Prime News, National, Entertainment, New Delhi, June 9:- Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today expressed happiness over Aamir Khan starrer ‘Dangal’ earning praise from a top Chinese leader for being a “success story” in that country.
Dangal has scripted history in China by becoming the first top-grossing non-Hollywood film, attracting praise from Liu Yunshan, a high-ranking leader of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).
“Happy to see #Dangal receiving acclaim from a Chinese leader. A great example of cooperation among #BRICS nations!,” Naidu said in a tweet.
Addressing participants of BRICS Media Forum in Beijing on Thursday, Liu had said the movie has become very popular in a short time with record revenues — even higher than the Chinese movies.
“I think this is a very typical example of a success story. We media groups need to give it more coverage. This will serve as a good example,” Liu had said.
Dangal which raked up over Rs 1,100 crores since it was released in China on May 5 has created history by becoming only the 33rd film in China’s history to cross RMB one billion. It continues to play in over 7,000 screens across China.
