Bajrangi is a massive blockbuster and Chinese people could not resist considering the fact that film is available on online streaming platforms for over a year now and still people went to theaters where Salman is not as big of a star and saw the film which purely speaks about the fact that every cent collected in China is based on the merit of the film which is certainly overwhelming out there. Despite the release of Black Panther, the social drama has managed to remain unstoppable at the ticket window.
After, Aamir Khan's "Dangal" and "Secret Superstar", looks like the fans in China have found another favourite in Salman.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan directed by Kabir Khan, featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead roles, was released on March 2 in China. Aamir Khan's "Dangal" and "PK" also fared well at the box office.
Recognizing the significant market opportunity in China, Eros and director Kabir Khan had earlier announced coming together for a travel drama, The Zookeeper (working title) which will be shot in Hindi and Mandarin languages. Written by K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, the film was produced by Salman Khan and Rockline Venkatesh. Bajrangi became highest grossing Indian film of all time domestically which is a record now held by Baahubali: The Conclusion. Besides, Nawazuddin Siddiqui also played a pivotal part in the venture.
Salman Khan plays Bajrangi, an ardent devotee of Hindu deity Hanuman, who embarks on taking a mute six-year-old Pakistani girl (Malhotra), separated in India from her parents, back to her hometown in Pakistan.
