Today is Dimple Kapadia's birthday. On this special day, would you believe us if we tell you she is the only Indian actor who has one of the highest-grossing movies worldwide in 2020 to her name? We aren't making this up at all. As per BoxOffice Mojo, her movie Tenet, directed by Christopher Nolan, takes fifth position in the highest-grossing movies of the world in 2020. The film earned $363.7 million globally. In fact, it is placed higher than Robert Downey Jr's Dolittle.
