Salman Khan goes to China with 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'

This marks the "Sultan" star's debut at the Chinese box office with over 8000 screens.

The film will release on March 2, 2018 as Variety previously reported. Last year, Khan again delivered a box office sensation in female wrestling drama Dangal which grossed a hugely impressive $170 million in its four weeks in China, considered an unprecedented overseas number for an Indian film.

The 2015 hit film, co-produced by the actor's banner Salman Khan Ventures, was distributed by Indian film entity Eros International which said that the title will be released in China by E Stars Films. The film opened in India and major worldwide territories in July 2015. Salman stars as Bajrangi, an ardent devotee of Hindu Lord Hanuman, who embarks on taking a mute six-year-old Pakistani girl, separated in India from her parents, back to her hometown in Pakistan. Aside from co-productions, only Fox's "My Name is Khan", and "Secret Superstar" have been able to receive revenue sharing distribution terms.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be Salman Khan's first to hit the silver screen in China.

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has a insane fan following in China and there is not even a single iota of doubt in it.
