Aamir Khan has taken the box-office by storm with his latest release ‘Dangal’, which hit theatres on Friday, December 23. With a start of 29.78 crore on its first Friday, Dangal has entered the record books by emerging as the second biggest non-holiday opener ever.
The top 3 highest openers of all time were released on holiday. (Though Sultan had a partial holiday but it was also pre-Eid). But when it comes it non-holiday openers, it is Aamir Khan who is leading the charts. Dhoom 3 remains the highest non-holiday opener till date. ‘Dangal’ is expected to see a jump in its collections as it has come on a non-holiday and has the entire weekend to mint money.
