Aamir Khan is known as a trendsetter in Bollywood. The actor has created many milestones in his career as far the box office is concerned. But it looks like that with Dangal, Aamir Khan has raised the bar too damn high. It will be very tough for any actor to match these historic numbers.
A Bollywood release can definitely challenge its lifetime collection in India. But the overseas and worldwide numbers will be impossible to cross unless it does a miraculous business in China too. Dangal worldwide gross is inching closer to 2000 crore. While the overseas gross is $200 million plus thanks to the historic business in China.
Just like Bahubali 2 is a rare phenomena which comes once in a while, Dangal is also among these ones of its kind films. Indian films made on a big scale will never be as successful as Dangal in China because their audience will opt for Hollywood which has better VFX. Same goes for typical masala films which have party songs and dance. So it has to be something special and emotional like Dangal which can strike a chord with Chinese.
After it will finish its box office run, the difference between Dangal and the highest non-Aamir Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be 1375 crores which is too damn high. Needless to remind that other stars still have to beat PK in India & worldwide and PK and Dhoom 3 in overseas.
