“#Dangal – OVERSEAS – Total till Sun, 8 Jan: $ 26.47 million [₹ 180.58 cr]… Crosses $ 11 million in USA-Canada. AWESOME!”
#Dangal is now the HIGHEST GROSSING Hindi film… Crossed *lifetime biz* of #PK [₹ 340.8 cr] on Day 17… Now speeding towards ₹ 350 cr.
Aamir Khan had earlier said that he is not interested in the box office numbers.”I am not thinking about the numbers I am concerned about the audience’s reaction. I don’t have the interest in numbers. I just want the film to touch the hearts of the audience,” he said in an interview with IANS. But this has not stopped him from breaking new ground with every movie. While his Ghajini was the first film to cross Rs 100 cr, 3 Idiots was the first film that earned Rs 200 cr and PK created Rs 300 crore-club.
