Looks like Hindi Medium is back on track at the China Box Office. After witnessed a small dip on Friday, the satire drama starrer came back with a bang, as it inches closer to the 200 crore mark with each passing day.
On Sunday, the Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar starrer collected $1.20 million at the China Box Office, similar to its Saturday collection of $1.41 million. But the film has, against all odds, managed to pull itself back up, collecting more than double of its Friday collections the very next day. The film has earned a total of $29.42 million (192.58 crores) so far during its run.
The film is a satirical take on the current state of the Indian education system and the prejudice faced by people that are not so fluent in English. It follows the story of 2 parents who wish to get their daughter accepted into a top English medium school and the hardships that they face along the way.
Due to its content and message, the film was even declared tax-free in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi, and received positive reviews from critics and the audience alike.
Producer Bhushan Kumar recently talked about the film’s success in China. “Whether it is the success of Hindi Medium in China or movies like Raid, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety doing such phenomenal business here, it only reinforces our belief that a good story is what connects with the audience. For us, the key decisions have been to pick stories that have a universal appeal. These are the fruits of those decisions and we are overwhelmed,” he said.
