Aamir Khan’s Dangal is breaking records and is earning huge at the Box Office in China.
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s blockbuster film, Dangal released to 9000 screens in China on Friday. China welcomed Aamir’s latest Bollywood blockbuster Dangal with open arms in a record-breaking number of screens. Since its release there, the film is creating wonders at the Box Office.
Dangal received a good start and had collected around Rs $2.5 million (25 crores approx) in China on its first day of the release, which is insane. Earlier, Aamir Khan’s PK had done a business of $1 million in China on its first day and had done huge business grossing $20 million. Dangal has received wider release than PK there.
After a huge opening, Dangal has continued its strong run at the Box Office in China in its first weekend. The film collected $4.3 million approx. on Saturday and $4.8 million approx. on Sunday. This takes the total three days business of the film to $11 million approx.
The film has done the business three times more than Aamir Khan’s own film; PK. Dangal is expected to easily surpass PK’s record of $20 million at the Box Office in China.
In a 2015 interview to IANS right after “PK” managed over a sixth of its Rs 600 crore ($94 million)-plus earnings from China alone, Aamir had discussed how people there had historically loved Indian films.
“I think the people of China and India seem to have a connect, which is emotional, cultural, and they are quite similar people,” the actor, whose “3 Idiots” and “Dhoom 3” also did well in China, had told IANS.
Dangal has received a wide release in China. Last week, Aamir Khan had visited China and interacted with the fans there for the film’s promotion. The film has broken many records overseas as well as in India and same response is being expected from fans in China.
