This is Aamir’s fifth movie to make it to the club after ‘Ghajini’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Dhoom 3’ and ‘PK’. The film has also performed well in international box office. Despite of having different story lines, ‘Dangal’ was compared to Salman Khan starrer ‘Sultan’, and too much to the disappointment of Aamir’s fans, the movie couldn’t break the opening day earning of the latter.
It is still to be known, how the coming days will affect the flick’s business. It is expected that the movie will continue its winning streak and will make many records.
On a related note, ‘Dangal is based on the real life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, it also stars Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sakshi tanwar in prominent roles.
