SALMAN KHAN ON THE PATH OF AAMIR KHAN, REACHES CHINA
After the success of Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Secret Superstar in China, it’s Salman Khan’s turn now to please the Chinese Audience with his movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan almost after three years of its worldwide release.
Salman Khan ventures in partnership with Eros International and Chinese film company E Stars Films is ready to release the Salman Khan starring, Kabir Khan written-and-directed Bollywood blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The movie after being dubbed in Chinese will release across 8,000 screens in China on March 2, during Chinese Lantern Festival. The movie will release with a title of 小萝莉的猴神大叔, which translates as “Little Lolita Monkey God Uncle” as Bajraangi loosely translates in Chinese as “Monkey God”, and partial reference to characters as ‘Lolita’ and ‘uncle’.
Salman Khan, not being very Famous in the Middle Kingdom might not give more advantage of his name to the movie. If Bajrangi Bhaijaan can earn $25 million or more in China, it will open doors for more Bollywood movies from India to enter the Chinese market.
Jyoti Deshpande, Group of CEO, Eros International said, “China has emerged as an important market and major box office earner for Indian Films in recent years. She added, “Our Indo-China co-productions are still in the making, meanwhile what better film than Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring one of India’s most loved superstars that weaves the universal story of cross-border friendship to release in a market like China.”
Eros is expecting a windfall at the box office of the world’s biggest film market, as there are no international films releasing during that period in China.
