Aamir Khan’s latest release "Dangal" is creating ripples at the box office as the film has earned over Rs 64 crore within two days of its release in India.
"Dangal", which is doing well at the ticket window, has earned Rs 34.82 crore on Day 2 at the box office.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shares this news on his Twitter handle and wrote:
“Dangal is Unstoppable.. does extraordinary business on Day 2... Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr. Total: ₹ 64.60 cr. [incl Tamil and Telugu],” he tweeted.
#Dangal is UNSTOPPABLE... Does EXTRAORDINARY biz on Day 2... Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr. Total: ₹ 64.60 cr. [incl Tamil and Telugu].— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 25, 2016
But the opening day numbers of "Dangal" have failed to beat the Day One collection figures of "Sultan" - which stand at Rs 36.54 crore.
“Dangal” amassed Rs 29.78 crore, including Rs 59 lakh from Tamil and Telugu, in India on its release day (Friday).
In Ali Abbas Zaffar's "Sultan", which released on July 6 this year, Salman played a wrestling champion from Haryana whose successful career wreaks havoc in his personal life. The plot revolves around how he reinvents his wrestler streak in mixed martial arts.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and based on an incredible true story, "Dangal" chronicles the inspiring and empowering journey of a father who trains his daughters in wrestling.
In “Dangal”, Aamir plays Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former national champion who, much to the disapproval of his wife and his whole village, trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to wrestle.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh says "Dangal", which is backed by Disney India, will enter the Rs 100 crore club in three days.
He tweeted: "'Dangal' wrestles demonetisation. Sets the box office on fire. Ends the lull phase. Friday - Rs 29.78 crore (including Rs 59 lakh from Tamil and Telugu). 'Dangal' Saturday and Sunday business will be higher. Word of mouth is terrific. Expected to cross Rs 100 crore mark in first three days. India business."
