The film tells the story of a six-year-old girl Munni who is played by Harshaali Malhotra, and Bajrangi, a devout follower of Lord Hanuman who helps the little girl reunite with her family across the border. In the first week itself, the film raked in a total of Rs 55.22 crore in China.
In China, Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s best day was Thursday when it raked in over Rs 4 million – the highest single day collection for the film, opening across 8,000 screens. Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released in India in 2015 and it had reportedly collected Rs 184 crore within the first week.
Bollywood is slowing solidifying its position in China with hits such as Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Secret Superstar. Though Aamir is already a superstar in China, Salman made his debut in the country with the successful release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
