Beijing, May 6 Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” is on its way to becoming Bollywoods highest-earning film in China, with the movie already grossing over $ 3 million (Rs 21 crore) by the first half of the second day of its release on Saturday.
Aamir is one of the most popular Bollywood actors in China, and his other movies “3 Idiots” and “PK” have done roaring business here before.
It’s a mark which could well be surpassed by “Dangal” — a story of a gritty wrestler in India’s small town who trains his two daughters to become world-class wrestlers.
“Dangal” was released as “Shuai Jiao Baba”, which means “Let’s Wrestle, Dad”.
The producers said it would release in a record-breaking 9,000 screens in China, but as per trade experts, it has released in 7,000 screens out of the country’s nearly 40,000 screens. According to reports, one of the big cinema chains has not shown interest in the movie. Still, it is doing well.
“My boyfriend and I are planning to watch the movie (‘Dangal’). I am hearing great reviews about it,” Gu Xiaoling told IANS.
