Dangal has rocketed to top spot in China with box office sales of 330 million yuan ($48 million) in the week ending May 14.

The film has earned more than 487 million yuan since its release on May 5, becoming the highest-grossing Indian movie in China.

Disney and Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 took second place, raking in 213 million yuan. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was in the third place, earning 36 million yuan.

Dangal, which released in China as Shuai Jiao Baba, isn’t the first Aamir film to do well in the country. His films, 3 Idiots and PK, too, did well at the Chinese box office.
