Aamir Khan’s Dangal earned Rs 3.21 crore on its twentieth day, taking its total to a huge Rs 356.90 crore at the domestic box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the figures, he wrote, “#Dangal [Week 3] Fri 6.66 cr, Sat 10.80 cr, Sun 14.33 cr, Mon 4.35 cr, Tue 4.03 cr, Wed 3.21 cr. Total: ₹ 356.90 cr. India biz. ATBB.” Its twenty first day may again see a rise in business as it’ll enter into its fourth weekend, though new films like OK Jaanu, Haraamkhor and xXx: Return Of Xander Cage is releasing, so it’s to be seen how it goes.
With Rs 350 crore, Aamir Khan has become the first actor in the history of Bollywood to have his film going past the said number domestically. In fact Aamir Kan was the first one to break into Rs 100 crore club with Ghajini back in 2008, into Rs 200 crore club with 3 Idiots in 2009, into Rs 250 crore club with Dhoom 3 in 2013, into Rs 300 crore club with PK in 2014 and now in Rs 350 crore club with Dangal. With the super success of Dangal, Aamir Khan has proved that he is his own competition. The theme or rather the dialogue of Sultan, “Sultan ko sirf ek aadmi hara sakta hai khud Sultan”, is apt for Aamir Khan’s havoc at the box office, just replace Sultan with Aamir and there you have it.
