Mr Hirani told IANS, "I had never imagined that PK would be received so lovingly in China. A rating of 8.8, a 4,600-screen release and business as huge as of North America. It furthers my belief that content is king."
PK is also reported to be the highest grossing Indian film in Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan and also the highest grossing foreign language movie in North America for 2014.
