Aamir Khan's Dangal Enjoys Blockbuster Weekend In China, Beats PK To Become Second Highest Earning Indian Film Globally

Aamir Khan is a beloved cinema icon in China and Dangal’s recent release in the country proved that his box-office pull in our neighbouring country is phenomenal.

Dangal earned Rs 72.68 crore in China over its opening weekend, taking its global lifetime collection to Rs 817 crore. With that Dangal has become the second highest earning Indian film.

The top spot has been claimed by Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and before this Aamir Khan’s 2014 release PK had occupied the second slot.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh confirmed the news on Twitter:


 If we recall, Aamir has broken his own records quite a few times in the past. His 3 Idiots (2009) broke the record set by Ghajini (2008). Later, the same record was broken by Dhoom:3 (2013), which was eventually broken by PK. The record set by PK stood the test of time, until Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017) and surpassed the record.

But with Dangal recently releasing in China, the film finally managed to overtake PK's global box-office figures.

PK stood still at Rs 792 crore and now Dangal has overtaken it, thanks to its success in China.

Surpassing all is Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which currently stands at Rs 1,065 Crore and it is still going strong.
