China is the 2nd largest market in the world but Indian films didn’t really capitalized on it until Aamir Khan started the trend. Since last 5-6 years, it’s only Aamir’s films which have done a strong business in China.
With Dangal‘s phenomenal business of 1200+ crore there, Indian films will definitely start targeting this enormous market. Not to anyone’s surprise, 3 out of top 5 Indian films in China are all Aamir Khan’s films. He is the most popular Indian actor there.
Dangal tops the list of highest grossing Indian films in China. It is also the highest grossing non-Hollywood movie in China. All these things are stating that we should target global box office to expand the reach of our cinema. The 2nd top film is also the Aamir Khan starrer Secret Superstar.
Salman Khan has now also entered the Chinese market with his film Bajrangi Bhaijaan which has collected around 295 crore. This is a great achievement and we hope, more and more Bollywood films get released there. Recently, Hindi Medium also did a good business there.
Rani Mukerji’s Hichki has released in China and has collected 31.08 crore in its opening weekend. It can touch the 60 crore mark in coming days there.
Here is the list of Highest Grossing Indian Movies in China:
- Dangal: 1220 crore
- Secret Superstar: 736 crore
- Bajrangi Bhaijaan: 295 crore
- Hindi Medium: 138.42 crore
- PK: 123 crore
