Ajay Devgn has had only one release so far in 2018, which was 'Raid'. Although the film was a success and did good business, it seems he has no more films this year but there's plenty in store in 2019. However, sometimes one good film is more than enough, for now, it has earned him a fan base in China of all places. The actor recently bagged the Best Actor Award at a film festival in China for his film 'Raid'. Called the Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival, the 27th edition of the fest was held recently. What's really amazing about this award is the fact that it is chosen by the people, which means that Ajay has a lot of admirers in the Asian country. The fest is an annual affair that is held by the China Film Association.

After learning about the incredible feat that 'Raid' has pulled off, producer Bhushan Kumar released a statement saying that they have always backed content-driven cinema from day one. He also added that this award is another in Ajay Devgn's cap. What's even more intriguing is the fact that Indian films are suddenly becoming all the rage in China. After the Raj Kapoor era, it was started in contemporary times by Aamir Khan, whose films '3 Idiots', 'PK'  and 'Dangal', became phenomenal blockbusters. More recently, Rani Mukerji's 'Hichki' also found footfalls and the film earned really well in the overseas market. Now, with Ajay Devgn entering the frame, it seems that Bollywood's reach is increased further by the day.
