Aamir Khan raises the bar too damn high with Dangal

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Aamir Khan is known as a trendsetter in Bollywood. The actor has created many milestones in his career as far the box office is concerned. But it looks like that with Dangal, Aamir Khan has raised the bar too damn high. It will be very tough for any actor to match these historic numbers.

A Bollywood release can definitely challenge its lifetime collection in India. But the overseas and worldwide numbers will be impossible to cross unless it does a miraculous business in China too. Dangal worldwide gross is inching closer to 2000 crore. While the overseas gross is $200 million plus thanks to the historic business in China.

Dangal 8th Day Box Office Collection

Just like Bahubali 2 is a rare phenomena which comes once in a while, Dangal is also among these ones of its kind films. Indian films made on a big scale will never be as successful as Dangal in China because their audience will opt for Hollywood which has better VFX. Same goes for typical masala films which have party songs and dance. So it has to be something special and emotional like Dangal which can strike a chord with Chinese.

After it will finish its box office run, the difference between Dangal and the highest non-Aamir Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be 1375 crores which is too damn high. Needless to remind that other stars still have to beat PK in India & worldwide and PK and Dhoom 3 in overseas.

    Dangal was Released in India,
    At the time of DeMonetisation &
    With No Full Holidays.
    And In China
    Dangal was Boycotted by the Biggest Multiplex Chain Wanda.
    Otherwise It would have Crossed 2000Cr even
    1935CR in Historical Milestone in Indian cinema,
    Aamir Khan is Game Changer Record Maker,Record Breaker & TrendSetter.

    The word “Damn” is a expression of anger and some time it’s uses to express surprise factor but in either case it is uses in verbal communication not in written practice. Therefore, it’s important for a professional website like bollyarena to be mindful of these things to attract variety of readers who are interested in Bollywood news. Thanks

    • So this article says dangal is a big hit in china but it won’t be the case everytime. So dangal is a big achievement for Aamir and dangal team which is now accepted by BOI. READ THE ARTICLE carefully

      • arey yaar.. ek numbr ka gonchu ho tum.. just a glimpse..

        Dangal has rocked the box office in China as it looks like finishing at around $190 million which is over 1200 crore but this does not mean much to Hindi cinema or Indian cinema and does not alter the International picture for Indian films..

        samaj aaya?.. nahi??..chod de yaar, u r like any other aamir fan deprived of brain and full on arrogance.. wierd combination :D

        • What did you understand. The achievement is good for dangal and Aamir but it won’t help much for other Indian cinema in china or no scope for regular Indian movie due to restricted release policy of Chinese govt. If you can’t understand clear meaning then don’t come here to bark. At least don’t teach aamir fans. You dumb people shamelessly accept aamir makes good movies that’s why it earns more money not because of stardom. But still you dumb people like non aamir bad movies just because you hate the actor. This is the best example of you people being a dumb.

            • @Mahaveer
              We Aamir fans are honest and we love aamir because of his good movies and performance. Others in fact accept shamelessly that they like inferior movie or actor. Which means we Aamir fans are rich with our choice and others are dumb and they don’t mind being dumb

    • Anyway let everyone read the very first full paragraph

      Dangal has rocked the box office in China as it looks like finishing at around $190 million which is over 1200 crore but this does not mean much to Hindi cinema or Indian cinema and does not alter the International picture for Indian films. The success could be huge for Aamir Khan as it may turn out that he could be the first mainstream India star to crossover, it may not be the States but China is the next biggest market. This only time will tell, a genuine crossover is when someones films are competing with local films of that market and that has happened with Dangal.
