Dangal has minted maximum collection from China, where it released on May 5. Becoming the most successful Indian film in China, the film has grossed Rs 810 crore in the country.

Dangal, which features China's most popular Indian movie actor Aamir Khan, has become a rage in the Middle Kingdom, with people from all walks of life talking about it. On social media platforms like Wechat and Weibo, there are endless discussions about the film, which is about a determined father who trains his daughters to become world-class wrestlers.
