Dangal managed to earn Rs 155.35 crore in India till Tuesday, making it one of the biggest hits of the year. The Aamir Khan film is also the third highest grosser of 2016 after Sultan and Jungle Book, which collected Rs 300.45 crore and Rs 181.75 crore respectively. With Assassins’ Creed as the big release of this week, the Dangal juggernaut shows no signs of stopping. Dangal which collected Rs 29.78 crore, Rs 34.82 crore and Rs 42.35 crore during its first weekend, is also expected to get a place among Aamir’s other films that have raked Rs 300 crore, mainly PK.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh earlier tweeted, “#Dangal Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr, Sun 42.35 cr, Mon 25.48 cr, Tue 23.07 cr. Total: ₹ 155.53 cr. India biz. AWESOME!” He revealed the international figures too, “#Dangal races towards ₹ 100 cr in the international arena… OVERSEAS – Till Tue: $ 13.82 million [₹ 94.29 cr]. Some screens yet to report.”

Dangal has been directed by Nitesh Tiwari and tells the real-life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his daughters to become world-class wrestlers. The makers of Dangal are also set to give to the audience its virtual making experience. This virtual reality film will allow viewers to get a first-hand experience of its making at different locations. One will be able to see all the hard work and patience that went behind making the blockbuster in a 360-degree view video.

This is what Dangal has made at box office till now.

In terms of gross collections (Indian figures are always in nett collections), Dangal currently has a worldwide collection of 342.09 crore. Aamir’s PK is the top earner of all times with Rs 792 crore worldwide in terms of gross collection. Salman Khan takes the next two spots with Sultan (Rs 626 crore) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 589 crore). Aamir’s Dangal stands at number 13 at present. But can it break the record of Aamir’s PK which is Bollywood’s highest grosser till date?
