Will Dangal break PK record or cross 400 crore?

Dangal has stormed the box office since it's release. The film which collected 197 crore in the first week, is set to smash all time record for the second weekend and week.

Now the biggest question is that will Dangal break PK record? Looking at the trend, it looks very much possible. In fact, it can even beat that record by a distance. Let's take a look at the possibilities.

Let's assume that Dangal will collect 105 crore in the second week. It will take the total collection to over 300 crore. Aamir Khan's last Christmas release PK collected 41 crore in the third week without an extra holiday. Dangal is carrying better word of mouth and is also tax free in many states. Still, we can assume that it will collect 45 crore and total collection after three weeks will be close to 350 crore and will surpass PK.

  • 1st Week: 197
  • 2nd Week: 105 (expected)
  • 3rd Week: 45 (expected)
  • Total: 347 cr

Now coming to the second part about 400 crore club, it looks tough but still not out of reach. The collections in the third week can be higher in an ideal case. Then in the 4th week the film will face competition from Vin Diesel starrer xXx and Dharma Production's OK Jaanu.

But none will offer any kind of competition. The rom-coms in last year fared very bad at the box office as there was only one hit Ki and Ka. Plus both Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are coming after giving a disaster (Fitoor and Rock on 2). The other film xXx looks like a b-grade Hollywood film and Deepika's presence will not help it much as even her Bollywood films tend to take slow opening like Piku or Finding Fanny.

Thus Dangal will get two more weeks and will need 50 crore in these two weeks to cross 400 crore. It will be very tough as PK only collected 20 crore in the same time span. Though it cannot be ruled out completely as the film has repeat value which will help it to sustain in 4th and 5th week unless the new releases turned out to be extraordinary.

Do tell us if you think that Dangal will beat PK record or cross 400 crore?

  1. Mark my words it will. As i hv notice indians are most of d times sentimental and this film play to that rhythm. The reason why PK fell short was d fact that some section felt belittle but Dangal turn the tide for d sentimental indians.

  2. cant say, but its aamir khan movie also wom is excellent, it can do 400 cr but it should fly high in 3rd and 4th week, if not then its not possible. 370 is damn sure......

  3. It look like to finish at 370-380

    And that was huge and out of reach ....

    Only Aamir and Salman can achieve that...

    Truth is that only

  4. Dongal could not cross 80 crore if it was non holiday release. Dimag ke liye hanikarak film

  5. this srk fans r really mad they did not have any common sense .
    dangal is breaking every record .
    and it will surely cross pk

  6. definitely 370cr...........
    i request u all the Aamir fans watch one more time after 3rd week......so that it will do 400cr

  7. 1st week = 197
    2nd week = 125
    3rd week = 47
    4th week = 18
    5th week = 7

    and rest of 7

    total = 390 to 400

  8. First of all congratulations to Aamir Khan,his fantastic team of Dangal n his fans of Dangal,s record breaking run at the box office ? Truly deserve it...Movies with good content works great in Bollywood...Wished our own bhai (Salman Khan) had got this outstanding script,he would have rocked it as well...Quite confident Dangal will set a new record...May be in the vicinity of 375 crores,which I m guessing...Aamir Khan,s script sense of projects is something that has not only captured the imagination of his fans but also does record breaking bussiness in Bollywood...The upcoming year (2017) will witness Bollywood,s bhaijaan coming with 2 movies in the form of Tubelight n Tiger Zinda hai...Pinning my hopes strongly with Tubelight...Since Tubelight is a content oriented movie,it will give stern competition to Dangal...If not getting closer in getting to Dangal,s final figure in domestic gross bussiness of box office in Bollywood...Aamir Khan n Salman Khan r the 2 most trusted,reliable stars of Bollywood n they deserve every bit of success coming thier way...Wishing all U guys a very very happy, prosperous New year ahead...TC guys ?

  9. support and watch thrice to make DANGAL at a top, thn noone can beat his record....I watched thrice and yet to plan 4th time in 3rd week.....3-idiot aaya PK Dangal machaane.............

  10. i think tubelight cross pk collection... And TZH cross sultan collection.. Becous tubelight directed by kabir khan..

  11. I am a big fan of SRK but his choices are poor compare to the other two khans
    Now look at dangal, and then cast your eyes on FAN compare them and you would come to know that FAN was a nothing film , I don't know why such a an intellectual person would chose such a pathetic story.
    I am proud of all khans

  12. I already have seen three times this movie and surely will see two times more.... Heart touching movie... Aamirians let's come together and make it possible for 400 crores
    ..... Happy New Year everybody.... Dangal dangal...

  13. Dangal picture will cross definitely 400 Crore
    It is as sure as death


  14. At this rate dangal will definately beat pk but it is tough for it to enter in 400 crore.but i doubt because of demonitisation i heard that only 14 percent have watched it so how come such huge collection. Dangal collection till know 270 cr (10 days).
