Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan is climbing the rank at the box office in China with each passing day and has crossed the $10-mn mark there.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which was released worldwide back in 2015, has climbed to Number 4 spot on Monday (March 5) after debuting at the Chinese Box Office at Number 7 on Friday (March 2).
The film had a strong Monday despite being released after more than two years of its actual release.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Bajrangi Bhaijaan earned $1.74-mn on Monday taking the total collections to $10.25-mn (Rs 66.58-crore).
Salman Khan’s 2015 family entertainer is having a massive run in China despite five new releases and the film has scored good numbers at the box office.
This is not the first time when a Hindi film has done such a commendable business in China, as Dangal and Secret Superstar are two of the highest grossing Hindi films there.
But we have to give it to Bajrangi Bhaijaan as the film released after 30 months of its actual release in comparison to Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Secret Superstar, which released after few months of their worldwide release.
With China’s four day collection added to the film’s worldwide collection, Bajrangi Bhaijaan now has earned Rs 711-crore (approx).
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead roles, narrates the story of an Indian man, who sets on a journey to Pakistan to escort a young girl back to her parents.
Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released on March 2, 2018 in China.
