Bajrangi Bhaijaan breaks Dangal's record in China
Two years after its Indian release, the film was released in China this week
Salman Khan's film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, was released in China this week, over two years after its Indian release. The film got off to a flying start in China, raking in Rs 18 crore.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is about a man who reunites a Pakistani girl lost in India with his family by crossing the tense border between two hostile countries.
The film is Salman's first ever to release in China where Aamir Khan's entertainers are the biggest Bollywood attractions.
According to Chinese box office, Bajrangi Bhaijaan has beaten the first day collections of Aamir Khan's Dangal in China. However, it fell well short of Aamir's last release in China, Secret Superstar, which minted Rs 40 crore on its opening day in the country.
Overall, Dangal earned over Rs 1,000 crore in China and became the highest-grossing Indian film in the country where craze for Bollywood films is growing. Secret Superstar collected well over Rs 750 crore.
