- "Dangal is EXTRAORDINARY in Hong Kong...," Taran Adarsh tweeted
- Dangal has made Rs 9.46 crore in Hong Kong in 10 days
- Dangal released in Hong Kong last month
With Dangal fetching more money from Hong Kong, it's inching closer to the Rs 2000 crore bounty every day.
Dangal has been named the fifth highest earning non-Hollywood film in the world by Forbes. Of Aamir Khan's popularity overseas, trade analyst Komal Nahta told NDTV.com: "Chinese market has opened only for Aamir Khan's films. Even Baahubali 2 did decent business but the films that have done well in China are PK, Dhoom: 3, and now Dangal. The Chinese market has not opened for any other actor the way it has for Aamir. For them, Indian movies means Aamir Khan."
Right after Dangal hit screens in Hong Kong, it quickly made its way to the top of the box office in the region, prompting Mr Adarsh to tweet: "Dangal started at No 2 at Hong Kong BO, but hit No 1 spot on Saturday."
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is based on the story of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat - which was played by Aamir Khan onscreen. Actresses Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and TV star Sakshi Tanwar.
