Thriller drama Andhadhun, directed by Sriram Raghavan, earned over Rs. 200 crore at the box office in China, the makers announced today.
The film, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu, and Radhika Apte, crossed the Rs. 200 crore mark within 13 days of its release in the country.
The film was released on April 3 in China under the title Piano Player.
'Andhadhun' is the 5th highest grossing Indian film in China
According to the makers, it is the fifth highest grossing Indian film in China after Dangal, Secret Superstar, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and Hindi Medium.
"We had no idea that our little 'experimental film' would travel so much. Experimental doesn't mean no fun. The film, I learn, is screening in both subtitled and dubbed versions in different screens. My whole team is super thrilled," Raghavan said.
The film earned over Rs. 100 crore in India
The critically-acclaimed film, produced by Sanjay Routray's Matchbox Pictures, ran successfully for over 75 days after its release in October 2018 back home in India.
It earned over Rs. 100 crore at the India box office.
Last week, Andhadhun opened the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) and also received a standing ovation in the presence of Tabu, Raghavan, and Routray.
Overjoyed that film is being celebrated across the world: Raghavan
"This April has been especially exciting for all of us at the Matchbox Pictures. We are overjoyed that Raghavan's vision and our film is being celebrated across the world now," Routary added.
Routary's production house is also working on remake of noted Hungarian film, Chameleon.
Meanwhile, Andhadhun is expected to be screened for the next two weeks at the theaters in China.
