Aamir Khan’s latest film as producer and actor, Secret Superstar, has opened to blockbuster numbers in China. The star’s previous two films, Dangal and PK, had also performed exceptionally well in the country.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Secret Superstar’s opening day numbers exceeded those of Dangal. The film, starring Zaira Wasim in the central role, made Rs 43 crore on Friday. “Aamir Khan scores yet again in China... #SecretSuperstar debuts at No 1 spot at China BO... Collects a WHOPPING $ 6.79 million (₹ 43.35 cr) on Fri... Opening day numbers are HIGHER than #Dangal there... SENSATIONAL!” Adarsh wrote on Twitter.

“The tremendous goodwill that #Dangal - and prior to that #PK - created in China has benefited #SecretSuperstar... Although Aamir has an extended special appearance in #SecretSuperstar, Aamir’s star pull is at the peak in China... Expect magical numbers yet again!” he continued.

Dangal did a lifetime business of Rs 1459 crore in China, taking its worldwide total to over Rs 2000 crore. The unprecedented haul also ensured Dangal a place in the top 5 highest grossing non-English language films of all time list.

Secret Superstar opened to positive reviews back in October. The film features Aamir in an extended cameo, and has already made Rs 193 crore worldwide. It recently received nine nominations at the Filmfare Awards.
