After Dangal's roaring success at the Chinese box office, Aamir Khan's film is now making its impact felt across Hong Kong. The wrestling drama hit the silver screens of Hong Kong on 24 August and has had a successful run ever since.

Dangal's collection in Hong Kong, as per figures tweeted out by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, now stand at Rs 15.38 crore. Here's a breakdown of its numbers, as provided by Adarsh:

Dangal released in Hong Kong on a Thursday across 47 cinema screens and debuted at number 2 on the country's box-office rankings. It garnered approximately Rs 1.03 crore (including from previews) on its opening day.

After having a successful opening day, the film made an amount totaling Rs 1.66 crore on the second day of its release.

Nitesh Tiwari's directorial venture quickly climbed up to the top spot at the Hong Kong box office by Saturday — continuing a trend that has been observed ever since it released in China and Taiwan this May.  Dangal — briefly eclipsed by Baahubali 2: The Conclusion — is India's highest earning film of all time. It was initially reported that its total collections had crossed Rs 2,000 crore (thanks to an influx of Rs 1,200 crore from its China box office business alone). However, in July, a spokesperson for the film clarified that Dangal's total earnings stood at Rs 1,848 crore.  With the addition of Rs 15 crore from its Hong Kong collection, Dangal's earnings are inching towards the Rs 1,870 crore mark.

Months after its release, the film continues to outshine its competitors not just domestically, but also internationally, becoming a movie that has set and broken countless records across the globe in the world of cinema.
