Aamir Khan’s much awaited film Dangal is finally here and it has done immensely well at the box office. The sports drama based which is quite similar to the storyline of  Salman Khan’s Sultan has not only surprised Bollywood but has also proved to be one of the best films Aamir has done so far. However, who gets to lead the box office is still a mystery we need to solve. Here’s a quick collection of both the films.

On the first day of Dangal, the multiplexes saw around 80% occupancy and collected a total of 29.78 crores whereas Salman Khan’s Sultan on the same day collected 36.54 crores. Clearly Salman’s film is leading at the box office. Probably the reason behind this is Salman Khan’s popularity and his amazing ability to connect with people both mentally and emotionally. Plus having a hot actress like Anushka Sharma added more glamour to the screen which Dangal definitely lacked. How the film is going to run in the future can be told by the end of this weekend.
