Mumbai/Beijing, May 13 (IBNS); In an unprecedented run, Bollywood movie Dangal has emerged as number one at the Chinese box-office, overtaking its Hollywood counterparts on the way.

The Aamir Khan starrer, which had the whole country going gaga over it, has found new faithfuls in China.

Dangal has so far grossed over 200 crores (31,026,993 USD) in the neighbouring nation, after grossing over 700 crores (108,594,477 USD) at the desi box-office.

"Did you ever imagine an Indian film dislodging Hollywood films and occupying No 1 spot at China BO? Cross ₹ 200 cr in China? #Dangal," business analyst and Bollywood movie critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.

"#Dangal biz in China is an EYE-OPENER... Week 2 starts with a BANG: Fri $ 6.14 mn [₹ 39.42 cr]... Total: $ 33.24 mn [₹ 213.43 cr]. HISTORIC!," an ensuing tweet read.

Dangal, a biopic on the Phogats, India's foremost wrestling family, stars Aamir Khan as Dronacharya Award winning coach Mahavir Singh Phogat.

The movie also introduces two actresses, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, who plays the grapplers Geeta and Babita Phogat respectively.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal released in India on Dec 23, 2016.
