India and China share their love for cinema. Jackie Chan is a star of action thrillers based on martial arts that have been widely appreciated by the Indian audience. He also received a warm response from his Indian fans when he visited the nation, popular for its maddening craze for films. Chan's films such as Karate Kid, Shanghai Noon, Rumble in The Bronx have been a huge hit in the Indian theatres. During his last visit to India, Jackie Chan had expressed his desire to work in Indian films and collaborate with actors from the country.

It seems like his words have come true as Aamir and Jackie Chan are coming together. Aamir Khan, who is in China lately, is enjoying the attention of the local audience who await the release of his latest blockbuster PK.

Rajkumar Hirani, director of PK along with producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra have accompanied Aamir to China, to promote and release the film dubbed in Mandarin. Aamir is a rage in China as his film 3 Idiots, also directed by Hirani, was released to packed houses in 2011. The film which also featured R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani was a box-office success in China. Aamir is hopeful of PK, (in which he played an alien) to make it big in the China market.
