Aamir Khan is often credited to have unlocked the Chinese box office for Bollywood with successive films like 3 Idiots, Dangal and Secret Superstar. But now it seems like the star has gone beyond the box office in the land of dragons. His recognizable face in China is also bringing him endorsements by Chinese brands. The actor is now reported to have replaced Ranveer Singh as the face of Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Vivo, in India.
“We are thrilled about the possibilities that our partnership with one of the world’s biggest superstars, Aamir Khan, will open up for Vivo in India. This new association will enable us to explore newer avenues to reach our customers as we script our future growth strategy in India,” said Kenny Zeng, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of the Vivo India. Aamir dethroned Ranveer from the Vivo throne after two years.
