Aamir Khan's much-awaited Hindi movie Dangal has opened at the United States box office to a good result, but the film has failed to conquer the set records of Baahubali: PK and The Beginning.
Aamir Khan is among the most popular Bollywood actors in the US, and each of the big records are held by his recent releases in the United States. Vendors of his latest outing Dangal made a grand arrangement for its release in the nation in a bid to cash with this Christmas festival. They reserved a record number of theatres for the screening in the united states.
PK, which was released in around 280 screens in the USA, was the largest release of Aamir Khan. Dangal has defeated this record with its display count crossing 330. It has also become the all-time biggest Bollywood release in the nation, beating the record of Ranveer Singh's Bajirao Mastani, which was holding the name for its display count surpassing 300.
The Nitesh Tiwari-directed biographical sports drama, which had a decent advance booking, filed very great response everywhere and premiered on Wednesday in the US. A superb set has been formed by Dangal at the USA box office about the first day. The makers are yet to reveal the amounts of its opening day business.
If we want to go by the early-hour updates, $350,000 has collected at the US box office on the first day and the final figures are likely to cross $600,000 mark. The film will beat the record of Salman Khan's Sultan, which collected over $500,000 from the premier shows at the US box office.
Aamir Khan's last outing PK was the biggest opener Indian picture at the USA box office using its set of $1 million. Afterwards SS Rajamouli's Bahubali: the Start shattered this record 550 from the premiere shows in the US. Dangal was likely to smash both the records and become the largest Indian opener in the country. But the picture has seemingly fallen back with a huge margin.
