Don’t com­pare Dan­gal and Baahubali 2, urges Aamir

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Aamir Khan (right) feels that the box of­fice col­lec­tion of his movie Dan­gal (2016) shouldn’t be com­pared to the re­cently re­leased Baahubali 2, as both are good films that are mak­ing the coun­try proud.

Baahubali 2: The Con­clu­sion broke all pre­vi­ous box of­fice records in In­dia and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets and has re­port­edly raked in nearly ` 1,565 crore in world­wide col­lec­tion. Aamir’s sports drama too is not be­hind, thanks to its ex­cel­lent run in China, which has taken the world­wide col­lec­tion to re­port­edly `1,500 crore.

When asked whether Dan­gal would be able to beat Baahubali 2 col­lec­tion, Aamir said, “I’m happy the film is be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated so much in China and across the world. But I don’t think there should be any com­par­isons. I haven’t seen Baahubali 2 yet but it’s a suc­cess­ful film and I’ve heard many good things about it.”

Dan­gal is based on the life of ace-wrestler Ma­havir Singh Phogat and the jour­ney of his daugh­ters Geeta and Babita Phogat, while Baahubali 2 is an epic-fan­tasy di­rected by S S Ra­jamouli. Con­grat­u­lat­ing him, Aamir said, “As an In­dian fan, I ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that Baahubali 2 is do­ing so well.”
