“Dangal”, Aamir’s latest offering is roaring at the Box Office and is garnering excellent collections. On the 8th day, the movie successfully entered the 200 crores club by collecting 18.59 crores.
Seeing the current pace, it is expected that Dangal will dominate the 300 crores club as well. However ,an interesting thing is that Dangal has beaten Sultan on the 9th day.
Yes, till the 8th day, it was Salman starrer “Sultan” which was leading, but the game turned the other way round on the 9th day. Sultan’s 8 day collections were 220.11 crores, while that of Dangal were 216.13 crores. Have a look at the table…
Sultan had got a long weekend and this is the reason the collections were strong; but on the 9th day, the situation was very different. Dangal led the race and left Sultan behind.
The 9 day total of Sultan was 229.63 crores while that of Dangal was 238.85 crores. Even the 9th day collection of Dangal is greater than that of Sultan. While the former collected 22.72 crores, the Salman Khan film could manage just 9.52 crores, vast difference, isn’t it?
The lifetime collections of Sultan stand at 300.07 crores and it seems Dangal will easily cross it in the coming week itself, what’s your opinion on this?
