Four years ago, Aamir Khan, Nitesh Tiwari and the team gifted a blockbuster to Bollywood in the form of Dangal. It was a much-needed boost to box office business after a plight of demonetization after effects. During the period of crisis, theatre owners were in a huge need for something that would change their fortune and yes, the wrestling-drama just did that.
In 2016, there was not so developed scene of UPI and all such stuff, henceforth, people were busy in a queue and withdrawing money for their livelihood. During such a hardship, the cinema business saw a downfall until Nitesh Tiwari directorial change the entire game.
As we all know, not only did Dangal turn out to be a blockbuster but it’s collection went above 380 crores mark. It was nothing sort of a miracle for the makers including Aamir Khan and theatre owners. There’s one interesting anecdote we would like to share with you, where two theatre owners wrote a letter to Aamir for reviving their dead business.
Theatre owners from Raigarh (Chattisgarh) and Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh) congratulated and thanked Aamir Khan through a letter. They stated how the movie earned profits for their cinema halls. The letters which we are talking about, are going viral on the internet on Dangal’s 4th anniversary. Take a look below.
