A grand premiere of the Chinese dubbed version of Aamir Khan-starrer Hindi entertainer PK, releasing on May 22, is scheduled for Wednesday.
The event will be attended by the superstar himself, along with
several of his fans in the region. The premiere will be held at the
Shanghai Art Center.
For the Chinese dubbed version of PK, the China Film
Group has appointed Baoqiang Wang, a popular actor from the region,
to dub for Aamir's character -- an alien who lands on earth and
questions the prevalence of people's blind faith in godmen.
In a bid to promote the film across the media and fans in China,
a cross cultural publicity plan has been crafted where lead actor
Aamir, director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and
the presenters UTV Motion Pictures, along with international
sensation Jackie Chan as well as Wang will be spreading the buzz
around the film, said a statement.
PK, which released worldwide on December 19 last year will experience one of the widest releases for an Indian film in China. It will hit over 3,500 screens.
