Majid Majidi's Beyond the Clouds will release in China on 24 May, becoming the second Hindi film from Zee Studios to hit Chinese theatres in May. Earlier, the studio had announced that Sridevi's revenge thriller MOM would be opening in China on 10 May. Beyond the Clouds marked Dhadak actor Ishaan Khatter's debut opposite Malayalam actress Malavika Mohanan.

Based on a young sibling duo from Mumbai, Beyond the Clouds traces their struggles in the face of poverty, violence and betrayal. Ishaan plays the younger brother who sells drugs for a living while Mohanan plays his elder sister, who works as a presser in a run-down slum.

Oscar-nominated Iranian auteur Majid Majidi, known for films like Children of Heaven (1997), The Color of Paradise (1999), Baran (2001) and The Song of Sparrows (2008), made his debut in Hindi cinema with Beyond The Clouds.

But despite critical acclaim, the social drama failed to garner big numbers at the box office.
