Dangal crosses Rs 100 cr mark in 3 days


Dangal, the Aamir Khan-starrer sports drama is just going strong at the box office. In just three days of its release, Dangal has crossed Rs 100 crore mark and is just setting new benchmarks.

As per the latest box office figures shared by Taran Adarsh, Dangal has hits a century. Taran tweeted, “#Dangal hits CENTURY… Crosses Rs 100 cr mark… Sun biz was HUMONGOUS… Smashing RECORDS… Setting new BENCHMARKS…”
“#Dangal Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr, Sun 42.35 cr. Total: Rs 106.95 cr [incl Tamil and Telugu]. India biz. FANTABULOUS!,” Taran added.

Can Dangal be a new phenomenon for filmmakers? As a film, Aamir Khan’s Dangal was not entirely a new concept for a Hindi film. We have had enough sports and biopic films in the past 10 years. Its biggest challenge was comparisons with another wrestling drama Sultan released just a few months back.

Yet, within three days of release, the film is getting unprecedented love from the audience. It’s visible in box office numbers, social media comments and packed theatres.
