The global fan base of Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan cannot be summarised into numbers as the superstar is widely appreciated and followed. Another example that sets this equation right recently surfaced. Aamir fans from China will be flying down to India especially to watch the actor's upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan.
Given the fact that movies in China release much later than the Indian release, Aamir fans in China are all excited to come and watch the film right upon its first release. Fans in China are fond of Aamir Khan movies so much so that this time they have decided to fly down to India and witness it.
Over the years, Aamir Khan’s huge body of work has not only made him the World’s Biggest Superstar but also the most recognized face globally.
In addition to being highly popular in India, he is also highly popular overseas, particularly in China, the second largest movie market. With a population of 1.4 billion and 1.35 billion in China and India respectively, Aamir Khan is undoubtedly the biggest Superstar in the world.
Aamir Khan's past three outings went on to create record-shattering earnings. His films PK (2014), Dangal (2016) and Secret Superstar (2017), topping the list of Top 5 all-time worldwide grossing Indian Films.
While Dangal earned a whopping 1908 crores in China while Secret Superstar raked in 874 crores at the Chinese box office, his first release in the neighbouring country opened to a thunderous response of 831 cr.
Touted to be World's Biggest Superstar, Aamir Khan films resonate with the people around the globe, not limiting the content to a specific age group or region. Thus, giving his films a universal appeal.
