Aamir Khan’s movie Secret Superstar has not only released in India but also has taken the Chinese box office by storm. Making it to the top ten movies of 2017 on IMDb as well, this movie does not seem to come to a standstill soon.
We all have been a witness to the mayhem caused by Aamir Khan’s Dangal at the China box office. Secret Superstar clicked with the audience much more than Dangal could, even if both the movies had an emotional value attached to it.
Secret Superstar will very smoothly enter the 500 crore club looking at its collection figures over the weekend. The total figure after the weekend stood at $ 66.19 million (420.57 crores) at the China box office.
Aamir Khan’s Dangal, in 2016, raked in $190 million, the highest earning by any Indian film abroad. But after Secret Superstar this position has been grabbed by this film. Aamir is hugely popular in China where craze for Indian movies is ever growing.
Aamir Khan recently also expressed his wish of working with the talent from China. As one of the most recognised Indian actors in China, Aamir has visited China twice since 2015. He said he felt Chinese and Indian people have many things in common when it refers to characters and social culture.
India and China enjoy a high level of civilisation with a diversity of cultures and a long history. Also, the countries’ people attach great importance to family, he explained.
“There are many Chinese actors who are very talented… I really want to do films with talents from China. Your Chinese talents and us Indians, we should make a film together. I believe it’ll be wonderful,” Aamir told Xinhua news agency.
