The turbulence created by the success of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion masked the silent triumph of Dangal in China. From the day one of its release alongside the massive Hollywood project – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Dangal rose to heights every passing day. At the moment, Aamir Khan‘s Dangal outshined S. S. Rajamouli‘s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which is still having its dream run worldwide.
DANGAL BEATS BAAHUBALI 2
Prior to the release in China, Dangal garnered ₹ 745 Crore which includes native and worldwide collection. And Baahubali 2: The Conclusion that released on April 28, 2017, collected ₹ 1633 Crore till Sunday (May 28, 2017).

As can be seen, Dangal surpassed Baahubali 2: The Conclusion without a sound.
However, since Dangal released in China, the movie had a good run every day. As per the collection data, Dangal collected ₹ 942 Crore in China which is more than its collections from the rest of the world (₹ 745 Crore).
THE ₹ 1700 CRORE CLUB
The fantasy drama movie – Baahubali 2: The Conclusion set the pace for Indian movies and touched the milestone mark of ₹ 1000 Crore for the first time. Never losing its pace, it further spread its wings and minted ₹ 1500 Crore in the next few days. Dangal, which never stood far behind followed Baahubali in its every landmark. Eventually, Dangal now became the first and only movie to enter the elite ₹ 1700 Crore club for an Indian movie.
According to Ramesh Bala, with a Worldwide collection of ₹ 745 Crore, ₹ 942 Crore in China and ₹ 32 Crore in Taiwan, Dangal amassed a whopping ₹ 1719 Crore in total.

As it stands, Dangal is the highest grossing Indian movie of all time followed by Baahubali 2: The Conclusion at present. However, Baahubali 2 is yet to release in China. With the prequel, Baahubali: The Beginning, that tasted mud in China previously, will the sequel perform the magic that it did in other parts of the world?
