Perfectionist Amir Khan has achieved a new milestone in his career leaving behind the records of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
Amir Khan’s movie Dangal has officially surpassed the $300 million mark this week to become only the fifth non-English movie in history to do so.
According to a report from Forbes, global ticket sales for the sports biopic now stand at $301 million, with $179.8 million coming from China and $84.4 million from India.
In the history, only four other non-English movies have earned more than $300 million worldwide: China’s ‘The Mermaid’ ($533 million) and ‘Monster Hunt’ ($386 million), France’s ‘The Intouchables’ ($427 million) and Japan’s ‘Your Name’ ($354 million).
The dramatic retelling of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat’s life is the first and only Indian film with an overseas gross exceeding $100 million.
