China continues to warm up to the talent of Aamir Khan. After Dangal (2016), it looks like Secret Superstar (2017) is on its way to make Rs1000 crore at the Chinese box office, as reported by the entertainment website entgroup.

Secret Superstar made $2.31 million (Rs14.9 crore) on Thursday (8 February) taking its China collection to $101.11 million (approximately Rs650 crore at the current exchange rate). The Indian film continued to top the China box-office chart, marginally beating local film Till The End Of The World, which pocketed $2.15 million (about Rs13.9 crore) on Thursday.

Secret Superstar, however, faces a huge task to beat Dangal, which grossed a whopping $193 million (approximately Rs1,240 crore) in the Chinese market. The film, starring Zaira Wasim, was released in China on Friday 19 January with 55,666 shows, which was moved up to 63,536 shows on Sunday 21 January. The week then saw a slump in the number of shows to 46,544.

The film will face tough competition in the coming week with a host of Chinese films lined up for release. Irrespective of whether it crosses the Rs1,000 crore mark, Aamir Khan and his team will be pleased with the terrific response to Secret Superstar, which was made on a relatively modest budget of Rs50 crore.
