Highest Grossing Bollywood Movies in China

China is world’s second largest market after USA for movies. The Chinese movie market is sized at $4.8 billion. But is very tough to enter because the Chinese government has capped the number of foreign releases in the country at 34 per year. Most of these films are Hollywood biggies and only a couple of Bollywood movies are able to find a slot every year.

In recent years, Shahrukh Khan’s My Name Is Khan was the first to release in China. But it was the popularity of 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan that gave Bollywood movies a new lease of life in the neighbouring country.

After Dhoom 3, PK was released in 4,600 screens across China and surpassed all expectations by collecting 123 cr. Thus China became the only overseas country where a Bollywood film has crossed 100 crore. Happy New Year and Fan were big failures while Baahubali was a decent earner. An animated film Delhi Safari was a surprise hit in China despite being a failure in India.

It clearly proves that Aamir Khan is the only crowd puller in China. SRK tried his luck twice and failed. Though Salman Khan is yet to explore this market.

  1. Hahahah…😂😂😂😂haklu khan the so called king of pluto 3 movies and 3.67 cr total collection in china.. hats off srk we r proud of u u arleast released ur film in china these will be the wirds frim his pluto fans.
    Only BHAI rules..ek baar ane do👍👌

  2. Dangal will even surpass PK in China . Already many Chinese fans have written letters to Aamir to release it there.

  3. Chinese market at this time belongs to Aamir Khan maybe because he looks Chinese in P.K haha! Jokes beside P.K would work in any country in the world because it was a masterpiece but R.K.Hirani and Aamir Khan
    Likewise in Germany and European countries Shah Rukh Khan are called SRK territory but they are not big markets so it won’t collect 123cr over there Aamir Khan is lucky to have captured such a big Market like China well done Aamir Khan!
    India should release masterpieces in China like P.K and not release a Khan Movie! Bajrangi Bhaijaan deserves release in China, can’t understand why My Name Is Khan never worked in China that was a Classic! China should allow at least 4-6 Indian movies considering India is such a big market and they should also release their movies in India
