Aamir Khan's Dangal, which released on Friday, has collected above Rs 100 crores in its weekend, report trade analysts. Dangal's collections rose substantially day-wise and over the weekend, box office receipts totalled up to Rs 106.95 crore in India. The film released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu and the collection is from all three languages. Aamir's tryst with Christmas has been successful yet again after Ghajini (2008), 3 Idiots (2009), Dhoom: 3 (2013) and PK (2014). On Monday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Dangal hits century, crosses Rs 100 crore mark. Sunday's business was humongous. Smashing records and setting new benchmarks."
Taran Adarsh gave a day-wise break up of Dangal's box office figures:
As predicted by trade pundits, records have been broken. Dangal's Sunday collection alone was Rs 42.35 crore, which is reportedly the biggest single day collection of any film. Salman Khan's Sultan held the previous record at Rs 39 crores.
Aamir Khan's Dangal is a biopic of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who hoped to win gold for India. He coached his daughters Geeta and Babita in the sport against all odds and finally Geeta fulfilled Mahavir Phogat's dream in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
