Aamir Khan’s Dangal to get 3 weeks open run

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

One of the most awaited films of 2016, Aamir Khan Dangal is all set to hit the screens on 23 December.

The film will enjoy a Christmas weekend. Though Christmas will fall on Sunday which means it will not get an extra holiday. But this period has always proved beneficiary for Bollywood and considered as the best release period.

Aamir Khan’s Dangal will also get three open weeks just like PK. There were two films scheduled to release on 6 January 2017. One was Vidya Balan starrer Begum Jaan and other was Commando 2. Both of them now have been postponed to avoid Dangal impact at the box office. Even though it will be in its third week but the other producers are not taking any risk.

Thus Dangal will get a solo run until 13th January when Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer OK Jaanu will release. The free run will help Dangal to maintain the number of screens. If the word of mouth is excellent (like PK), then it has a solid chance to go past 300 crore or even higher.

The competition from other films impacts collections even though if word of mouth is solid as new releases take a good number of screens away.


  1. Aamir Always Get 3 week but salman only 2 and some time facing competition in same month sultan got only 9 days free @bollyarena Is Aamir the biggest star than salman plz clear it you always avoid such types of questions

    • yes bro…..see the collection of all the movies of Aamir and Salman …u will get a answer..

  2. thats why Aamir gets 3 open weeks….
    All the industry knows Salmans film are first weekend wonder only …after that no harm to them…
    but in case of Aamir they dont take a risk beacause His films have strong WOM…So it will remain until
    3 weeks…just see the collection of all Aamir movies and Salman will get answer….

  3. Aab to Dangal hi hoga……
    Sultan ko koi nahi bacha sakta aab….
    If the WOM like PK then 370cr
    if the WOM like 3idiots or Lagaan then forget 300cr it will collect 400cr…

    • Only sanju baba can be in 400 cr club…wait for an year he ll be back

    • bhool gaya kya bro sultan 5 days 180cr after that pungi baji thi 300cr kamane mein….

    I am huge fan of salman bhai & I love Aamir too but i am sure now salman is bigger star of bollywood No one can beat him the craze behind him unbeliveable

    Aamir’s movies always get 3 weeks free run, if Salman get 3 weeks then he can also give HGOAT easily……

    Bajrangi Bhaijaan face huge competition from Bahubaali and after 2 weeks Drishaym (Critically Acclaimed Movie) came but still it collects 321cr (PK collects 339cr in 3 weeks free run with plenty of holidays)…
    Sultan got only 9 days free run and then GGM came and took huge number of screen, but still collects 301cr……

    If Salman can collect 321cr and 301cr in just 2 week and 9 Days free run respectively, then Imagine how much his movie collects when he gets 3 weeks of free run with PLENTY OF HOLIDAYS (Don’t forget Christmas and New Year have so many holidays compare to EID which have only 1 or 2 days of holiday)…..

    Just Wait for TZH you (Haters) will get your answer……

    @Parshya, yes but you also see the collection of both the actors:

    BB: 321cr (Huge competition from Bahubaali and only 2 weeks free run)
    Holidays: Only 1 day (And total 2 days in Muslim Dominated Area)
    Average Ticket Price: Least compare to PK and Sultan (After 1st Weekend Ticket Price reduce to Normal)

    Sultan: 301cr (9 Days free run then GGM came and took huge number of screen)
    Holidays: Only 2 Partial Holidays (And Total 2 days in Muslim Dominated Area)
    Average Ticket Price: 2nd highest, less compare to PK (After 1st Extended Weekend Ticket Price reduce to Normal)

    PK: 339cr (3 Weeks Free Run No Competition)
    Holidays: Plenty Of Holidays (Christmas and New Year), School and Colleges remain close for winter
    Average Ticket Price: Highest among all + Ticket Price was remain high for 10 days, and after that it reduce to Normal…..

    So you can see the difference, also not giving any excuse here, I agree that Aamir gives the HGOAT with PK and Salman fails it twice (only with small margin 18cr), but if you look at these factors Salman’s BB and Sultan’s collection is much higher than PK collection……Also everyone in Trade already said that if BB release in Christmas time then it can easily cross PK collection and collect upto 350-375cr……

    Just wait for TZH and you will get your answer…..

    Respect for Both Salman and Aamir…..But Today Salman is Unbeatable in Box Office….

    • aare yar tublight PK ka record tod sakti hein par TZH….ooffffffff
      kya khas hein TZH mein bro……first part is bakwas….holiday period saved that ETT
      AUR ek baat Tublight ne PK ka record toda to bhi Dangal Ka record todne mein aur 3 sal lag jayeng…
      meri bat mano ya na mano…Aamir ka record sirf Aamir hi tod sakta hein ….

    I have no problem whose movie will be HGOTY, I am happy for both Salman and Aamir……

    The only reason I want Salman’s movie to be the HGOTY, is because with Sultan he has a chance to give 3 back to back HGOTY again (Just like 2010, 2011, 2012)…..Because it’s a huge achievement…..
    In 2015 BB
    In 2016 Sultan
    In 2017 Tubelight or TZH (Huge Possibility is that in 2017 Salman movie will be the HGOTY)…..

    But Still Best Of Luck for Dangal…….

    Salman has given a blockbuster in form of ready without even a single holiday with collecrion of around 120 125 cr in the month of june.
    Bb faced competition from 1st day itself with huge movie i.e baahubaki then drishyam cane after 2 weeks.
    Sultan faced competition afta extended weekend from ggm as screen were reduced then kabali and then othera kept on coming that was the reason it took a long time to enter the elite club twice which is done by the only Sultan of bollywood.
    Like ready tamasha was released non holiday what happened with it we all know.
    In recent times i dont think anyone have given blockbuster with a normal release.

  14. ha ha ha ha i accept salman is megastar …no doubt …
    but why many people giving excuses…ye hota to wo hota..
    arre yar last mein kuch nahi hota…..
    vaise to PK 400CR kamati..agar 3 idiot jaisi hoti…
    megastar hein to kay ke liye exuses deto ho….varna maan lo Aamir salman ke age hein….
    Salman has achived everything in his career but still he is not able to deliver ATHG since 22yrs
    that HAHK was Madhuris movie…..
