MUMBAI: Thriller drama 'Andhadhun', directed by Sriram Raghavan, earned over Rs 200 crore at the box office in China, the makers announced Monday.

The film, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte, crossed the Rs 200 crore mark within 13 days of its release in the country.

It released on April 3 in China under the title 'Piano Player'.



According to the makers, it is the fifth highest grossing Indian film in China after 'Dangal', 'Secret Superstar', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', and 'Hindi Medium'.

"We had no idea that our little 'experimental film' would travel so much. Experimental doesn't mean no fun. The film, I learn, is screening in both subtitled and dubbed versions in different screens. My whole team is super thrilled," Raghavan said in a statement here.

The critically-acclaimed film, produced by Sanjay Routray's Matchbox Pictures, ran successfully for over 75 days, earning over Rs 100 crore after its release in October 2018 back home in India.

2018 was a great year for entertainment. Hollywood churned out a slew of hits, from the stable of Marvel, DC Comics, to those from Disney. Well, this year too, promises to be an exciting one. The line-up in 2019 includes Quentin Tarantino’s latest, 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood', 'Moonlight' director Barry Jenkins’ second feature, and Taraji P Henson in 'What Men Want'. From 'Avengers: Endgame' to 'Toy Story 4', 'StarWars' to 'The Lion King', Disney has at least five films that could very well shatter records at the global box office in 2019. Here are the biggest and most anticipated movie releases of 2019: (In Pic: On the left is the poster of 'Avengers: Endgame' and on the right is the poster of 'Aladdin'.)
