Aamir Khan‘s ‘Dangal’ has opened at the box office with fantastic response from the audience and critics. Based on wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat, the film is as motivating as it could get.
However, let us remind you about ‘Sultan’, the blockbuster starring Salman Khan which was a film on wrestling as well. Since the time people started talking about ‘Dangal’, we knew comparisons would soon crop up.
Here are the 5 days box-office comparision of Sultan & Dangal :
Wed 36.54 cr, Thu 37.32 cr, Fri 31.66 cr, Sat 37.10 cr , Sun 39.28 cr Total: ₹ 181.9 cr
Fri 29.78 cr, Sat 34.82 cr, Sun 42.35 cr, Mon 25.48 cr, Tue 23.07 cr. Total: ₹ 155.53 cr
However, Aamir Khan shouldn’t lose heart. ‘Dangal’ is the second highest grosser in terms of first weekend business, and has left films like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, ‘Dhoom 3’ and more.
