- Xi Jinping is fond of Indian movies: Foreign Secretary Vijay K Gokhale
- "Dangal" last year raked up over Rs 1,000 crore in China
- More Indian films should come to China and vice versa: Mr Gokhale
"The proposals forwarded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi included moving ahead to find ways to collaborate in terms of entertainment including films. It would be a good idea to expand this. More Indian films should come to China and vice versa," Mr Gokhale told reporters.
Irrfan Khan's Hindi Mediumtook off to a great start in China as it collected Rs 22.06 crore on the opening day earlier this month, movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh had reported. Hindi Medium is this year's third Bollywood film to be released in China after Aamir Khan's Secret Superstar and Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Actor Aamir Khan in January had said he wants to make a "film with Chinese and Indian talent". "It will be really wonderful," Mr Khan said, according to video clips posted by microblogging site Weibo, a service similar to Twitter in China.
He has become a household name in China after the success of Dangal last year which raked up over Rs 1,000 crore since it was released in China. It was the 33th film in China's history to cross Rs 1,000 crore, and won rare praise from Chinese leaders including Xi for its theme.
PM Modi is on his way to Delhi after his two-day China visit.
