Everyone knows how successful the critically-acclaimed Dangal has been since its release. However, being the highest grossing non-Hollywood film in China is a record that is truly unprecedented. It has been reported that in the first three weeks of its release in China, Dangal reached a box office hit of more than Rs. 1,100 crore. Xi Jinping, the President of China, has commented on this matter by saying that he has watched the movie and liked what it had to offer in terms of story and characters. It was stated by Subrahmanyam Jaishankar the Foreign Secretary of India that Xi Jinping also spoke highly of Indian films.
