After enjoying a phenomenal extended opening weekend at the Chinese box office, Irrfan Khan starrer Hindi Medium remained rock-steady on its Monday at the ticket windows. The social drama raked in around Rs 9 crore yesterday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 147.50 crore. With this humungous business, Hindi Medium has now crossed the Rs 250 crore mark at the worldwide box office. The film, backed by T-Series and Maddock Films, released in China on Wednesday. It took in $3.68 million on its opening day, emerging as the second biggest Bollywood opener thereafter Aamir’s Secret Superstar.
A quirky social comment on the education system, Hindi Medium is directed by Saket Chaudhary. It also features Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in a lead role. Earlier in a statement, producer of Hindi Medium, Bhushan Kumar said, “There’s a unique twist in this tale. ‘Hindi Medium’ is content-driven and even though Irrfan is an internationally recognised talent, the Chinese distribution body opted for our teaser concept which shows the feet of a man, one representing poverty and the other representing material wealth.”
The film’s story revolves around a couple who want to give their daughter the best education so that she will be accepted by the elite. Apart from the lead cast, the film also stars Deepak Dobriyal and Tilottama Shome in pivotal roles. Lead actor Irrfan Khan was honoured with Filmfare Best Actor Award for his extraordinary portrayal in the film. Anyway do you guys think the film will enter the Rs 200 crore club in China?
