Chinese critics believe that comedy and romance always work well at Chinese box office. No wonder Indian films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Dangal, Baahubali 2 and now Toilet Hero are doing well in China.
Akshay Kumar-starrer only adds to the long list of Bollywood superhits in China. Released in April this year, Irrfan Khan’s satirical comedy Hindi Medium has crossed the Rs200 crore mark in the country, while Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan had notched up Rs300 crore within a month of release. But the China success story has mostly been driven by Aamir Khan—his sports drama Dangal is currently the highest-grossing Indian film in China with collections of Rs1,200 crore while his musical production Secret Superstar has earned about Rs760 crore. Other blockbusters include PK (Rs123 crore), Dhoom 3 (Rs24 crore) and 3 Idiots (Rs16 crore).
