The perfectionist Aamir Khan has constantly given golden contribution to Indian cinema through his movies. Be it Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par, Rang De Basanti or Dangal, his films are one of the best of Indian films and have also done record breaking business.
Also the most innovative mind of our industry, Aamir Khan has single handedly opened the China market for Bollywood films and also Indian movies. While so many of our movies struggle to mint 100 crore at domestic market, Aamir Khan’s Dangal has collected 1200+ crore from China.
Just a fact that Top 2 Grossing Indian Films in China are Aamir Khan’s films states the intensity of his domination there. And all these things don’t surprise you as Aamir has always been a founder of many elite clubs and records in India like 100 crore, 200 crore, 300 crore, 350 crore clubs and now he has also taken his record breaking stick to China.
The domination began from 3 Idiots, then Dhoom 3 to PK. From 3 Idiots, Chinese audience began getting an idea of Aamir from India and then Dhoom 3 became a strong advocate of Indian movies there; but the best was yet to come.
Aamir Khan’s PK became the 1st Indian film in China to collect 100+ crore. Then came Dangal which clanged everything. Dangal is the Top Grossing Indian Film in China, Highest Grossing non-Hollywood Film and Among Top 25 Highest Grossers in China. Aamir Khan is the most popular Indian actor there. Aamir’s Secret Superstar also did a huge business in China, minting 700+ crore from the Chinese box office. With such humongous collections, Aamir made it clear why China box office is important for Indian films.
