Aamir Khan made his debut at the Chinese box office with his film ‘PK’ last year, the film earned almost 100 crores. But this time there is a slight difference, ‘PK’ was screened over 4,000 screens across the world, ‘Dangal’ will be screened over 9,000 screens.
This year, the Beijing Film Festival opened with Dangal’s release. The film is inspired by a story of two sisters, and the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat (their dad), who trained their daughters to be wrestling champions. Aamir Khan features as the protagonist while actresses Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra play Phogat sisters with TV star Sakshi Tanwar cast as their mother.
It is a double celebration for India, where on one hand ‘Dangal’ is ruling in China, ‘Baahubali 2’ is soaring high at the US box office, and has collected over Rs 1000 crore worldwide till now.
