Bajrangi Bhaijaan China 1st Day Box Office Collection – Good Start. Bajrangi Bhaijaan First Day Collections in China is 2.44 Million USD – Third Highest Opening Day of All Time for Indian Films in China.
The opening day collections of Bajrangi Bhaijaan are actually quite good considering the fact that the film is releasing after 32 months (2.6 years) of its initial release. The show counts are around 40 % less than Dangal and still the film has come close to numbers of Dangal and that is a big feat by any means at the box office.
The film has easily crossed the lifetime collections of 3 Idiots, Delhi Safari, Baahubali and the cumulative collections of Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name Is Khan, Happy New Year and FAN. The film is now looking at 40 Million plus lifetime number considering the estimates made by the leading Chinese trade websites although it is too early to put a number on its lifetime. The better the trend is, the higher the number will go in coming few weeks
Salman Khan has made a strong debut in Chinese market and if this film trends well, his films will be in demand in future. Sultan is also being planned as a 2018 release in China but it’s hype depends on the way Bajrangi Bhaijaan trends at the box office.
The Word of Mouth is excellent for the film. It carries a rating of 9.7 on Maoyan. The way it trends during the first weekend will give us an initial indication about its future course at the box office.
The film opened at 7th Position in the Chinese box office. The film is facing huge competition from the blockbuster holdover releases and couple of new local releases too at the box office. If the film comes close to 9-10 Million number in the first weekend, it will be an excellent trend for the film at the box office.
