Apart from essaying an important role, Aamir Khan also produced and directed the movie, which revolved around an 8-year-old dyslexic child. “Taare Zameen Par” is one of the most critically acclaimed films of the actor’s storied career.

Not just in India, Aamir Khan is a huge star in China also. The humongous success of his last few films such as PK (2014), Dangal (2016) and Secret Superstar (2017) is a testimony to his enviable stardom in the neighboring country. Within a short span of time, Aamir Khan has built such a huge fanbase in China that it can even give several Chinese stars a run for their money.

After showering loads of love on Khan’s aforementioned movies in the past two-three years, Chinese fans will soon get to see an official remake of one of the superstar’s most successful films in India. Yes! According to reports, Aamir Khan’s 2017 movie Taare Zameen Par is set to be remade in China.

Taare Zameen Par, also starring child artist Darsheel Safari in the lead role, revolves around the struggles of an eight-year-old dyslexic boy, Ishaan Awasthi. Aside from playing an important character, Aamir Khan also directed and produced the film under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions.

In 2010, Taare Zameen Par was one of nine Indian films which were screened in English subtitles in the country to mark the 60th anniversary of Indo-China diplomatic ties. However, the movie never got an official release in the country despite being one of the most popular and pirated films playing in China.

But now when Aamir Khan is a big name in China, the makers cannot release the film there because the country does not allow foreign films that are older than two years to release. And hence, the decision of remaking the film has been taken.

The source further adds that filmmaker Ma Duo has come onboard to helm the Chinese remake of Taare Zameen Par. A Chinese production house is set to bankroll the project. The film is currently at the initial stage of development. Talking about the cast, the makers will begin the casting process when the final draft of the script is ready.
