  • Will 'Baahubali-2' beat 'Dangal' in China?

The proof of this claim lies in the numbers a few of Bollywood releases in China have seen. Now the film has become the highest grossing Indian film in China.

Movie buffs will be eying competition when the Tamil, Telugu film, "Baahubali: The Conclusion" is released in the country. It is the second most viewed film behind only Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at China box office, a rare feat for Indian movies in the country. The list includes four Aamir Khan hits, hinting at the star's popularity in the Chinese mainland.

Helmed by Nitesh Tiwari, the film not only ruled the box office domestically but also made its mark on int eh global market. After the opening weekend in China, the worldwide collections of Dangal stand approximately at ' 815 crore. But this time there is a slight difference, "PK" was screened over 4,000 screens across the world, "Dangal" will be screened over 9,000 screens. By the end of first day, it earned Rs 13 crore and more.

Playing at: Released in 4,500 screens, PK made a mark in the Chinese mainland with its captivating storyline and amusing concept. So far Baahubali 2 has collected Rs 105 crore in North America. Aamir Khan is popular in China especially after the Chinese version of "3 Idiots" became a massive success there. We are definitely talking about Aamir Khan's Dangal which has turned into a box office storm in China. If more films are embraced by Indians within India and overseas, making a film for $100 million and recovery is not a big deal.

Box office collections: In 2014, Happy New Year, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone collected United States dollars 500,000 at the Chinese box office.

Aamir Khan on the other hand is planning to offer Baahubali kind of entertainment and scale with his next film Thugs Of Hindostan.

Box office collections: First part of the Baahubali franchise collected approximately United States dollars 630,000 gross at the Chinese box office during the first weekend.
