Will Dangal become the biggest hit of 2016? Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal is one of the finest films that we have seen this year. The film has collected Rs 270.47 crore in just 10 days in the domestic market. Before its release, the film was being compared to Sultan. Both the films have wrestling as the backdrop. However, Dangal is sprinting towards the Rs 300-crore mark. With a collection of Rs 270.47 crore, Dangal can soon surpass Sultan collection of Rs 300.45 crore. In short, Dangal is just short of about Rs 30 crores in smashing Sultan’s box office records in the domestic market.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is inspired from the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his struggle to make his daughters, world-class wrestlers. The film also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Aparshakti Khurana, Sakshi Tanwar and Girish Kulkarni in important roles.
