Last year’s superhit film, Hindi Medium, which won many awards and accolades in India, is all set to hit the Chinese market. The satirical take on Indian education system was appreciated by the whole nation and now, it will be releasing in China. Saket Chaudhary, who helmed the movie, says we all owe Aamir Khan. The director feels if Indian movies have reached to Chinese masses then it’s all because of Aamir Khan.
"I think all of us owe Aamir Khan for showing an initiative and vision in taking Hindi cinema to a new and large audience. Without Dangal, the Chinese audience may have not been familiar with the new Hindi cinema emerging here that blends entertainment with strong social themes," Chaudhary told IANS in an email interview.
"Secret Superstar has established that even smaller Hindi films have an opportunity there. We would like Hindi Medium to do well and continue the trend. We are a continuation, not a competition," he added.
What surprised the film's team was the similarities between Indian and Chinese parents. "Both have an obsession with education as a means of social mobility and also their desire to learn English in order to be a part of the global economy. So we are excited to see how the Chinese audience connects," said the director.
