Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, the most recognised Indian actor in the most populated country in the world, has said he feels closer to the people of China than the West.
The actor also said, there are a lot of similarities between the Chinese and the Indians.
“There is a lot of similarity in our cultures. I’m comfortable with Chinese people. I feel closer to people in China than in the West. A closer connection I feel. I can feel the emotion when I come to China. It is something that I really cherish. I’ve been acting for many years. In the beginning, none of my films was popular in China, especially with youth in China. Then Dhoom 3 and PK have also done so well here. It makes me very happy that my work gets so much love from China”
Aamir, who arrived in China last week, was greeted by thousand of fans both at the airport and at the Beijing International Film Festival where his film Dangal was screened. The film will be released as ‘Shuaijiao Baba’ which means ‘Let’s wrestle, father’.
