Amir Khan’s Dangal Movie Collection, Ready to Beat Sultan’s record
As soon as the trailer of Aamir Khan’s Dangal was out, people started comparing the film with that of Salman Khan’s Sultan. Both the movies are based on the sport of wrestling.
The trailer of Dangal has a couple of scenes that appear somewhat similar to that of certain scenes in Sultan. The background commentary in the beginning of the trailer, Aamir riding a scooter and the thirst for gold medal are some of the instances that may remind the audience about Salman’s Sultan.
After defeating the cash crunch resulting from the note ban order of PM Narendra Modi on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes; Aamir Khan’s widely praised movie ‘Dangal’ has now broken the record of Salman Khan-starrer ‘Sultan’, this year’s highest grosser by earning Rs 197.53 crore in its opening week.
