Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’ Beats ‘Dangal’ On Day 1 In China

Everything that Aamir Khan touches turns to gold, this is true not just in India, but China too. After the phenomenal success of his films like 3 Idiots, PK and Dangal, Aamir’s latest release Secret Superstar has also struck gold in the neighbouring country.

Film trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted about Secret Superstar’s opening day numbers in China, which surprisingly beat even that of Dangal.

“Aamir Khan scores yet again in China... #SecretSuperstar debuts at No 1 spot at China BO... Collects a WHOPPING $ 6.79 million (₹ 43.35 cr) on Fri... Opening day numbers are HIGHER than #Dangal there... SENSATIONAL!”

Adarsh believes the draw for Secret Superstar is due to the immense goodwill that Aamir enjoys in China thanks to his previous films. “The tremendous goodwill that #Dangal - and prior to that #PK - created in China has benefited #SecretSuperstar... Although Aamir has an extended special appearance in #SecretSuperstar, Aamir’s star pull is at the peak in China... Expect magical numbers yet again!,” he says.

Remember, Aamir’s Dangal made almost Rs 1500 crore in China alone. Secret Superstar with a much lesser budget has collected Rs 193 crore worldwide till now, the Chinese box-office may just give it another shot in the arm.
