#Update (08/09/2017) : After 2 Weeks of run in Hong Kong Dangal has grossed $2mn (₹12.8cr). In Turkey, it has grossed $314k (2cr) in 3 Weeks.  Global Total till 7th September stands at ₹1920.86cr with Far East contributing 1200cr of that.

Dangal winning streak at Box Office doesn’t appear to slow down any time soon. When there isn’t much to cheer homeside, Dangal is one happily ashore. Mid August saw film’s third phase of release, landing in Turkey and Hong Kong. Till yesterday, film worldwide cume stands at ₹1913.66cr or $291.85mn. This includes $216.2mn outside India which is simply 4.5 times bigger than any other Indian film. In coming days it will become first Indian film to gross $300mn globally. It might as well gross 2000cr, if not Phase 4 is still there.

First of all lets talk about Hong Kong. Film debuted at #1 in country grossing Hk$7.78mn or $995k on 48 sites. This might not excite much but Aamir Khan film’s trajectory in Hong Kong will definetly do. Dangal has already crossed Aamir’s last PK and chases 3 Idiots’s $3.02mn. Real motive for mentioning PK is similarity in trend of two. PK grossed Hk$1.1mn in its 1st Week while Dangal did Hk$7.78mn during same. Day wise trend of both is almost congruent, with Dangal 7 times PK. If this continues, Dangal is looking at HK$45mn ($5.75mn) approx closing.

In Turkey, film debuted #5 two weeks back grossing $56k on 160 sites in its 1st weekend. It dropped merely 14% for $47k in 2nd weekend. In two weeks film stands at $200k approx, expected to close at $300k approx. Before that film closed its China business at $178,904,638 during last month, 20th Biggest ever. In Taiwan film managed to gross $5.47mn over its 5 months run and still running.

Currently film needs $8.15mn to cross $300mn benchmark, which will be 1st for an Indian film. For 2000cr it needs 86.34cr more. By end of third phase film will be standing at 1950cr approx until unless surprises in big way. Phase 4 is expected to start in December when it will release in Japan and South Korea.
