Though Taran Adarsh says that the film is "unstoppable" in China, a Variety magazine report stated that the upcoming Chinese New Year (when several Chinese films will hit the screens) may dampen Secret Superstar's success rate. "It enters the short window ahead of Chinese New Year... that will likely prevent Secret Superstar getting anywhere near the incredible $193 million performance of Dangal last year," reported Variety. Dangal remains the highest-grossing Indian film in China.
Secret Superstar, which was made on a budget of Rs 15 crore, made Rs 30 crore in India overall. During the film's promotion in China, Aamir Khan said that he was 'overwhelmed' by the outstanding business in the country. "If you tell a story of your own neighbourhood, your street perhaps, perhaps that will interest the world audience more. The more inward you go, the more you interest people from all over the world. That's what I believe in because people like to see different cultures and stories of different characters from different parts of the world," IANS quoted him as saying.
