Dangal was a 2016 release and it is still making news like nobody’s business. There is something about this film which keeps it from going off headlines. Only recently we told you how Dangal has become the No. 1 film in China and now we hear, Aamir Khan has taken the top spot on the list of top foreign actors of 2017 on IMDb China. It is really interesting and amusing to see the way the country has embraced this film by Aamir. All through 2017, China has only spoken and watched Dangal. In fact, they were so moved by the film that a few of the youngsters danced on Dhakad from the film to pay tribute to it. Such is the might of the film…

It definitely was unbelievable to see Dangal rise and rise into a giant of a film in China. Such was its craze that the film managed to beat many Hollywood films in its wake.

What is funnier here is Aamir Khan and the producers only got 25 percent of the profit. Yes, China has rule of sharing only that much with the makers of a foreign film to screen them at the theatres. Speaking to DNA, Trade analyst Akshaye Rathi had said, “Only 45 foreign films are allowed to release in China. Of these, four are Indian films. I think it’s unfair because the producer plays the gamble on films, and gets a minority share. But, with someone like Aamir, you know if you invest in his film, you’ll get an assured net per cent return. So, co-productions deal with him like financing ones. It’s a 100 per cent profit and best case scenario for any producer and studio.”
