Demonetisation or not, Aamir Khan and the box office performance of his Dangal has proved that good content always wins. Much like a bad carpenter who blames his tools, producers of Bollywood had diplomatically pointed fingers at demonetisation for failing to go up high in the box office ladder. But Aamir Khan’s Dangal have been a living proof that nothing can stop film buffs from going to the theatres if as a superstar you promise to deliver a film with the right kind of content and inspiration. With the first week BO collections, the film is expected to enter Rs 200-crore club.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Thursday, “#Dangal is heading for ₹ 190 cr+ Week 1… Should accumulate HUGE total in Weekend 2 as well… Expected to cross ₹ 200 cr on 2nd Fri…” Talking about Dangal’s total box office collection in six days, he wrote, “#Dangal Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr, Sun 42.41 cr, Mon 25.69 cr, Tue 23.09 cr, Wed 21.20 cr. Total: ₹ 176.98 cr. India biz. MIND-BOGGLING!”
The film is doing great business internationally as well, “#Dangal crosses ₹ 100 cr Overseas… Going strong… OVERSEAS – Till Wed: $ 15.01 million [₹ 102.25 cr]… Some screens yet to report.”
