The Ayushmann Khurrana-Tabu-Radhika Apte starrer ‘Andhadhun’ was extremely well received in India, by the viewers and critics alike. It created somewhat of a storm at then Box Office sales which otherwise was going through a period of lull.
It was soon thereafter, that the producers took the decision to release it in the Chinese market keeping with the new Bollywood fascination with the humongous film market that exists in China for Indian films.
It was released with the name – ‘The Piano Player’ in China. The thriller has as of now, crossed Rs. 150-crore mark in the China Box Office.
The film with its quirky storytelling format and edge of the seat thriller plot has got much praise in China. Thus it has raked in this incredible amount within the second week of its release.
The script of Andhadhun was reworked by Director Sriram Raghavan along with Arijit Biswas, Pooja Ladha Surti, Yogesh Chandekar and Hemanth Rao. It is the Bollywood retelling of a French Film ‘ L’Accordeur’ which loosely translates into ‘The Piano Tuner’.
