Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani recently returned from China, where his ­latest release PK is slated for a grand release, and is overwhelmed with the love he received there. Hirani says, “I visited China recently and was humbled by the warmth and ­appreciation coming from everyone there.”
According to a source, “Hirani had visited the country because his film is expected to release in 3,500 screens there. And his earlier release, 3 Idiots, was also released there to great opening and ran for almost a month in theatres there,” adds the source, “He was floored to see that even after five years people still remember 3 Idiots and that has led to a lot of curiosity around PK.”
Reportedly, he met a few distributors and friends, who told him that “Chinese audiences have been keeping a track of PK-related news through social media too”, informs the source.
