Dangal would have done same business without Aamir Khan: Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Indian film director and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has made a controversial statement while praising Dangal. He has said that Dangal would have done the same business if there was no Aamir Khan.

Yesterday he was present at Dangal success party and while talking to the media he said that Aamir Khan is no king.

“People say that Aamir Khan is king. But he is no king, the film’s story is the king. If there was Hrithik Roshan in Dangal in place of Aamir, it would have done the same business. The king of Dangal is not the producers but the audience and the story writer. Aamir has also done many films which have done poor business. It proves that story is the king, queen and everything.”

Dangal released last year had gone on to smash all records and has become all time grosser by grossing over 385 crore. Aamir Khan has earlier worked with Vinod Chopra Productions in 3 Idiots and PK and both of them also became all time grossers. Though their track record without Aamir is poor.

    • yeah….and DDLJ or HAHK or Dabang or KKHH would have done the same business if they had Ranbir or Varun or Sushant in them!!!

      hahahahaha

      No doubt Dangal is a great script but its Aamir as a film maker who takes it beyond excellence. Also presence of Aamir (one of the biggest superstars) helps the film reach out to the PAN India audience……

      Films like Dangal, BB, PK, 3I, DDLJ were great stories but presence of most loved stars help it reach out to many many more people!!!

      What VVC meant is that Dangal would have a been a big hit wit someother actor as well……obviously it wouldn’t have done the same business!!

      • even salman and srk bad script movie cross 100 cr…ranbir ,varun ,,sushant abhi ye akshay , srk , salman ke sam ne .child star hai.. @lisa app kya school m ho kya ?? kisi ko follow krne se pahle dekhlo ki vo real us kabil hai kya ???

    megastar..megastar…main hazar bar bolta hu…Amir is nothing wihtout Script…
    in good script….sushant singh rajpot…also make MS dhoni 150cr…

    so stardom tab pata chale jab avg script ko dekhne bhi aaye…like HNY,KICK,DILWALE, PRDP…
    so with avg script sallu and SRK giving hit pe hit…but Mr. Retaketionist….strong script…

    so Aajj PAPA Raju ne pol khol diya Amir the megastar…LOL

    thansk Raju sir…Raju already proved with Sanjay dutt MUNNA BHAI MBBS…when Sanjay dutt stardom were nothing…

        Vidhu and hirani…two in one…..kya line kahi hai above..dil khush

      • ACP Rathore..Wo koi doctor nahi hai….SRK ka faltu Fan hai ..Dear Zindagi se dhaapa naam SRK ka …

        Srk kitne bhi faltu picture kare aur flop bhi ho jaaye, to bhi 100 bahane nikalenge….Aur aamir blockbuster pe blockbuster de to bhi usko credit nahi denge….As if script based movies like Neerja Pink and all did 300 or even 200 CR.

        Baat to ye hai k aaj kal SRK Ranveer Singh, Ajay Devgan aur Hrithik jaiso k saath bhi clash karne layak nahi raha …Agar itna hi bada mega star hai to doosri movies pit jaani chahiye…Par jab non clash movies jaise Dilwale Fan Dear Zindagi hi na chale..To aur kya bolne ki zaroorat hai kise ….Naam badal le bhai “Dr.Jahangir Khan ” flop aa rahe hai …Sorry flops baras rahe hai 😂

  4. Movie bahut badiya h par yeh jo bol rha h waise kuch nhi h pink neerja bhii badiya thii par unka 100cr bhii nhi hua aur sunn agar aamir nhi hota to Christmas nhi milte aur Christmas nhi milte to ghanta itna collection hota..

    • @befikre Bewaquf nerja n pink kb release hui wo dkh phle wrna dangal b non holiday p hoti na toh 200 he jata wo…

      • Content ke bawzood,pink aur neerja 385 cr chodo,285 cr chodo,185 cr chodo,85 cr bhi nahi kar payi thi.woh kyun bala.

        jawaab de vidhu vinod chopra.

    sir ye bhi bolo….Amir because of you…3yede…strong script, PK religion provoke…so anyone can make movie hit..example Bombay….now Danagal realism of Phogat…and Dhoom3 brand….so this all success not bcz
    The laash actor but due to strong scripts…Kya bat boli hai..sir aapne dil khush kar diya…ab sare Amirian jo aapki izzat karte the shock me hai…

    or fake amir…i doing 2 years for phogat charector, 3 years for pk and balh blah…feko sala…he is eying only when xmas is free so he can release…thats it…

  6. Without Aamir, it would have been a film of :-

    200cr club(if akki, Mr Roshan, Shah would have played the role)
    250-300(if Sallu miyaan was der)

    AND It is 385 because of the magic of Aamir and his talent.
    ITS A FACT, and you guys can’t ignore it.

  7. abey bewkoof dr,nothing without content chutiye.Dhoni did 120cr not 150cr not even 1/3rd of dangal.ab bol galat prove hue na.aur ha ghajini aur D3 masterpiece thi na jinhe aamir ne ATH/ATBB bana diya tha aur tum HNY,KICK,Dilwale ki bakwaas kar rahe ho,in 3 mein se kaun si ATHG/ATBB hai?jawaab de iska BC.
    mbbs ki bakwaas kar raha hai,woh bas hit thi koi ATBB nahi aur uska adjusted nett dangal ka 1/3rd bhi nahi hai.

