It is now pretty much a norm that practically every day, a new record would be set by Dangal. This is what has happened post Wednesday too, what with the film collecting Rs. 21.20 crore more. With this, the collections now stand at 176.98 crore and in the process, the Aamir Khan starrer has now gone past the entire Week One collections of several biggies like:
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs. 165.45 crore
Kick – Rs. 164.21 crore
Happy New Year – Rs. 152 crore
Chennai Express – Rs. 149.96 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs. 137.15 crore
The film is now competing with the best of the best and by tonight, it would be the second biggest accumulator ever when it comes to first week collections:
Sultan – Rs. 208.82 crore
Dhoom 3 – Rs. 188 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs. 184.62 crore
PK – Rs. 183 crore
Dangal – Rs. 176.98 crore
The film that would stay at the top is Sultan and the Salman Khan starrer was buoyed big time by the Eid holiday. In case of Dangal there is no holiday and that makes it all the more remarkable that the Week One collections would be around the Rs. 195 crore mark.
Director Nitesh Tiwari has delivered an All Time Blockbuster with Aamir Khan and that’s a good reason to rejoice as one gears up for another eventful weekend ahead.
