Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero might have disappointed Indians, but internationally it seems to have found its place. Also starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, Zero has been chosen to be screened at the Beijing International Film Festival. The festival will be held from 13-20 April, and Zero will be closing the event. This year, the film festival will also have a section called ‘India Week’.
Zero is one of the top five Indian films that will be screened at the festival, along with Satyajit Ray’s classic Pather Panchali.
Shah Rukh Khan, along with the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director Kabir Khan, will also be participating in the ‘China-India Film Cooperation Dialogue’. The dialogue will be an opportunity to forge ways to strengthen film cooperation between India and China.
In the recent past, China has proved itself to be a surprisingly huge market for Bollywood films. Most recently, the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Andhadhun earned Rs. 106.09 crore since its China release on 3 April. Previously, films like Dangal and Secret Superstar too have performed well at the Chinese box office.
Other films that will be screened at Beijing International Film Festival include Apur Sansar, Aparajito, Lover per Square Foot, and Ittefaq.
