Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar made a big splash in China, earning over Rs 100 crore in just two days of release.
The opening day figure is the highest by any Indian movie, including Dangal, starring Aamir Khan who is also the producer of Secret Superstar.
Two of China’s top film and ticketing websites that track the film revenues all over the country said the movie did well.
“Secret Superstar opened in first place on Friday with an estimated 41 million yuan ($6.4 million), easily besting Dangal’s 15 million yuan opening day to score the biggest debut ever for an Indian film in China,” stated the China Box office website.
Another ticketing website Maoyan also said the movie was well received. Trade analysts tweeted day 2 figures, which exceeded the day 1’s total. Secret Superstar made $10.45 million on Saturday, taking its two day total to over $17 million. Dangal made $12 million in its opening weekend in China.
Aamir became a household name in China after the success of Dangal last year which raked up over Rs 1100 crores since it was released in China. Aamir’s 3 Idiots and PK were also successful in China.
