The film, backed by T-Series and Maddock Films, released in China on April, 4 2018 and made $3.68 million on its opening day. Therefore, emerging as the second biggest Bollywood opener in the country after Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar.

A quirky social comment on the education system, Hindi Medium is directed by Saket Chaudhary.

China has a quota on the number of overseas movies that can be screened in the country each year. However, Indian films are finding increased presence there.

“Slowly and gradually, Indian films are getting a firm foothold in China,” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series also said in a statement, “Hindi Medium is content-driven. There’s a unique twist in this tale.”

    Pakistan should also release all those rona-dhona films that they keep making. Who knows? Maybe the Chinese also like to cry.Recommend