    • Dr. Jhangir Khan Reply

      hahaha ghajini…tera baap Amir south me bani thi..copy paste…ko kaha le ke aa raha hai..

      ghajini is not first 100cr movie but SRK with hindi original script RA ONE….got it

      SRK no need to review his career while…Amir 2006 miserably flailed dangal pandey and mediocre movie TZP…so he remake Ghajini…

      • wah remake banane se movie kaise ATBB/ATHG ho jayegi,yeh kya chutiya logic hai. OK Jaanu bhi south remake hai,woh ATBB ho gayi kya.tere ko ek aur cheez batata hu,jis kick ko tu uchaal raha hai woh kick bhi remake hai,woh ATBB/ATHG kyun nahi ho payi. is baat ka jawab de.agar TZP tere hisaab se mediocre hai to jaa ka mental hospital mein bharti ho,aur ha mMP aur TZP ke beech mein RDB aur fanna bhi aayi thi.

    Raju Sir aap kaha the itne dino…se…thanks a lot..

    bollywwod bole tu SRK and SALLU…not this ded futiya chutiya….who surrender to SRK stardom in 1996 filmfare award…

    • As per ur logic,even SRK and sallu r also dedh futiya as they all r having almost same height.first time a blind SRK has bashed SRK.Thank you.

  9. I dont think so… the collections depend on the actors working in it… aamir khan is a brand.. if Hrithik would have worked surely it would have reached the amount but by manipulating the figures,the way its being done for kaabil right now

  10. Dr. Jhangir Khan Reply

    Amirian Shocked….SRKian rocks….
    fake preparations for Dangal…nothing…special….Bhomi pednekar also prepare hesrself in 6 months she increase her wait by 35kg…and lost ti now..

    viday balan also gain wait for dirty picture….so whats new amir done in Dangal…nothing script done wonder on box office…

    so now my questions is is Amir competing this ladies or what??? becz heroism movies he failed since 90’s latest taalash…super disaster….

    Kudos to vidhu vinod chopra!!!! He snatched words from my mouth

  12. agree with Vinod kuki Amir ka utna role b bh th jtna 3 idiots n pk m th bt fr b award mila ….agr wohi amir ya koi or b rhta toh 200+ krta he xmas m srk n sk ko chhod k.

  13. Fact he is still 3rd position i agree he gave his all but about stardom he is 3rd. Srk Gave 26 cr in clash aamir in solo so here is the proof

    • 26 cr republic day par kiya tha,opening day of raees was 20cr,while dangal was 29.5 cr,29.5 cr aur 20cr tere hisaab se barabar hai kya.agar hai to jaa kar primary school mein bharti ho.

      • Abe tuze bhi admission lena chahiye.. without clash dangal 29.5..aur raees with clash 20.2 cr..

    • kal maine salman ko best of luck diya…tune bhi man liya aur aaj achank se girgit ki tarah rang badla.
      abey muze bata non holiday opening kiske naam par hein..sallu ki majority movies holiday release hein.
      top 2 weekend Aamir ke naam hein with only single sunday.
      kaha gaye sallu aur SRK…Sallu is megastar ..my foot.

    • which movie gives 26cr opening in clash on non holiday…dimag ka ilajj kar le
      raees 20cr
      kabil-10cr
      highest non holiday opener…
      d3-36cr
      Dangal-30cr
      bb-27cr

    Ek Truth:- 30 november 1995 ko Tingu Amir Ki Movie Akele Hum Akele Tum Aur SRK Ki Movie Ram Jaane Me Clash Hua Tha……….. Result AHAT Collection 5 crore Flop Hui Thi……… Aur Ram Jaane Collection 9.50 crore Above Average Thi………. Shuru Me Hi SRK Ne Tingu Amir Ki Maar Li Thi………. Aur Us K Baad Hi Tingu Amir Clash Se Darr Gaya Tha………….. hahahahaha fussssssssssss

  23. vidhu vinod is completely wrong — seems comment made with some personal issues..

    srk – rithik – akshay anybody in dangal would have max did 250 to 275 cr.. perhaps salmon presence it could have touched thus figure .

    now let’s see what sanjay biography will do business with raju hirani — agreed hirani is no. 1 director — now projection for film is for 150-175 cr. if salman or aamir would have been part projections would have been 300-325 cr+. so that’s the difference.. agreed story and direction is also imp but star power has perhaps upper hand in today’s box office situation where film is dependent Hit or flop on 1st weeks business .

    that’s the reason below avg or dull movie like bodyguard is blockbuster.

    Seems vidhu is jelious of raju hirani and aamirs close friendship — hmmm…business…as vinod is completely dependent on hirani..

    movie like kaabil which was appreciated but doing life time business 85-88 cr. even though clash aamir presence would have ensured 160-170 cr +

  24. karr lo baat… vidhu go mirchi lag gai, lagta hi dangal ka collection hazam nahi hua.. q k o PK ka producer tha.. usko accha nahi laga uski film ka record tutna.. hahhahah shame on you vidhu.. you are a pure budhuu..

  25. Good scripts and script writers are alway there in the industry… Why Srk and Sallu cant select good script and have a huge success’ like PK and Dangal…

    Answer is simple it need lots of guts to play challenging characters…

    At the age of 44 Aamir played the role of Rancho- a teenager college boy’s character…

    An alien’s character in PK

    When sallu n Srk playing the characters younger to their age, Aamir did an old man’s character in Dangal…

    All these are challenging roles… Srk n Sallu does not have the courage to do such roles….

    He always plays challenging roles that is why success is following him.
