Dangal box office
Aamir Khan's wrestling drama Dangal has now become the highest grossing Hindi film of all times after beating his earlier film PK's lifetime box office collections (INR 340.8 crore) in just 17 days of its release. The movie has now earned INR 345.30 crore and continues to earn in double figures even in its third weekend at the box office, moving rapidly towards INR 350 crore mark.

The movie, which is based on the real-life story of wrestler Mahavir Phogat and his two daughters- Geeta and Babita Phogat, has not only struck gold at the box office but also broke several records, setting new benchmarks at the box office.

Dangal now holds the numero uno position in the highest grossing Hindi films followed by PK on second position and Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 at third, fourth and fifth positions respectively.

Aamir has once again proved his mettle and set an example of being the perfectionist in his own work. Aamir’s Ghajini (2008) was the first movie to cross INR 100 crore mark, then 3 Idiots (2009) was the first movie to cross INR 200 mark. PK (2014) was the first movie to cross INR 300 crore mark and now, Dangal will be Aamir's first movie to cross INR 350 crore mark at the box office.

Dangal is also dominating the international market earning INR 180.58 crore so far, all thanks to its strong word of mouth, its gripping storyline, its authentic wrestling matches and techniques and the intense training that the Dangal daughters both Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra who played the role of younger and grown-up Geeta and Babita, respectively on screen. And of course, the perfectionist Aamir Khan who gave his sweat and blood to look for his part of younger and ageing wrestler Mahavir Phogat, through intense weight-gain and weight-loss trainings.
