- "An unprecedented success for an Indian film," an industry tracker says
- Dangal is the 33rd film in Chinese cinema to cross this mark
- Aamir's Dangal released in China on May 5
Dangal ruled the Chinese box office for over 15 days. However, after Pirates of the Caribbean 5's release, Aamir's film is standing strong at the second position, PTI quoted Maoyan, a popular ticketing website in China.
Of the film's record-shattering success, Aamir told IANS, "While we were hoping that Dangal connects with the people of China, not in our wildest dreams we thought that this is the kind of connect we would have. It was unprecedented. We are pleasantly surprised. The reason it has become so huge, according to me, in China is that they connected on an emotional level with the story, the characters and the moments."
Till Sunday (May 28), Dangal had earned over Rs 888 crore in China, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Here's the last week collection of Dangal.
