Bollywood star Aamir Khan will attend the China premiere of his blockbuster Hindi entertainer Dangal at the Beijing International Film Festival, which begins on Sunday.

Dangal, which made upwards of Rs.385 crore at the Indian box office, is expected to resonate well in China too.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the movie portrays an inspirational story of former Indian wrestler Mahavir Phogat, who trains his daughters Geeta and Babita to become world-class wrestlers.

The actor will be in China till April 21. After visiting Beijing, he will go to Shanghai and Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province.
