When the young Chinese, especially the girls, see Dangal’s Geeta Phogat on the podium after a long, hard-fought battle against the prejudiced social norms, they see a bit of themselves in her and recognise the hardships their parents have experienced in the process.
Dangal has amassed $169.06 million in a record 31 days overtaking Kong: Skull Island with a collection of $168.18 million to retain the second spot at China box office this year. This also makes Dangal the fourth-highest grosser of all time in China.
Baahubali 2 seems to be heading into choppy waters as Dangal starring Aamir Khan is getting a one-month extra screening time in China. The Aamir Khan-starrer is a rage in the country and the extension is a proof of that.
In the race between two of the most successful movies of the Indian film industry, Dangal starring Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra are inching towards the glory of Rs 2,000 crore club faster than SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster hit Baahubali 2 starring Prabhas.
Dangal was not a Marvel film or Baahubali. Still, Aamir Khan film was embraced by people of China and that’s reflected in kind of wave it created on China’s social media site: Weibo. In that sense, Dangal’s success has come as a surprise.
Aamir Khan feels China has shown the way when it comes to taking the entertainment business forward and hopes the Indian government also promotes popular art and culture in a big way. He is also open to collaborations if an interesting story comes his way.
Dangal vs Baahubali 2 box office: Dangal has managed to outrun Baahubali 2 at the BO and is among the top 10 earners worldwide for the week.
Released earlier this month in China, Dangal, according to trade sources, so far has minted a whopping Rs 825 crore.
Box office collection of Dangal should not be compared to SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion, as both are good films which are making the country proud, says Aamir Khan.
Baahubali 2 is staying ahead of Dangal and now both film’s collections will be closely monitored by trade pundits.

Dangal: Aamir Khan film is doing well in China and can soon join Baahubali 2 in Rs 1000-crore club.
Even after a month of release, Aamir Khan’s Dangal is giving a tough fight to all the films that have opened in 2017 so far.
Dangal box office collection day 28: Aamir Khan’s film is the second highest-grossing film at the worldwide box office but still has to beat PK. In India, the film has almost made Rs 375 crore.
