Mumbai, December 23, 2016: Whether Dangal will shatter all box office records is still to be seen, but the Aamir Khan starrer has already received the highest ever advance opening on BookMyShow. The movie has witnessed approximately 40% more advance bookings on BookMyShow for the opening week as compared with other blockbusters that entertained movie buffs in 2016. And to top it all, BookMyShow has already hit its fastest 1 million ticket milestone for an individual movie with Dangal while already clocking sales over INR 20 cr.
BookMyShow is indeed the go-to-destination for all movie ticket bookings. India’s largest online entertainment ticketing platform is also running its popular Blockbuster Week until December 25th as part of which it has lined up a host of offers with its valued partners FreeCharge, Chevrolet and Yatra.com. Anyone who transacts for a minimum of two movie tickets (in one transaction) between 17th and 25th December, can use the offer code GET150 and get Rs.150 off or 50% off on the transaction value, whichever is lower.
Among other benefits:

Ashish Saksena, COO-Cinemas, BookMyShow said, “We were expecting Dangal to do very well at the box office but this kind of traction is unprecedented. Dangal has not only received great reviews but has indeed worn off any after effects of the recent demonetization on the Indian film industry. Users are also benefiting in huge numbers from the ongoing offers of the BookMyShow Blockbuster Week, indeed making us the most loved movie ticketing platform. We also expect to contribute significantly to the overall opening weekend collection of Dangal.”
