5 records created by Aamir Khan’s Dangal in China

dangal-china

Trust only Aamir Khan to create records in a foreign land and that too in China. It’s unbelievable how Dangal is performing there. Masses’ massive liking for their Uncle Khan or Uncle Aamir has translated in unprecedented earnings in our neighbouring country. Nobody ever envisioned an Indian film creating such records in China of all places. The country has only recently started accepting more Indian films and Dangal has already managed to make a lot of money out of it. We told you as to why China is crushing on this wrestling drama. The skewed boy-to-girl ratio in both India and China has become the common thread which seems to have worked in the film’s favour there. No wonder people in China are lapping it up even now. Dangal will earn even more because reports suggest that there are no big releases this weekend. But before it adds some more records to its kitty, here are the five important ones that you must know about. Mind you, all this has been accumulated in a foreign land and not India.

Highest number of screens for an Indian film

Dangal released in over 7000 screens in China, which is a first for any Indian film. PK only had half of that number and yet managed to earn somewhere around Rs 140 crore there. The huge numbers of screens is also one of the reasons behind Dangal’s stupendous success in China. But content is what people are raving the most about.

Highest opening day for an Indian film

By earning Rs 13.19 crore, Dangal managed to earn the highest first day numbers for the film.

Highest opening weekend in China

With an opening day so big, it was only obvious for the film to post an enviable first weekend total. The number made us dizzy with excitement.

Highest grossing Indian movie

As of now Dangal has earned a whopping 446 crore + at the box office and is gearing up to attain the Rs 450 crore mark soon. Now it is the highest grossing Indian movie in China. It earned Rs 200 crore in just one week.

First Hindi film to earn more in China than India

Dangal had made a lot of money in India as well and its lifetime collection rounded off to Rs 387.36 crore. The film is racing towards Rs 450 in China. Yes, that did happen!

Aamir Khan is perhaps the only Bollywood actor who has such a huge fan following in China. Only he can make something like that happen!

Kahani mein twist! Aamir Khan to fall in love with Katrina and NOT Fatima in Thugs?

Aamir-katrina

When Fatima Sana Shaikh got finalised for Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan, there was this whole lotta fuss about how can Fatima play Aamir’s lover considering they shared a father-daughter relationship in Dangal. Some even looked down upon Aamir for being the only superstar to come in terms with this awkward onscreen casting. But guess, everyone who concluded even before knowing what the film is all about, will be in for a major surprise after reading this latest report. Turns out Aamir will not even fall for Fatima in the film for his love interest is going to be none other than the film’s second lead actress, Katrina Kaif. Yes!

A DNA report suggests how Fatima’s role in Thugs Of Hindostan leans more towards action and sword fighting while Aamir falls in love with Katrina as the story proceeds. Reveals the source, “The script of TOH required two actresses – a raw, rough and tough Indian girl who is a part of Aamir’s gang of Thugs and in love with his character and a beautiful British lady with whom Aamir’s character falls in love with. While the Indian girl will be played by Fatima, Katrina plays the British girl. Director Vijay Krishna had said that the role of the girl is pivotal to the film and Fatima was a ‘gifted performer of action’. ” Now does that calm down your emotions against how can an actor play a father and a lover to the same actress? The director further revealed how Fatima is soon going to take up ‘sword-fighting’ to get her act right for the film as he said, “Fatima will learn how to be skillful sword-fighter in the film as her role is action oriented.”

Meanwhile, Fatima remains unfazed by the reaction around her casting as Aamir’s ‘lover’ in Thugs Of Hindostan. She said, “I knew that people are going to think like this. I am an actor after all. Suppose if I hadn’t acted in Dangal, and got an offer to act opposite Aamir sir, I would have, of course, said yes. Even today, if I am asked to act opposite Shah Rukh Khan, I would stand in the frame immediately. When you have grown up watching these stars and are fond of them, you would definitely want to work with them. I used to get disheartened and sad (when I heard such things), because I thought, ‘Me playing his daughter in the film shouldn’t be the reason for me not getting the part’. There have been so many instances of (female) actors playing mothers, daughters and lovers (with the same male actors). That’s our job, and you keep playing different  characters from different age groups. So, i don’t have any issues.”

Your thoughts?

Photo Alert: Aamir Khan Does Not Look Like This Anymore!

