- It was reported that Dangal crossed Rs 2,000 crore mark worldwide
- "Happy that our film has been so successful," said Aamir's spokesperson
- In India, Aamir Khan's Dangal made over Rs 375 crore
"We have been reading a lot of reports saying that Dangal has crossed 2,000 crores worldwide. Just to set the record straight, we want to clarify that Dangal's official worldwide gross collection figure as of Thursday is 1,864 crore," said Aamir's spokesperson in a statement.
Despite the busting of this particular myth, there's still plenty to celebrate. Dangal still holds several other records - most recently, Forbes placed it number five on the list of highest earning non-Hollywood films in the world.
"We are very happy that our film has been so successful, and what is of most value for Aamir Khan and the entire team of Dangal is the immense love the film has got from the audience across the globe. We are looking forward for the film to release in other untapped territories to reach more audience," Aamir's spokesperson said.
Dangal stars Aamir Khan as Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, father of wrestlers Geeta and Babita, played by actresses Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra. TV star Sakshi Tanwar played Mahavir Phogat's wife Daya.
