Aamir Khan’s Chinese-dubbed version of PK was premiered in Shanghai Art Center, China earlier this week. Much to the Bollywood star’s surprise, he met another legend, Jackie Chan and the two hit it off remarkably well. They will be co-starring in an upcoming venture.

According to Times of India, the two will soon be seen together in an Indochinese film. When they met at the premiere, both actors were in awe of each other and showered praise at each other’s movies . They also discussed cinema and apparently Jackie was all praises for PK and conveyed his heartfelt wishes to Aamir and the team.

The China Film Group has appointed Baoqiang Wang, a popular actor from China, to dub Aamir’s lines for the dubbed version of PK.

According to Pinkvilla, Aamir and UTV Motion Pictures have joined hands with Jackie to help promote the film. PK, which released worldwide last year will experience one of the widest releases for an Indian film in China. It will hit over 3,500 screens.

The martial artist got a taste of Bollywood when he worked alongside Mallika Sherawat in The Myth, he is now ready to debut in Bollywood alongside Aamir Khan. According to Mid-day, Jackie is a a big fan of Aamir and is excited to have him on board for his new film. “I watch very few Bollywood movies. But I loved 3 Idiots, which was a big success in Hong Kong. I became Aamir Khan’s fan overnight. I am planning to shoot Kungfu Yoga in India this year.”

Kung Fu Yoga is a perfect combination of Chinese martial arts and Indian culture.

India’s national newspaper The Hindu, claims that co-production films will help Indian films gain access to China by circumventing a quota system for imported films. It is also expected to benefit Chinese films. Although no match for the success of Hollywood, Bollywood films have also gained popularity in China in recent years.

    We can’t match hollywood in India. So it will probably never match hollywood in China unless hollywood and bollywood join. Everytime movies like Iron man, spiderman, jurassic park etc releases, we don’t even think of watching a bollywood movie.Recommend

    The Chinese anchor of “Dialogue”(CCTV) too seemed Amir’s fan although that did not deter him asking Amir about the state of India’s sanitary conditions !! Wondering why did he ask this question and what the over-excited Indians make of that.Recommend

    @Ibrar. I liked your comment very much. Your effort to find negative in everything will ensure that Pakistan will have the same future as is its present. Thanks for being the person you are !!! Recommend

    @Rakesh:

    Sorry to hurt your feeling! I thought I was only doing you a favour by reminding you of the world view of your country. Did I say anything incorrect? Why you are hurt friend. I do not have to make an effort to find negative in everything. My observations are directly proportional to things being negative.

    As for Pakistan’s future it is bright despite all our challenges. If you can not see that you are pretending to be blind and we love that.Recommend
