PK will be a hit in China too, feels Hirani

As Aamir Khan’s blockbuster film PK gears up for its release in the multi-billion dollar Chinese market, director Rajkumar Hirani says the movie will be a great success in Communist China as its controversial religious theme can resonate well with the audience here.

Hirani, who was here to ensure that all legal formalities are completed, told Indian media that the officials and members of Chinese film industry approached the producers of PK to get it released here.“They saw the film and they themselves invited us here because of 3 Idiots success. They are giving us a 3,000 screen release which is as big as in India,” he said.

An agreement for the release of the Chinese version was made at a function in which Indian Ambassador to China Ashok K Kantha and top Chinese film officials were present.

The agreement was signed amid expectations that Beijing may permit more Indian films, considering the improved relations, especially on the cultural front, between the two countries.
