"Aamir Khan is very much loved, adored and respected in China. His 'Dangal' (2016) was a hit and his recent production 'Secret Superstar' (2017), has also been a big hit," Zhanwu told reporters on the sidelines of a programme - 'China-India Joint Artistic Performance' - here yesterday evening.
"It shows the immense popularity of Bollywood films in our country," Zhanwu said.
"One particular dance number from 'Padmaavat' had been staged by staff members from the Chinese Consulate in a recent show. This shows how popular it has become among our people," he said.
Traditional dance forms of Bengal, Odisha and Kerala are also keenly followed in China, he said.
