MUMBAI—In a recent survey conducted by IMDB China, Aamir Khan has emerged as the ‘No. 1 foreign actor.’

Aamir Khan has a huge fan base across the globe and especially in China. After a record-breaking run in India, Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” topped charts in China too, crossing Rs. 1200 crore there. Owing to the actor’s popularity, Khan's previous films – “3 Idiots,” “PK” and “Dhoom 3” were also very successful at the Chinese box office.

The Chinese market has not opened for any other actor the way it has for Aamir Khan. For them, Indian movies are almost synonymous with Khan, just the way it was for Raj Kapoor in the erstwhile USSR (Russia) and is for Rajinikanth in Japan.
