Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ Set for Wide Release In China

Indian record-breaking film “PK” is set for a major release in China later this month. The Disney-backed film grossed $97 million on its release in India and Indian diaspora markets in late 2014.

Wang Baoqiang (“Lost in Thailand,” “Personal Tailor”) voices the lead character, played by Aamir Khan, in what is believed to be the first dubbed version of an Indian movie recently released in China.

The film had a gala premiere in Shanghai yesterday (May 13) and will move to wide release with 3,500 venues next Friday (May 22). Distribution is by China Film Group, the state-owned enterprise that also releases the major Hollywood import titles.

The release underlines a growing thaw in cultural relations between the two Asian neighbors, initiated by China’s President Xi Jinping last year. In time for Chinese New Year in February, Shah Rukh Khan-starring caper movie “Happy New Year” was given a release by M1905, a subsidiary of China Central Television. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently on an official visit to China this week.

The film was produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association UTV Motion Pictures.

Disney India is in Cannes selling titles including “PK” and Remo d’Souza’s upcoming “Any Body Can Dance 2.”
