'Hindi Medium' is reinstating the power of content driven films
Content is King... Much like its performance in India, #HindiMedium witnesses a PHENOMENAL 83.63% GROWTH on Day 2 in China...— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 6, 2018
Wed $ 3.42 mn
Thu $ 6.28 mn
Total: $ 9.70 million [₹ 63.06 cr]
Approx ₹ 40.81 cr on Day 2... That’s a ROCKING START indeed!
The Chinese market is now wide open for Bollywood films
The MASSIVE START of #HindiMedium in China should encourage the makers of content-driven Indian films, which *don’t* ride on star power, to release their films in China... You never know what luck has in store for you!— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 6, 2018
'Hindi Medium' was a game-changer of sorts
The Saket Chaudhary directorial was hugely lapped up by the audience in India as well. It might have taken a slow start at the box-office but ended up being a superhit, courtesy its content. 'Hindi Medium' is India's third release in China in 2018 after 'Secret Superstar' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
