Thugs Of Hindostan was touted to be one of the biggest hits of 2018. But even with the star power of Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, the movie failed to make a mark at the box office. Now, the Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial is all set to hit the screens in China. Aamir has a huge fan following in China. His movies Dangal and Secret Superstar have broken records at the box office in the neighbouring country. While the former collected more than 1000 crore at the box office in China, the latter had collected more than 700 crore.
