China is keen to strengthen cultural exchanges and cooperation with India in making and sharing excellent films, said a top official of the ruling Communist Party's information department and the country's film regulator as he met Bollywood actor Aamir Khan here.
Wang Xiaohui, executive vice head of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and director general of the State Film Administration, met Khan on October 19.
Wang introduced the development of Chinese films and said he hopes China and India could strengthen cultural exchanges and cooperation, share excellent films, carry out in-depth cooperation in making films, and encourage filmmakers of the two countries to produce more quality films, the Information Office of China's State Council said in a statement.
Khan, whose films Three Idiots, Dangal and Secret Superstar created box office records in China, said he would like to share his filmmaking experiences with industry colleagues from China, seek for inspiration and create more excellent works.
Khan was in China to attend Taihu World Cultural Forum.
The Bollywood star has become a household name in China after the success of his film Dangal, the 33rd film in Chinese cinema history to cross one Billion RMB, which in Indian currency amounts to about Rs 1000 crore.
Dangal won rare praise from Chinese leaders including President Xi Jinping for its theme.
