Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds, which launched Ishan Khattar’s career in Bollywood will now be going to China, the new paradise of Bollywood’s money-earning aspirations.
On release last year, Beyond The Clouds had underperformed at the Indian box-office. But Ishaan feels China would welcome this film about a young man from the Mumbai slums fighting for his and his sister’s survival with dignity. Says Ishaan, “I am very excited and hopeful about it. I am curious to see how the population of China reacts to this survivalist drama. This is a film on the theme of humanism. Hopefully, the universality of the emotions will connect with the audience.”
Ishaan is quick to point out that Indian films are doing exceedingly well in China, with Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal and Sriram Raghavan’s Andha Dhun breaking records rapidly. “Our films are doing incredibly well in China, so there’s a lot to be hopeful about,” Ishaan has his fingers crossed.
