The Chinese are extremely choosy with their choices and quite rarely Bollywood films make it to their lists. While Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots found a lot of connect in China and was even prescribed for film work in Chinese universities, this time again Rajkumar Hirani takes PK to another level. The film has made a record breaking business in India and overseas too and currently has a worldwide business of 649 crores gross.
PK is now set to release in China and this is not just a limited release but the film has acquired a huge 3500 screen release. Delighted with this news, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, “I am delighted to know that PK is going to have a major theatrical release in over 3,500 screens in China. I am confident that the film’s blend of entertainment, emotion and underlying social message will resonate with audiences in China and elsewhere in the world. I am also pleased that PK will build on the success of 3 Idiots and expand the China market for Indian films in the future.”
Also director Rajkumar Hirani expressed his happiness saying, “The deal to release PK in China got signed and it’s sheer joy to know that the Chinese distributors are excited about the film and will release PK in over 3500 screens, which is as big a release as in India.”
While, 3 Idiots had made huge records at the Box Office, when it got a China release, it is to be seen whether PK will spread the same magic or even more in China! For now, all eyes on PK’s total International Box Office collections and Worldwide too!
