Dangal China success may brought Aamir Khan neat Rs 100 crore paycheque. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is on track to earn one of the biggest single-movie paydays ever for a non-Hollywood actor. Since it released in China on 5 May 2017, the Aamir Khan-starrer, directed by Nitish Tiwari, and also featuring Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Zaira Waseem and Sanya Malhotra, has gone from strength to strength, quickly racking up collections that are higher than any other Indian film has seen thus far.
It’s Rs 1,100 crore haul from China (where its run has been extended for another month) adds substantially to its previous approximately Rs 750 crore earnings in India and other territories to bring it very close to a total box office collection of Rs 1,900 crore. Media watchers are now interested in seeing whether or not it touches the Rs 2,000 crore mark a landmark for an Indian film.Unlike other Bollywood superstars SRK, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar who charge a flat fee and a share of the profits from their movies, Aamir insists on being paid from the profits alone. They arrived at this figure by deducting from its box office collections (India+other territories) the costs of making and promoting the film (approximately Rs 75+ crore), distribution costs for Disney (around Rs 35 crore), distributors’ share (around Rs 249.68 crore), and about Rs 67 crore from various rights deals. So after recoveries of around Rs 316+ crore, the profit in January 2017 was estimated to be around Rs 241+ crore.Based on these reports, it would seem that Aamir Khan’s payment from Dangal is around Rs 300 crore more than the total box office collections of all but 20 Indian films ever made.
