Nitesh Tiwari’s wrestling biopic ‘Dangal‘ based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari is continuing its golden run at the box office. The movie minted Rs 20.75 crore on Wednesday and the total collection of the movie stands at Rs 172.74 crore nett. The tax exemption in Haryana has benefitted the makers as East Punjab has showed miraculous numbers. The collections should close near Rs 191 crore nett mark and it will be the second highest first week collection ever.
With no films releasing this Friday, the movie has another good weekend of the New Years and by next week, we can expect the movie to enter the Rs 200 crore club.
‘Dangal’ directed by Nitesh Tiwari stars Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar in important roles.
