The new benchmark set by the PRC box-office has comfortably dethroned the long-held record of North America's $1.395 billion gross of July 2011 when three tentpole Hollywood blockbusters including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Captain America: The First Avenger wreaked havoc at the ticket window in the west.
And now it will be interesting to see if Salman succeeds in derailing Aamir's Dangal at the Box Office in China.
While an increasing number of filmmakers are looking at China as a strong market, the Kabir Khan-directed Bajrangi Bhaijaan opened on March 2 to huge success similar to its peers released earlier. The film has made more than Rs 18 crore ($2.8 million) on its opening day. Though Salman Khan is nowhere near the opening weekend record of Secret Superstar which was close to 175 crores. Bajrangi Bhaijaan also stars Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and child artiste Harshaali Malhotra. So the total so far is $8.45 million. The film garnered a peachy cumulative of 486 million yuan ($77 million) in its 13-day run in January.
The biggest beneficiary of Bollywood's penetration in China was Aamir Khan's last release, Secret Superstar. At FICCI-Frames a panel of speakers talking about the Chinese market for Indian films unanimously said that relatable content was the reason why Indian films have worked in China.
