The producers of Bajrangi Bhaijaan have announced that they will be releasing the multiple record breaking blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan in China on 2nd March 2018 during the Chinese Lantern Festival.
Dubbed in Chinese, the first Salman Khan film to release in China, is expected to get a wide release across 8000 plus screens. The Indian drama directed by Kabir Khan stars leading Indian film actor Salman Khan as Bajrangi, an ardent devotee of Hindu deity Hanuman, and his arduous journey to reunite a six-year-old Pakistani girl - who somehow gets lost in India – with her parents, back to her hometown in Pakistan.
With China overtaking the US with the world’s largest screen count with over 41,000 screens against 40,759 screens in the US and the recent successes of Indian film releases in China, the studio and the makers are confident of Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s box office potential in one of the most promising international markets for Indian films. Speaking on the development, Jyoti Deshpande, Group CEO, Eros International said, “China has emerged as an important market and major box office earner for Indian films in recent years, what with the recent success of Dangal and we are delighted to partner with E Stars to showcase our film to China. Our Indo-China co-productions are still in the making which we are extremely excited about, meanwhile what better film than Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring one of India’s most loved superstars that weaves the universal story of cross border friendship to release in a growing market like China. There are no international films releasing during that period in China so we hope to have a fantastic run at the box office in the world’s biggest film market”.
Considering how Aamir Khan’s Dangal was appreciated by audiences in China, we can only imagine how much they’ll love Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
