TAIPEI (Taiwan News) - India-Taipei Association, the representative office of India in Taiwan, held a special screening of India’s latest blockbuster film "Dangal" at Taipei’s Lux Cinema, as part of its effort to increase bilateral exchanges between the two nations.

Bollywood star Aamir Khan's latest film, "Dangal," has set a new box-office record in Taiwan.

The film has become the highest-earning Indian film in the nation, with it grossing over NT$100 million (US$3.3 million) within two months of its release in March.  

The movie, based on a true story, depicts a former Indian wrestler, Mahavir Phogat, who trains his daughters to become world champions in wrestling.

Sridharan Madhusudhanan, Director General of India-Taipei Association, said the movie highlights the growing popularity of Bollywood films in Taiwan.

He laughed and said that since he assumed office as the representative to Taiwan, he has not met one person who has not seen the popular Indian movie "3 Idiots."

He went on to encourage Taiwanese people to travel to India and also invest there.

Now is a good time to invest in India, he said. "It is like a banquet that has already started, and everybody should join in," he added.
