When we updated the list of highest grossers in China last year, Aamir Khan was ruling the second biggest market in the world. Now after the release of Dangal, he again stands apart with no one even close to him.
Dangal has become the highest Indian grossing film in China. The film has collected 213 cr in just 8 days and is on its way to do 500 cr plus in China alone. The worldwide collection could go up to 1200 crore or even higher.
Shahrukh Khan has tried his luck in China with films like My Name Is Khan, Fan and Happy New Year but they all turned out to be disasters. The much hyped Bahubali The Beginning was also released in China however it could not even recover the costs of release. An animated film Delhi Safari did better than all films except Aamir Khan starrers.
Aamir Khan has now top 4 grossers in China to his name. He has built a loyal fan following in the country. In true words, this is the overseas audience as there are not much Indian there. Watch out for the release of his next film Thugs of Hindostan in China.
|Happy New Year||1.68|
|My Name Is Khan||0.50|
