Aamir Khan’s Dangal has knocked demonetisation out of the ring in just one week. According to the film’s producers, the wrestling drama has collected a staggering gross sum of Rs 274 Crore (approximately) in its first week at the theatres. The film fraternity has been nervous about business taking a hit ever since PM Modi announced the notes ban. But the Nitesh Tiwari film has proved that content is truly king.

On Thursday, 29 December (day 7), Dangal took home Rs 20.29 Crore amounting to a nett collection of Rs 197.53 Crore.

Trade analyst Taran Darsh confirms Dangal’s record breaking destruction at the box office.

With this kind of success in the first week itself, the Rs 300 Crore mark is hardly distant for the Aamir Khan starrer. 2016 has definitely ended on a high note for team Dangal.
