Aamir Khan‘s Dangal has not only performed well at the domestic box office, but the overseas market as well. And on day 16, the movie added another Rs 4.42 crore to continue its magical run at the International box office. The total tally of Dangal now stands at Rs 170.49 crore after sixteen days. Considering that it was released in just 1000 screens abroad, Aamir’s film has done very well. In fact, the collections are expected to grow this weekend too. As trade analyst Taran Adarsh mentioned on Twitter, “#Dangal crosses $ 25 million… OVERSEAS – Total till Fri, 6 Jan: $ 25.01 million [Rs 170.49 cr]… Biz to escalate again over weekend!”
The cumulative collections from North America itself is now at USD 10.49 Million (Rs 71.50 crore). Dangal has also crossed the 7 million mark in the Gulf region now with a reported collection of USD 7.16 million (Rs 48.80 crore). In the U.K., the movie’s collection is currently at USD 3.44 million (Rs 23.44 crore), while in Australia the cumulative collection is now USD 2.35 million (Rs 16.01 crore).
Earlier we thought Dangal would manage to earn only Rs 175 crore at the overseas market, but with the business set to increase (courtesy the strong word of mouth publicity), we expect it to earn anywhere between Rs 180-200 crore in its lifetime run.
At the domestic market, Dangal has collected a staggering Rs 320.16 crore in just 15 days. With the positive word of mouth publicity still flowing for the movie and no big release this week, Aamir Khan’s movie will have a free run till January 13. Here we expect the movie to touch the Rs 350 crore mark, making it the first film to do so. This would also make Dangal the highest grossing Bollywood film ever. Anyway, till then, stay tuned to BollywoodLife as we get you all the latest box office updates about the movie right here!
