Aamir Khan, who is busy shooting for "Dangal" in Ludhiana, recently met his good friend and Chinese superstar Wang Baoqiang on the sets of his film.

Wang, who had dubbed for Aamir in the Chinese version of "PK", had flown down to India to meet Mr Perfectionist.

According to a source, Wang was quite fascinated by the way how Aamir works and wanted to witness it himself. The actor, during his four-day-long stay in Ludhiana, spent a lot of time with the actor and the entire unit of "Dangal". 

He was reportedly quite impressed with the "Dhoom 3" actor's wrestling moves and his dedication in prepping for his character in "Dangal".

"Wang Bao Qiang was keen to witness Aamir's work pattern first hand. He planned an impromptu visit to India on learning about Aamir's long shoot schedule in Ludhiana for Dangal," said a spokesperson of the film.

Both Aamir and Wang have met earlier in China when Aamir's film "PK" was released in the country, where it became the highest grosser of all time.

"Dangal", directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is based on the life of famous wrestler Mahavir Phogat, the father of wrestlers Geeta and Babita Kumari Phogat.

The "PK" star will be essaying the role of Mahavir and will be seen in three different stages of his life. The 50-year-old actor will play a 19-year-old teenager, a 27-year-old, but a major portion of the film will see him as a 55-year-old man.

Recently, it was reported that the "PK" actor suffered an injury due to his intense workout and practice sessions (wrestling) for the film.
