Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar becomes the second Indian film, after Dangal, to cross the $100-mn mark at the box office in China.
Secret Superstar, which was released on January 19, grossed more than $100-mn in three weeks. It’s a proud moment for the Hindi film industry for having two films crossing the $100-mn mark in China. Most importantly it’s victory for none other than Aamir, who has scored his second consecutive blockbuster in China after Dangal.
As per Taran Adarsh’s Instagram post, Secret Superstar has crossed the $100-mn but final figures are yet to come.
Nonetheless, Secret Superstar had a phenomenal run in China as it becomes the second Hindi film to do a business of more than Rs 600-crore ($100mn) at the box office.
Be it Aamir’s huge fan base in China or the strong word of mouth of the film, everything has seemed to end in favour of the film.
Apparently, the film also broke numerous records in China by becoming the fastest Hindi film to gross Rs 100-crore, Rs 200-crore and Rs 300-crore there.
Among other achievements, Secret Superstar has also beaten some of Hollywood’s major projects like Maze Runner: The Dead Cure, which grossed $44 mn there.
Secret Superstar‘s impressive feat has given Aamir and his team one more reason to celebrate after more than four months of the film’s release in India.
Directed by debutante Advait Chandan, Secret Superstar narrates the journey of a young girl (Zaira Wasim), who goes by the alias of ‘Secret Superstar’ in order to pursue her dreams, and her talented yet rude mentor (Aamir).
