According to the numbers shared by Disney India, which is backing the film, Dangal minted Rs 29.78 crore, including Rs 59 lakh from Tamil and Telugu, in India on Friday.

There were doubts about the film’s box office performance getting affected by the Indian government’s demonetisation move. But it has started off on a strong note at the box office.

The film also made a good opening on BookMyShow as it contributed 33 per cent to the movie’s total Day One India box office collection, read a statement from the online entertainment ticketing platform.

The movie witnessed approximately 40 per cent more advance bookings on the platform for the opening week as compared to other blockbusters this year.

In the last few years, Aamir’s films like PK, Dhoom: 3 and 3 Idiots — which released around Christmas — turned out to be blockbusters. And it looks like Dangal will be joining the list soon. (IANS)
