Only a handful of big studio backed projects from Hollywood have been able to achieve such mainstream release in China. Usually films been released in China after months or a year later after their domestic and international screening, reports The Express Tribune.

Therefore, annually a small number of films are selected among myriad of them released globally, after thorough scrutiny by the Chinese regulatory authorities. Till date only a handful of Hollywood movies belonging to this exclusive club.

Not only is this groundbreaking but also a hope for all other Pakistani movies to make it big internationally by not following Bollywood trends but by setting few for them.
