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.

  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
  • You fall in love and vow to spend the rest of your life with each other. Such is the beauty of a marriage. The end, however, is not always as beautiful. Blame it on fame, gorgeous looks or the fact that cupid's arrows strike again and again in the glamour world, but Bollywood couples have to face the ugly truth of infidelity, divorces, and break-ups ever so often.
  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
