Dangal box office report: Aamir Khan-starrer clocks Rs 29.70 crore collections on opening day
Aamir Khan's Dangal has raced ahead at the box office to register the second-highest opening of any film in India in 2016.
The wrestling drama is based on the real life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat and how he trained his daughters Geeta, Babita, Ritu, Priyanka, Sangeeta and Vinesh to become medal-winning champions in the sport.
On its opening day — 23 December 2016 — Dangal registered collections of Rs 29+ crore, said trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter.
He further added that the film had received some Rs 59 lakhs in collections from its Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions as well.
The highest opening day earner remains Salman Khan's Sultan, which is also set in the same milieu as Dangal — wrestling, Haryana.
Dangal opened across 4,000 screens and is expected to benefit from the Christmas weekend in adding to its collections. It is being lauded as among the best films of 2016.
