Aamir Khan receives heartwarming letters from theatre owners after Dangal

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s shock demonetisation move adversely affected the business of theatre owners. Films like Rock On 2, Focre 2, Tum Bin 2, Kahaani 2 and Befikre flopped at the box office. Some single screens have to be shut down and others were on the verge of being down due to the poor performance of Bollywood films. But then came Aamir Khan’s Dangal that saved them from being out of business.

Last year witnessed a lull by the Hindi film industry but Aamir’s Christmas bonanza proved to be the tide changer in the economics of the industry. The actor was touched reading the emotional letters written to by single screen theatre owners to thank him.

He says, “It has been a very exciting and fulfilling journey. When I look back at my career, all my decisions – on the face of it – have mostly been impractical and risky, with the latest instance being Dangal.”

“Also, I have been able to do the kind of work that I believe in. Not all of us are lucky enough to be in the position where you can choose to do what you want. I feel very grateful to be in that position. I am able to do the work that I love”.

The letters addressed by single screen theatre owners expressed how the years 2015 and 2016 witnessed a major low by the film business, making it difficult for them to survive.

Dangal which released on December 23, has earned a whopping 376 crore at the Indian box office.

    • If you go like this one day you will die in frustration, because Aamir probably continue to give superhit after superhit and he is not hanging up his boot soon.

    not because of notebandi

    Ghajini brought Single Screens Audience back then again Dhoom 3 broke all the Records in Single Screens & Now Dangal.
    Again saying Demonetisation affected Dangal at Single Screens and If Christmas & NY had fallen on any other day Dangal would have crossed 425 Cr (Biopic Movie).
    Only Brand Aamir Khan can do this-
    Hats Off Sir
    Indian Cinema is nothing without Aamir Khan.

      Congratulations Parshya
      When You predicted 370
      You got trolled
      TBH Even I was not very confident
      BCoz Dangal didnt have any X-Factors i.e Masala,Leading Actress,Release Date,Demonetisation but I was expecting 310-325 Cr.
      But After 5 Week Dangal will finish with lifetime collections of around 370 Cr.(Hindi) & Overall-385 Cr.
      Exact Same.
      So Your Prediction>>Arena Team Prediction>>>>>>>>Other 2 Rs Sites Prediction

  7. kashhh…..ye notebandi na hoti aur cristmas and new year holiday sunday pe nahi hote to 400cr arram se karti.

  8. I agree but because of sequel
    Factor rock on2, force2, kahani2 should have taken good openings and coz of aditya chopra befikre should have had a weekend of at least 40cr+ but demonetisation messed any chances film has I mean even ok jaanu was not that bad it was a one time watch should have done 40cr lifetime. It’s going to get harder for new actors now to survive I think only salman aamir srk akshay and hrithik will be able to deliver others may struggle. That’s one of the reasons I think Rangoon will flop.

  9. Akki all time disaster king of flop Reply

    Akki fan disaster.. humble request all khan fan boycott akki movie..

  10. Akshay Kumar in front of Aamir and Salman Khan is a child actor. Maybe SRK days are over but he is still better crowd puller than Akki. So stop comparing him with Khans. No need to boycott Akki movies anyway it will do at max 125 Crore
