With steady collections coming in from China, Dangal is set to join Rs 1000-crore club along with Baahubali 2. Aamir Khan film has now collected Rs 977.43 including Rs 744 crore from its India collections. This figure also includes an additional Rs 20 crore coming in from Taiwan. SS Rajamouli directorial Baahubali 2 which has been successfully running into its third week has collected Rs 1,250 crore at worldwide box office. Aamir Khan’s PK had collected Rs 100 crore in China and was the first Indian movie to cross the mark there. The success of Dangal in China could motivate other Indian filmmakers to explore the market in the country.
