Indian musical drama film, Secret Superstar, which released in Indian markets during the festivities of Diwali 2017, is putting up a great show in the Chinese market. The film, which opened in Chinese theatres on 19th January, has raked in over INR 236.81 crores within 5 days of its release, outshining 20th Century Fox’s Ferdinand and Sony Pictures’ Jumanji by huge margins.
Directed by Advait Chandan, Secret Superstar stars Zaira Wasim in the lead role. Superstar Aamir Khan plays an extended cameo in the movie. It is the raging popularity of the star which has helped the film open so phenomenally well in the Chinese market. His previous films such as 3 Idiots, PK and Dangal also did massive business in the neighbouring country.
Trade analysts have predicted that the movie, which grossed around INR 89 crores in India, will march past INR 500 crores mark in the Chinese market very soon. Keeping the current pace of the film in mind, the feat does not seem impossible at all.
Secret Superstar revolves around a young Muslim girl Insia who aspires to be a singer. However, she faces a strong opposition from her strict, orthodox father. How she becomes famous fighting against all the odds forms the crux of the story.
