After the enormous box office success of Aamir Khan's Secret Superstar and Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Irrfan's Hindi Medium will become the third Indian film to release in China this year.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed in a tweet that the film will release on 4 April in China. It will hope to capitalise on the country's growing market for Bollywood cinema.

Hindi Medium takes a comical look at how the education system, a tool of enlightenment, creates inequality in India. This inequality is created on the basis of English medium schools versus regional language schools and private schools versus government schools.

Irrfan plays a rich businessman whose daughter is denied admission to schools because she and her parents cannot speak English.

It is also a light-hearted romantic film about a young couple in Chandni Chowk in Delhi who aspire to move into society's upper crust.

Hindi Medium, which stars Irrfan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in the lead, is directed by Saket Chaudhary.

Salman Khan's film Bajrangi Bhaijaan got off to a flying start in China by raking in Rs 18 crore. According to Chinese box office, it beat the first day collections of Aamir Khan's Dangal. However, it fell well short of Aamir's last release in China, Secret Superstar, which minted Rs 40 crore on its opening day in the country.

Overall, Dangal earned over Rs 1,000 crore in China and became the highest-grossing Indian movie in the Middle Kingdom where craze for Bollywood films is growing. Secret Superstar collected well over Rs 750 crore.
