Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar is doing unfathomable business in China, where it has crossed $100 million mark already. This is Aamir’s second film after Dangal to have done this magic number while Dangal went very close to $ 200 million. Film has banked $ 100.86 million (649.40 crores INR). Secret Superstar will end up being one of the most successful film in the history of Indian cinema which is not usual because Aamir played a supporting role in the film and cast is lead by 17 year old Zaira Wasim who has done only 2 films including Dangal.
Aamir is clearly a household name in China since the release of his 2009 blockbuster 3 Idiots, which started the Hindi film market in the neighboring country. Aamir’s PK was a total blockbuster in China while Dangal shattered all the records and went on to do 1300 odd crores without a hault. Only other Indian actor other than Aamir to do more than $ 100 million in China is Deepika Padukone, who’s Hollywood film XXX: Return of the Xandar Cage starring Vin Diesel in the lead role did $ 164 million in the country. Xandar Cage was mostly a Vin Diesel star vehicle but Aamir is headlining his own films.
Secret Superstar’s lifetime collection in India was 68.14 crores despite of getting a Diwali release though it had competition from Golmaal Again which became a monumental blockbuster despite of sad reviews and average word of mouth. China gave the film it’s true due and Zaira Wasim is certainly one of the most known actors in China already as she played the role of younger Geeta Phogat in Dangal as well. China as a film market in second biggest in the world after U.S.A and has more than 4 times the screen count currently present in India which is why liked films end up doing insane box office collections in there.
