performance as 'phenomenal'. Saif also said that Dangal was one of the best films he's seen, reported news agency IANS.

A day ahead of Dangal's release, Amir Khan confessed that he was very nervous in anticipation of the kind of response Dangal would receive. "I'm really nervous. Yesterday I had literally been hiding in the store room of Yash Raj Films so that no one could see me. I have been constantly thinking about Dangal and it's driving me crazy. Numbers do not matter to me, neither do awards. The audience liking my film is equivalent to winning an award for me," Aamir said told reporters.

Well Aamir, your break is well earned.
