Aamir Khan’s Dangal has set a new record worldwide. The film, which released across 9,000 theatres in China earlier this month, is being loved by everyone and has now collected over 649 crore at the Chinese box office.

Dangal is based on the life of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (portrayed by Aamir Khan), who taught wrestling to his daughters- Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari. The film, which released around Christmas last year, won four awards at the 62nd Filmfare Awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Action and Best Actor (Aamir Khan). Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra played the role of Phogat sisters in the movie and Sakshi Tanwar featured as Mahavir Singh Phogat’s wife.

In India, Dangal was declared tax-free in six states- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Delhi and Madhya Pradesh- to promote ‘Beti Bachao,Beti Padhao,’ a campaign aimed to reduce selective abortion of females, to protect and educate girls.
