Sriram Raghavan's much-acclaimed directorial venture Andhadhun is all set to become the fourth highest grossing Bollywood film in China by beating the lifetime business of Irrfan Khan starrer Hindi Medium. Yes, you heard that right. The black comedy thriller starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte in the lead has already surpassed the Rs 200 crore mark at the China box office and is still going rock steady. Andhadhun, which released as Piano Player in China on April 3, has so far raked in Rs 208.17 crore which is terrific, to say the least.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and revealed the updated figures saying, "#AndhaDhun crosses $ 30 million / ₹ 200 cr in #China... Biz on [second] Sat and Sun is *higher* than [first] Sat and Sun... [Week 2] Fri $ 2.03 mn, Sat $ 4.45 mn, Sun $ 3.78 mn. Total: $ 30.06 mn [₹ 208.17 cr]... Power of solid content."
He also tweeted, "Top 5... Highest grossing *Indian films* in China...
1. #Dangal, 2. #SecretSuperstar, 3. #BajrangiBhaijaan, 4. #HindiMedium
#AndhaDhun is all set to surpass *lifetime biz* of #HindiMedium and emerge the fourth highest grossing film in #China." Andhadhun China Box Office Collection: Ayushmann Khurrana and Tabu's Black Comedy Thriller Surpasses the Rs 150 Crore Mark
Further, a report in Boxofficeindia.com also noted, "Andhadhun hit the $30 million mark in China after its second weekend making it the fifth highest grossing Indian film in China and it will be fourth in a matter of days as it crosses Hindi Medium. This film can put up a very big number in China as its a long runner. Bajrangi Bhaijaan which is at number three will probably be crossed by Andhadhun at the pace it is going at present. It could go over $50 million (INR 350 cr)."
Andhadhun came out in India last October and became one of the biggest hits of 2018. The film earned Rs 74 crore at the Indian box office.
