Highest 1st Weekend of 2016: Dangal beats Sultan

Highest 1st Weekend of 2016: Dangal tops

Aamir Khan's Dangal has recorded the highest 1st weekend of 2016. It has smashed Salman Khan's Sultan record. This is the first record of Sultan that Dangal has broken.

Sultan was a mid week release but has the advantage of Eid holiday. On the other hand, Dangal was a normal release but Christmas fell on Sunday so there was only one holiday. Dangal also had Tami and Telugu versions.

Meanwhile there is a big gap between both Khans and other actors if we compare the first weekend collection. The closest film is MS Dhoni The Untold Story which got the opening due to Dhoni brand

    He was,is and will be the best...
    Hats off.. Mr.Aamir Khan

    1. Bollywood arena plz must rply

      Dangal ticket price is high, more screen,more occupancy,more big holiday bcoz sunday and crismas both are same day. Then how this miracle possible.
      BA plz answer me.

  2. Are Aamir hater who are gonna compare Dangal with SULTAN's last three days box office too...Dangal has emerged victorious...
    Dangal - 106.95 Cr(1 Holiday)
    Sultan - 106.5 Cr (Last three days- 1 holiday)
    Sultan - 105.34 Cr (First three days- 1 National Holiday+1 Partial Holiday)
    Haters gonna hare but #AAMIR is the megastar of bollywood !!!

    1. @devesh kaika partial holiday ha sultan
      Aisa h toh Xmas ka b hole weak partial holiday rhta h
      School n Clg bnd rhte h
      BT eid m nh rhte h koi schl clg bnd smjha itna dimg rkhna chhiye
      Dangal 10days partial holiday Clg n schl bnd rhti h.
      Accept Office k workers b holiday p jate h
      smjha AGR bolne k bat h toh bht h bolne ko
      BT eid m 1holiday mlta h
      n.Xmas m teko pta h ktne mlta h
      Isly compare nh kr

  3. Dangal has added almost 2.5 cr with south version but sultan has only Hindi version

    In BOI dangal is on 2nd spot after sultan as they only count Hindi version

    But as I said earlier dangal is very good movie it deserves to become good grosser

  4. Are salman fans comment karo yaar
    Maza nahi aaraha....debate or support
    Choice is urs...

  5. @bollyarena..i think it's time u guys get your facts straightened.

    sultan is still the highest in terms of 1st weekend collection with 105cr..
    dangal is close behind with 104.5cr..
    please follow boxofficeindia.com. most unbiased and true reports.

    your article is misleading @bollyarena.
    get ur krishh3, HNY and PRDP data corrected pls.

  6. Bollyarena Team, why you have not mention that 106cr is combine collection of Hindi, Tamil and Telegu version....whereas Sultan 105cr is only from Hindi Version...

    Actual collection only from Hindi version
    Sultan: 105.5cr
    Dangal: 104.2cr

    If Sultan also release in other version then it also collects atleast 2cr in 3 days....So Aamir fans don't jump like monkey and it is fact you cannot deny this...

    1. Hahahaha..bro i can understand ur frustration... But kya fayda...
      But dont forget to enjoy us...

  7. I think now Aamir fans will understand the power of Christmas Holiday, even though it fall on Sunday but still it is big day because of festival....Plus High Ticket Price.......And from now on huge number of Holidays are started (School, Colleges, Offices (in some places) are closed), so family audience will come out in big number.....

  8. See the same thing is happening, as I said before the final collection of Dangal is even higher than what Trade and Bollywood sites are predicting, but at the time of Sultan what ever trade predict the final number (given by YRF) is very less, otherwise Sultan collection will be much higher......Those who have brain can think it's not possible that each and every trade go wrong in predicting Sultan collection.....And if I am not wrong trade always predict the minimum number, and Dangal is perfect example, yesterday trade predict 39-40cr and final number is 42cr huge difference......

  9. Few Dumbo still think that there is Demonetization effect, Idiots if it is there then it is not possible for Dangal to collect 42cr in one day, use your brain, and don't cry like a baby......

  10. Bollyarena chup hai saala bakwaas site hai apna indicine sab baat khol kar rakhti hai har hafte ask indicine karti hai but yeh naya site hai na toh jisko film release hoti hai ussi ki taraf rehti hai chahe srk ho ya salman and now aamir mai kisi ka fan nahi mai box office ka fan hu chahe koi bhi record banaye i am happy but iss biased site ko kya kahu tum kabhi indicine nahi ban sakte iska kabhi koi prediction sahi na hua indicine ka prediction 90% sahi hota hai @bollyarena

  11. its true that ticket price are too high for dangal and all Aamir movies, as he come once in one or two years

    Final will be Dangal vs PK….
    day14-10cr...................310cr…….Sultan out
    day16-13cr...................332.........BB out
    day17-18cr...................350.........DANGAL WILL BEAT PK

    Final prediction
