Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte starrer social drama PadMan did not have an impressive start in China. Bollywood movies with some social message have always worked in China, but PadMan failed to grab the attention of Chinese moviegoers.
As per the box office reports, the film earned merely $ 1.52 mn [₹ 10.93 cr] on the first day at the Chinese box office. After Hichki and 102 Not Out, PadMan is the third Bollywood film that received a lukewarm response from the Chinese audience despite having good contents. PadMan had done average business in India too. If the similar story repeats in China, it will be a big disappointment for the makers.
The Chinese box office collection of PadMan is as follows:
Friday (Day 1): $ 1.52 mn
Total: $ 1.52 mn [₹ 10.93 cr]
