Ayushmann Khurrana starrer ‘Andhadhun’ is now headed to China. One of the most successful films of 2018, it will release in China as ‘Piano Player’ considering the main lead character is that of Ayushmann’s who is a blind pianist who accidentally gets caught in the middle of a murder crime. 

China has proved to be an important market for Indian Hindi films that have found success there. Previously Aamir Khan’s films like ‘Secret Superstar’, ‘Dangal’ have done good business. Even Salman Khan got his films released there, out of which ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ did good numbers.
