‘Andhadhun’ is not the first movie to get a China release. Earlier, movies like ‘Dangal’, ‘PK’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Hindi Medium’, ‘Secret Superstar’ and others also released at the Chinese box office.
Earlier, Chinese distributors were not ready to release Indian movies in their country. But after the box office success of Aamir Khan‘s ‘Dangal’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Secret Superstar’, China is welcoming Bollywood movies. Let’s see how ‘Andhadhun’ does at the Chinese box office.
Talking about ‘Andhadhun’, it is a dark humour directed by Sriram Raghavan. Ayushmann had played the role of a blind piano player. It was released on October 5, 2018 and received an overwhelming response from the audiences and critics. It made a lifetime collection of Rs. 71.39 approx. at the box office.
