When Aamir Khan’s Dangal became the highest grosser of all time, it was thought that this record will remain intact for quite some years. However, within five months, Baahubali 2 has smashed Dangal lifetime record. The film crossed 1000 crore in worldwide which seemed an impossible task for any Indian film in near future.
However, Dangal is again chasing Baahubali 2 records with its release in China. The film has already grossed more than $40 million in China in its 9 days and could do more than $100 million in China if local trade experts are to be believed. Thus there is a possibility that the worldwide gross of Dangal surpasses of Baahubali.
Below is the worldwide collection of Dangal and Baahubali 2 as of now.
- Bahubali 2: 1232 cr (15 days)
- Dangal: 1049 cr (including today’s estimate collection in China)
The difference between both films is 183 crores. Dangal is expected to do $15 million on Sunday. Thus after this weekend, the gap between both films will be shortened to just 100 crores which Dangal can easily cover in the remaining days.
It will be a historic achievement if Aamir Khan again manages to reclaim the all-time number one Indian film in worldwide. Though Bahubali 2 can again come on top as it will finish its lifetime run at 1500 crore from just phase 1 and is already set to release in many non-traditional markets.
