Portraying the real life story of wrestler-coach Mahavir Phogat, the much awaited Aamir Khan starrer Dangal released last week. The film, which also marks the debut of Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, has opened to a great response in Indian as well as overseas market.
In this box office report, we will compare the collections of the recently released film with the lifetime collections of other Bollywood releases overseas in 2016. According to the reports, Dangal has already become the 4th top overseas grosser by the close of its opening weekend. Reported collections for Dangal were pegged at 9 mil.