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

Apart from being a perfectionist, Aamir Khan is known to be experimental with his looks with each new film. Be it his cool hairstyle for Rang De Basanti, his funky beard in Dil Chahta Hai, or his paunch for Dangal – Aamir truly gets into the skin of his character.

And the man has done it again! Recently, Aamir was spotted with a… nose piercing! We don’t know if he actually got himself pierced or it’s a clip-on, but going by his track record, it would be safe to bet on the former.

Check out his piercing in this selfie posted by Sushant Singh Rajput:

Suits you, Aamir!

Here’s What Aamir Khan Thinks About Nepotism In Bollywood!

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

In the past few weeks, we have seen a volleyball of accusations regarding the existence of nepotism in the film industry. Kangana Ranaut accused Karan Johar of being the flag-bearer of this practice, and later Alia Bhatt & Sonam Kapoor also shared their views on the same.

Recently, Aamir Khan was asked to give his take on this raging debate. Although the actor chose not to comment on the ongoing clash between Kangana and KJo, he gave his opinion on nepotism to a leading daily:

It is a natural human emotion to try and help people you love and care for. It doesn’t have to be someone from your family. In my work, I strive to not allow that feeling to interfere. I feel that it’s my responsibility as a creative person towards the audience and give them the most importance. I try to not bring in (those) emotions in my work.”

That makes a lot of sense!

Dangal box office collection day 16: Aamir Khan’s film earns Rs 170.49 crore at the overseas market

Dangal

Dangal

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!

Aamir Khan starrer Dangal is being widely appreciated world over by audiences and the love for the film and its girls have been pouring in since its release. Amidst all of this came Geeta and Babita Phogat‘s real life coach PR Sondhi’s allegations against Aamir. He said Khan distorted facts and hurt his reputation by portraying the role of the coach in negative light.

In a conversation with Deccan Chronicle, Aamir opened up about these allegations against him and said,

In every biopic, a little fiction is added, but the essence of their story is kept intact.”

True. We’ll have to wait to see what the coach thinks about this now.

Aamir Khan‘s nail biting and anxiety paid off as Dangal opened to full theatres last week and is garnering appreciation from all quarters of the country. Apart from the talent treasure, Aamir, the film has been praised for its plot, and the phenomenal acting by the girls – Fatima Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra .

The film follows the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his journey of training two of India’s most acclaimed woman wrestlers, Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari. What, then, was the reaction of the real life stars on watching themselves in reel life? Speaking to IndiaToday, Geeta Phogat (portrayed by Fatima Sheikh) revealed that she despised watching the scene when she wrestled against her own father, as it brought back bitter memories. She said:

I did not enjoy watching that scene a lot as I realised how I treated my father and that I started thinking that I am some pahalwan (heavyweight). I did not like that scene as I got emotional watching it. It is not that I wrestled only once with my father, he used to test us in the akhada often. But I loved watching the entire movie.”

That particular scene was definitely an emotional ride!

Aamir Khan: It’s very unfortunate and sad that people think I ghost direct my films

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan is known as the Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood. Since the beginning of this millennium every role he has done, he has done it with so much aplomb that he gets into the skin of the character and becomes the character. But as they say, there is always a downside and in this case it is the fact that, he has often been accused of interfering in the process of film making and making it difficult for the director. Basically the allegation that he ghost directs all his films and that’s the reason he has a hundred percent ratio when it comes to the success of his films in a last decade and half.

Refuting all the claims once and for all, Aamir Khan said, when he was called as the guest on Koffee With Karan season 5, “I wish it was true ya, it’s very unfortunate and sad people think this way but it has been made by my directors.” He went to say that he was even talking about it with his latest director Nitesh Tiwari and revealed how he never even used to be around when scenes with other actors were being shot. He said, “During Dangal, I used to not even be on the set when he (Nitesh Tiwari) was shooting for his scenes with the girls, director is the person whose vision we are following, I will help his vision but not go according to my vision, had I followed my vision all my films would have looked similar.”

Overall the episode was quite fun and it fun and riveting to see the different side of Aamir Khan. His camaraderie with his onscreen daughters was the best part about the show.

Releasing on December 23, Dangal, is a biopic made on the life of real life wrestler Mahaveer Phogat and his quest to win Gold for India through his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat. The film stars Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.
