Hindi film market has opened in China at a massive scale and this time Irrfan Khan starrer blockbuster ‘Hindi Medium’ will now open in China. 4 April is the final release date confirmed for the China and perhaps the film will make some big buck. Salman Khan starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has made around 300 crores in China already while paving the way for other films. Aamir Khan is the flag bearer of Hindi cinema being accepted in China and in such a huge capacity and every on going Hindi film in China is actually helping the other one.
China has been US’s savior market for a few years and because of them, Americans could produce big films because there is a recovery plan sitting in China called box office. Hindi Medium was a slow burn on the Indian box office because it did not have the hype, it eventually became based on the word of mouth. A strong word of mouth is all it takes for your film to work in China which is the case with ‘Secret Superstar’ as it ended up doing more than 900 crores despite of a cast lead by Zaira Wasim, who was not much of a star.
As China is giving India more business than Indian territories, producers can now risk making hefty budget productions and try to nab the cash from China hence the Indian film industry will grow. If many films get to release in China and be successful than the money here would not hide themselves amongst the pile of money they give to big stars to get the audience in. In Hindi films, it is mostly the star which takes a lot of money and hence the budget increases but film does not get any better though with China, this policy might change.
