Dangal Becomes The First Indian Movie To Cross $100 Million

Aamir Khan has emerged as the reigning box office king of Bollywood in the overseas market in the last 5 years. His last three movies, Dhoom 3, PK and Dangal have grossed massive 200 crore mark in overseas. His latest release Dangal has created box office history. Dangal becomes the first Indian movie to cross $100 million in overseas markets. This is an unbelievable achievement as no movie before this has even crossed $50 million in the overseas market.

Dangal has emerged as a huge blockbuster in China. Released last week, the movie has set new benchmarks at the Chinese box office. In just 12 days, the movie has collected $70 million (430 crores) in China. With the current pace, it is expected to cross $100 million in the coming days.

Talking about the top overseas grossers, Dangal is way ahead of other movies. The second and third positions in the list are also held by Aamir Khan movies. Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan is at the fourth position followed by Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale.
