Although, Aamir is not playing the lead role in the film yet it has managed to amass this number. Secret Superstar stars ‘Dangal’ girl Zaira Wasim in the lead while Meher Vij, Raj Arjun, and Aamir Khan play pivotal parts. The film is written, directed by Advait Chandan, and produced by Aamir Khan, wife Kiran Rao.
Following its release in the Chinese market, the film has become 2017’s second highest-grossing Indian film worldwide. It is the highest-grossing Hindi film overseas, as well as one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all times and the third highest-grossing Hindi film ever overseas.
The superstar’s previous film, Dangal, a sports drama, had set a record upon its release in the country for a non-Hollywood foreign movie as it drew $190 million in ticket sales alone.
