Eros International Media has said Salman Khan Film's Bajrangi Bhaijaan has collected Rs 169.2 crore or close to USD 26 million within 10 days of its release in China.

"More than two years since it opened in the country, Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released in China on March 2 this year and has earned Rs 169.17 crores (USD 25.95 million)," the company said in a statement today.
