Records are tumbling left, right and center, and how! The film is progressing right up to the top of the charts when it comes to All Time Highest collections and this was further consolidated after Tuesday collections, what with Rs. 23.07 crore more coming in. With this, the film has now gone past the Rs.150 crore milestone by registering Rs. 155.5 crore already.
What makes these numbers all the more remarkable is the fact that in the process, the film has gone past the lifetime collections of following biggies in just 5 days:
Dangal - Rs. 155.5 cr.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns - Rs. 152 cr.
Bodyguard - Rs. 149 cr.
Dilwale - Rs. 148 cr.
Singham Returns - Rs. 140 cr.
Dabangg - Rs. 140 cr.
By the time morning shows are through, the film would have gone past the lifetime collections of Dabangg 2 [Rs. 156.5 crore] as well and that would make Dangal enter the Top-15 All Time Highest grossers. Expect many more records to be history between today and tomorrow and if the Aamir Khan starrer manages to stay over Rs. 20 crore on both these days (which seems like a possibility now), there would be so much more to be explored in the coming week as well.
The manner in which Dangal has been loved and is enjoying excellent footfalls all over, it is now a given that 300 crore would be surpassed by the Nitesh Tiwari directed affair. That would also make it emerge as the biggest grosser of 2016 as Sultan [Rs. 300.45 crore]. The film is now bracing up for the bigger challenges as it has to be seen if Bajrangi Bhaijaan [Rs. 320.34 crore] and PK [Rs. 340.8 crore] would be next in line as well!
