According to the sources, Sriram Raghavan's 'Andhadhun', one of the most talked about thrillers of Bollywood in 2018, is all set to release in China.

The film will release with the title 'Piano Player' in China, which is emerging as a significant market for Indian mainstream films.

I am very excited about our film's prospect at the China box office and celebrating what is a major first for the studio."

Kevin Tang of Tang Media Partners said "Andhadhun" would be the first Indian movie in thriller genre to release in China.

The story of the film revolves around Simi, a desperate small-time actor-turned wife to a yesteryear star. The story takes a turn when she is caught disposing of her husband's body in front of a presumably blind pianist Akash.
