China's pro boxer Zulpikar Maimaitiali may be visiting India for the first time, but he sure knows a thing or two about the country, thanks to Bollywood. "I am a big Bollywood fan and watch movies of Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan," Zulpikar, in the city for the announcement of his August 5 fight with India's Vijender Singh, told mid-day yesterday.
Zulpikar has watched Aamir's Dangal (below), a film about a father coaching his daughters to wrestling glory. "Dangal is close to my heart because my father was my childhood coach, just like in the film," said the 22-year-old.
