Dangal is titled as ‘Shuai Jiao Baba’ in China, which means ‘Let’s Wrestle, Dad’. Dangal’s China release is a vital step for the film as Aamir Khan is the most successful and popular Indian actor there. His last films PK, Dhoom 3 and 3 Idiots have done a massive business in China and these are also the top 3 grossing Indian films in China.
PK had collected around 120 crore in China and it was 3 years ago so Dangal has a huge opportunity to break that record. Recently, Aamir had done a tour in China and met fans during the promotional event and the fans in China turned up in big numbers which is stating the excitement for the movie.
Dangal is getting around 9000 screens in China, the widest for any Indian movie, in any country.
Here is the Chinese poster of Dangal:
Aamir Khan is one of the smartest and innovative minds in Bollywood so his strategy in China will be effective. Also, Dangal had got unanimous positive reviews in India and the world over so the audience is going to love the film there as well.
Dangal can earn around $ 20-30 million in China. Interestingly, its worldwide collections so far are 740 crore so if it mints $30 million range in China, it can become the 1000 crore Indian film worldwide.
Let’s see if it does that.
