Dangal has managed not to only break box office records but a lot of barriers as well. Here are five of them that will make Dangal go down in the annals of Bollywood as a cult film.
First female oriented blockbuster: Though this film starred Aamir Khan, it was actually a female oriented film. A first such blockbuster in India.
Strong message against female infanticide: The film actually aims towards a social reform.
A rural setting: The film has a village in the backdrop yet manages to reach the heart of the urban audience.
The body transformations: Another film where the hero goes through extreme body transformations.
Three biopics in one: It is one film but it actually portrays the life story of three prominent characters – Geeta Phogat, Babita Phogat and Mahavir Phogat.
