The Bollywood superstar said the movie challenges(挑战) gender(性别) discrimination(歧视) in the country.

"It's a true story of a man living in north India, in a very small village, very conservative(保守的) society(社会), and how he does not discriminate between a girl child and a boy child."

Khan is best known in China for his appearance in the 2009 comedy film "Three Idiots." He is the symbol of Indian films for Chinese people.
