After Dangal, Secret Superstar and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Hindi Medium wows Chinese audience - Deets inside

Mumbai: The Chinese moviegoers are in love with Bollywood films and the Box Office performances of Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Aamir Khan starrer Dangal and Secret Superstar bear testimony to the aforementioned fact.

And now Irrfan Khan starrer Hindi Medium is drawing audiences to the movie halls in China. The film which also stars Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, has minted over  Rs 22 crores on the opening day.

Trade analyst and movie critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter Thursday to share this good news.

He tweeted:

#Dangal... #SecretSuperstar... #BajrangiBhaijaan... Now #HindiMedium starts with a BIG BANG in China... Collects a WHOPPING $ 3.39 million [ 22.06 cr] on Day 1 [Wed]... Slowly and gradually, Indian films are getting a firm foothold in China.

Saket Chaudhary, the director of Hindi Medium during an interview with IANS a few days ago said, "I think all of us owe Aamir Khan for showing an initiative and vision in taking Hindi cinema to a new and large audience. Without 'Dangal', the Chinese audience may have not been familiar with the new Hindi cinema emerging here that blends entertainment with strong social themes."

For the release of Hindi Medium, the Chinese authorities opted for the film's teaser poster instead of the main poster.

Producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series said in a statement: "There's a unique twist in this tale. 'Hindi Medium' is content-driven and even though Irrfan is an internationally recognised talent, the Chinese distribution body opted for our teaser concept which shows the feet of a man, one representing poverty and the other representing material wealth."

Hindi Medium is a comedy-drama set in the backdrop of Delhi. It revolves around a husband and a wife who go out of their way to get their daughter admitted to a big school and give her the best education so that the elite in the city accept her.
