Indian Films Continue to Dominate Chinese Box Office, From Works of Raj Kapoor to Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan’s recent meeting with Turkish First Lady Emine Erdogan created considerable political stir in India. Many factions branded it as an anti-national move.
The RSS mouthpiece Panchjanya recently released a detailed article on how Khan’s public stance essentially eroded months of efforts by other Bollywood A-listers like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, John Abraham, and Kangana Ranaut to advocate films on nationalism and promote love for India.
The article further accuses the likes of Aamir of forging bonds with “enemy countries”. Even the title of the piece (Dragon ka pyara Khan, roughly translating to The Dragon’s beloved Khan) hints at the actor’s widespread appeal in China.
Be that as it may, the Indian film industry’s pull over the Chinese box office has always been prevalent.
