Aamir Khan's 'PK' to release in ChinaJanuary 24, 2015 19:58
Aamir Khan's blockbuster hit 'PK' is expected release in China which has emerged as a major box office earner in recent years rivalling Hollywood and Bollywood.
An agreement for the release of the Chinese version is due to be signed in Beijing in the next three days making it perhaps the first Indian film to get a release in China this year.
There are expectations that Beijing may permit more Indian films considering the improvement in relations, especially on the cultural front between the two countries. Currently only 34 foreign films are permitted in China every year.
Most of that quota is grabbed by top Hollywood films. An agreement for the release of the 'PK' was expected to be signed in Beijing next week.
Aamir is perhaps the most well known of Indian film stars in China in recent years as his previous film '3 Idiots' was a massive success in China.
The Chinese patrons of the film expect 'PK' to replicate the success of '3 Idiots' which resonated well with the audience there.
