As they say, slow and steady wins the race. And while we kept calculating the humongous figures of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali: The Conclusion, Aamir Khan’s Dangal has won the race at least in China. The sports biopic has become the first top grossing non-Hollywood film in China by earning $117 million at the box office.

China’s popular ticketing website Maoyan confirmed the news on Tuesday. EntGroup, a leading entertainment consultancy group, also reported that the tickets sales of Dangal, which released in the country on May 5, have crossed 806 million yuan. And these figures are only increasing by the day.

Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman on Saturday extended his wishes to actor Aamir Khan for the success of his film Dangal in China. “Congrats Aamir Khan and team ‘Dangal’ for winning over Chinese hearts again,” Rahman tweeted.
