“Secret Superstar opened in first place on Friday with an estimated 41 million yuan (USD 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.”Secret Superstar” was released all over China yesterday.
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” was also a success in China, especially with school and college kids, as it dwelled on the theme of monotonous approach towards education focusing just on academic success.
