dangal, baahubali 2, dangal vs baahubali, baahubali vs dangal, dangal baahubali box office, dangal china collections, baahubali collections Dangal had already crossed a collection of Rs 700 before its China release. With a successful run even at Chinese box office, earning over Rs 800 crore, the Aamir Khan film has become India’s biggest grosser, overtaking Baahubali 2.

Dangal and Baahubali 2 are not done with creating new clubs and demolishing the existing ones. On a day that news came in that Aamir Khan’s Dangal has earned Rs 1000 crore only from China, SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 box office collection from its Hindi version created the Rs 500 crore club in Bollywood. Trade tracker Ramesh Bala tweeted, “#Baahubali2TheConclusion becomes da 1st Hindi movie to create a new club – The ₹ 500 Cr All-India Nett Club! 33 Days India Nett: ₹ 500.25 Cr.” According to Maoyan, a popular ticketing website in China which is connected to most of the theatres in the country, Dangal’s gross earnings has crossed one billion RMB (app Rs 1000 crore), joining the exclusive club of just 32 films in China cinema history.

Dangal is an unstoppable force of nature at the China box office. On Monday, thanks to its stupendous performance in China, Aamir Khan’s film created a new club — the Rs 1700 crore club! Dangal trumped Baahubali 2 on Sunday to become India’s biggest blockbuster ever but it seems the film is not ready to rest on its laurels. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted, “#Dangal is the 1st Indian Movie to enter ₹ 1,700 Cr WW GBOC Club! #China – ₹ 942 Cr #Taiwan – ₹ 32 Cr Row – ₹ 745 Cr Total – ₹ 1,719 Cr.” Baahubali 2 is hoping to repeat Dangal’s feat when it releases in China in some time.

Earlier, Aamir Khan gave some ‘dhobi pachad’ moves in his Dangal, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati fought the big war in Baahubali: The Conclusion. But going by their box office collections, the real clash was between the two blockbusters at the theaters. Seeing the latest figures, Dangal has trumped Baahubali 2 after a ferocious face-off. As per the worldwide collections shared by trade analyst Ramesh Bala, Dangal stands at Rs 1719 crore, while SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 stands at Rs 1633 crore. The Baahubali 2 numbers are till May 28 as Monday’s collections are yet to come in.

 

We saw that 2017 began on a disappointing note with OK Jaanu. The box office got a little respite with Jolly LLB 2, Kaabil and Raees, as both managed to earn Rs 100 crore. This was followed by semi-hits including Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Phillauri. And while the filmmakers kept aiming to enter the 100-crore club, the months of April-May changed the winds at the box office. While Baahubali 2 had a smooth run through the 100-crore mark in just three days, it kept adding an approx Rs 10-12 crore everyday into its kitty. It was soon declared a phenomenon, a trendsetter and a path-breaker in Indian cinema. But as they say, nothing can match Aamir Khan’s perfection. His mammoth hit of last year, Dangal, had its China release in May, and it came neck-to-neck with the SS Rajamouli film.

By Monday, Dangal’s collections stand at Rs 941.51 crore. This is its Week 4 (25 days) earnings in China alone. This  has made the Aamir Khan film China’s biggest non-Hollywood earner ever. Also Dangal is India’s highest box office grosser till date. Baahubali 2 on the other hand earned Rs 1,024 crore net and Rs 1,321 crore gross in India, apart from Rs 302 crore abroad.

 

Though Baahubali 2 lags behind by just a few crores, but seeing the pace with which it is running even after a month of its release, Dangal is surely going to have a tough time maintaining its numero uno hold. Adding to this is Baahubali 2’s impending release in China in June. Can Dangal manage to hold on to its crown? Watch this space for more.

          It is very sad to see how some people generally Indians only commenting with foul language to Mr Amir Khan. This is because of jealousy and hatread towards a particular community. This is what some people have been taught by anti National organisations such as RSS. Even chiniese president has appreciated the movie, but we indians are busy degrading someone who has who doesnt belong to our faith. Dont make the world laugh at us,, kindly be mature. I bet you would sitting on your chair when the national anthem was playing in the movie at the end.

            The Bahuwali 2 film release on 28 April 2017 in India has done extremely well at box office making record earnings. It is reportedly likely to be released in China in July 2017. Film Dangal has also done very well around April and after. It has reportedly been liked by Chinese Premier Ximping during his meeting with Prime Minister Narender Modi disclosed yesterday on 9 June 2017 at Astana SCO Summit. These news reports are obviously pointing to meaningfulness of predictions of this Vedic astrology writer in article ” 2017 – an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. It was predicted that a period of four months from April to July in year 2017 looks to be promising for film industry in India.

                  Do you believe that an Amir Khan movie made more money in China than it made in India and rest of the world combined, that too all within a week? We all know China has been funding stan to make it impossible for India to attack stan without hurting China's economic ets and drawing China into a conflict. Has chinese government found a way to launder money through Khan movies for its nefarious designs in India, just like Dawood has been doing?
