Apart from Aamir Khan’s PK and 3 Idiots, Dangal has become one of the highest-grossing Non-Hollywood and Non-Chinese films in China. Ever since the movie got released in China, its box office collections have tracked almost obsessively. Thus defeating Baahubali2 with a huge difference.
We are talking about the two because Dangal and Baahubali2 were the only movies that hit the headlines right after they were announced. Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan is undoubtedly our favorite and Prabhas has also managed to take place in our hearts. So it was harder to decide the highest grosser of all time.
When Dangal was released, it was predicted that it could be the highest grosser of all time. But with the craze of Baahubali2 among people, tables turned. The SS Rajamouli broke all records and took its place.
But with Dangal’s release in China, things changed again!
The competition was going neck-to-neck and by May 27th, there was just 1c difference between the two movies. While Aamir Khan’s Dangal were 1622 crores, Prabhaas’ Baahubali2 collections were 1623 crores. It thus became very easy to anticipate that Dangal would easily overtake Baahubali2 with the amount of love and respect it is receiving.
Finally, our anticipations come true and on May 28th, Dangal went ahead of Baahubali2 and that also with a huge difference!
RoW – ₹ 745 Crs
Total – ₹ 1,662 Crs
