Aamir Khan’s Dangal has not earned Rs 2000 crore worldwide. Here is the truth

Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal is the highest grossing Indian film of all time and has also shattered all the records at Chinese box-office. It is the highest grossing Indian movie in China. The film which released last December, also starred Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and Zaira Wasim.

Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal’s global collection currently stands at Rs 1864 crore.

Contrary to media reports, superstar Aamir Khan-led blockbuster Dangal has not earned Rs 2000 crore worldwide and currently stands at Rs 1864 crore. The 2016 sports biopic, which has become the highest grossing Indian film of all time, has been setting new records for the film industry globally as it is now also the highest earning Indian movie in China.

With its record-smashing performance, there have been reports from past one week that it has made Rs 2000 crore worldwide. Dangal’s spokesperson, however, clarified today that the film is yet to achieve the milestone figure. “We have been reading a lot of reports saying that Dangal has crossed 2000 crs worldwide. Just to set the record straight, we want to clarify that Dangal’s official worldwide gross collection figure as of Thursday is 1864 crores.”

“We are very happy that our film has been so successful, and what is of most value for Aamir Khan and the entire team of Dangal is the immense love the film has got from the audience across the globe. We are looking forward for the film to release in other untapped territories to reach more audience.”, added the spokesperson.

Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, released on 23 December and is a biopic on the life of Indian wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita, who he trains to be world-class wrestlers. The film stars Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat along with Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar and Aparshakti Khurana. Aamir and Fatima are reuniting for YRF’s Thugs of Hindostan, which is being directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. It also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

          Even these figures are suspected as the film earned this in 2 releases wherein Bahubali figures are only for first release. Secondly Bahubali is still not launched in China. Cross fingers it will thrash Dangal like it has done in India

            Wtf Bahubali Bahubali... have you compared the budget of both the films? baahubali has been made on the budget 4 times more than that of Dangal's. Also Baahubali is a franchis. It's superb success is totally because of its hype created from its first part. if you really want to compared Bahubali with Dangal then compare its first part only.. How much did the first part collected in India.. Was it more than Dangal? Was its China collections more than that of Dangal's? Before bragging about Bahubali compare the canvas of both the films. Dangal is completely based on rural backdrop with no known star cast except Aamir khan.. Still do you find sense in comparing both the films?

              Comparison of any film is done based on its collections and not how much budget the producer spent or it is rural or urban or period movie. Btw, Bahubali2 promotion budget was least compared to any Bollywood movie. . It is stupid to say why anyone is not comparing Bahubali1 here. We are talking about movies which are grossing highest so Bahubali2 is the no 1 Indian movie.

                  what dangal, dangal you are saying , it's the total revenue they talk of, does not matter how much is invested. no need of comparing the two movies, but when it comes to revenues and the topper then Bahubali is surely the winner in India and overseas markets, china is a funny market, they watch AK's movies because he looks chinese...and the wangdu character also made him famous in China

                There were reports that the China theaters screening Dangal were empty, but, all the tickets were booked. Knowing Amir Khan and his humongous ego, this was not a surprise to me. He was involved in mass buying of tickets at Chinese theaters to make his film the biggest blockbuster. He coudnt take it that a South Indian film overtook his film

                          Govt agencies need to investigate! Is this real film earnings or black money coming back. Or still worse - foreign money coming here to create disturbances. But no witch hunt necessary. Only clean investigation!

                            Such "clean" investigations should be the default mode for ALL films, not just this one!
