Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's Dangal has zoomed past the Rs 100 crore-mark within four days of its release in China, breaking a record previously set by the actor-producer's PK. He is touched with the love shown towards the film.

Dangal, a story of a wrestler who trains his daughters to become world champions in wrestling, released in China as Shuai Jiao Baba on May 5 which means Let's Wrestle, Dad. The movie released in around 7,000 screens and minted over Rs 120 crore by Tuesday evening, said a spokesperson of Aamir Khan Productions.

Reacting to the overwhelming response to the movie, Aamir: "Me and the entire team of Dangal are very touched with the love and affection that our film 'Dangal' is getting in China. I have been visiting Chinese social media websites and reading translations of the reactions. It is truly moving to see such a strong emotional bond that the Chinese have with our film.

"On behalf of our entire team, I would like to thank our Chinese audience and want them to know that we are all so happy. And I would like to thank our distributors in China for giving our film such a nice release."

In the past, Aamir's 3 Idiots and PK did well in China. In fact, PK was the first Bollywood film to mint over Rs 100 crore in China -- and it had done so in 16 days back in 2015.

A biopic of former Indian wrestler Mahavir Phogat, Dangal had also resonated well with the Indian audience, generating over Rs 385 crore ticket sales upon its release in India.

Just a month before the movie's release, Aamir and Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari were in China to promote Dangal, which officially opened this year's edition of the Beijing International Film Festival.
