'Dangal' starring Aamir Khan has become the highest grossing Indian movie in China, making more than 100 million yuan  in four days since released.

Aamir Khan plays a father who taught wrestling to his two daughters. One of them became India's first female wrestler to win gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and the other won the silver.

The Bollywood superstar said the movie challenges gender discrimination in the country.

"It's a true story of a man living in the north India, in a very small village, very conservative society, and how he does not discriminate between a girl child and a boy child."

Khan is best known in China for his appearance in the 2009 comedy film "Three Idiots." He is the symbol of Indian films for Chinese people.

Thousands of weibo users are discussing 'Dangal,' especially the acting of Khan, making him once again a viral topic online.

The film is rated 9.2 out of 10 by movie watchers on douban, a well-established film review website in China.
