Mumbai: Aamir Khan’s latest film is going to be a blockbuster. There is no doubt about it and the signs are already visible from its day 1 collections at the box office.
Friday was a working day when the movie was released in the Indian market. Nonetheless it didn’t affect its box office collections even slightly.
Dangal box office collection on day 1 was as high as Rs 29.78 crores. This not just enforces Aamir Khan’s star power, but also the trust and faith that his fans have in him.
Nonetheless, the assumption that Aamir Khan’s Dangal will beat Salman Khan’s Sultan’s opening day figures of Rs 36.54 crores came a cropper. Aamir Khan or other Bollywood stalwarts will have to wait for another well meaning film to beat his record.
Right now Salman Khan’s Sultan has been the highest grosser of the year with more than Rs 300 crores box office collection. There is no denying that Aamir Khan is known to spring out some magical figures when it comes to his movies, no matter how bland some of them are.
Reports suggest that Aamir Khan’s latest movie has collected as many as Rs 29.78 crores at the box office on its opening day at the box office. Aamir Khan vs Salman Khan’s this round has gone to the bhai of the Bollywood. Nonetheless Salman Khan’s movie had an important advantage over Aamir Khan’s dangal as Sultan was released on a public holiday, i.e. Eid. Both the movies fall under the same genre of wrestling dramas, and both Aamir Khan and Salman Khan were in the top of their game when it comes to box office so this contest was keenly watched.
Dangal box office collection on Saturday and Sunday is going to be substantial than its opening day figures and don’t be amazed if Dangal’s first weekend collection crosses Rs 100 crore mark.
