This film is about a man who reunites a Pakistani girl lost in India with her family by crossing the tension-riddled border between the two countries. When IBTimes India checked Google Trends in China and India - for last 30 days, it showed that the real star was "Secret Superstar", followed by Dangal, and then Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Salman Khan's recent Bollywood movie "Tiger Zinda Hai" collected a record-breaking income of Rs 339 crore in India. In fact, the distributors in China capitalised on Aamir Khan's massive fan following to promote Bajrangi Bhaijaan with his teary-eyed photos from the film's screening held in Mumbai in July 2015. A chunk of the film's attractive opening can be safely attributed to the renewed vigour for Indian movies in the PRC, thanks to Aamir Khan's consecutive blockbuster hits in Dangal and Secret Superstar, which hold the record for the top two highest-earning non-Hollywood films.
