Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' is smashing all the Indian BO records and setting new benchmarks in terms of collections. The film has crossed the lifetime business of 'PK' in India and has occupied the first position. According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, 'Dangal' has minted a shattering Rs 31.79 crore in its third weekend and in its three weeks theatrical run, this sports drama has bagged a whopping Rs 345.30 crore in India.

On the other side, the Mahavir Singh Phogat's life story is making magic in overseas markets as well. According to Taran Adarsh tweet, the film has collected Rs 180.58 crore ($ 26.47 million) from the foreign ticket-windows. From the US and Canada ticket-counters alone, 'Dangal' has grabbed more than $ 11 million.

Now the question is, how much 'Dangal' will bag in its full run! If we look at the highest grossing Hindi films at the Indian box office, 'Dangal' is positioned in the first place, while 'PK', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' and 'Sultan' are stationed in the second, third and fourth position respectively.
