Dangal is turning out to be an echelon of fame for Aamir Khan. According to Forbes Magazine’s latest report, the movie has become the first Indian movie in the history to earn Rs 2000 crore (307 million USD) worldwide after it earned Rs 2.5 crore on its 53rd day at the China box office.

Among other milestones, Dangal has become the fifth highest-grossing non-English film in the history, and the highest-grossing sports movie of 2017.

Earlier, the Aamir Khan-starrer became the only non-Hollywood film to be listed among the top 16 highest grossing films of all time at China Box-Office.

The movie has already beaten movies like Captain America: Civil War, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, Titanic 3D and The Jungle Book.

Dangal is now behind world’s biggest blockbuster Avatar and Chris Pratt’s Jurassic World, which are positioned at number 15 and 14, respectively at China box office.

On the professional front, Aamir Khan will be next seen in Secret Superstar alongside Zaira Wasim. The flick is slated to hit theatres on August 4.
