Nitesh Tiwari’s directorial biopic Dangal takes a milestone jump on day 13th and has domestically collected Rs. 304.64* crore in total, yesterday. Aamir Khan’s powerful performance as Mahavir Singh Phogat has made Dangal one of the biggest hits in the Indian cinema. The movie has actually created a history as no other film could catch the 300 crore mark with such a speed. So clearly, Dangal has made a new record with this.

Although, Dangal would be Aamir Khan’s second triple century post PK (2014) which grossed a total of Rs. 340.8 crore, but now we are waiting for Aamir to hit the quadruple century and set a new benchmark for everyone in Bollywood. Needless to say, Dangal is the highest grossing movie of the year 2016.

In the Bollywood history, we have witnessed only four movies in the 300 Crore Club viz. PK (340 crores), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (321 crore), Sultan (301.5 crore) and now Dangal (304.64 crore-and still counting). Let’s see, if Dangal can create another milestone of surpassing the 400 Crore Club. What do you think people? Share your views in the comments section below.

  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event. After the Oscars award night, we thought of taking a satirical take on the academy awards by presenting the BAS KAR awards to the worst performances or appearances in Hindi cinema. The winners have been selected keeping in mind the ‘Tumse Naa Ho Payega’ tag line. LOL! Take a look at the winners…
  • Bollywood is known for its thoughtful stories and plots. Over the years, we have seen many women-centric roles, which have impacted our society in a large way.

  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.

Of course, many actors have worked together in n-number of films and after seeing them on and off the screen, we predicted some love affairs which should happen for real.
