Bollywood actor Aamir Khan came face to face with giant pandas in Southwest China's Sichuan province.

Khan was invited to Sichuan by General Office of Sichuan Provincial People's Government and Information Office of Chengdu Municipal People's Government.

Khan, who has long been a big fan of giant pandas, first visited the Dujiangyan, the China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Pandas in Chengdu, the provincial capital and also hometown of giant pandas.

The star learned how to feed pandas as well as about local conservation.

One of the most important events on Khan's itinerary in Sichuan was watching a performance of tai chi on Mount Qingcheng, an important center of Taoism.

After the tour, Khan enjoyed Sichuan cuisine, known for the spicy flavor, at a banquet.

During the banquet, Khan was also treated to the performance of tea art and Sichuan embroidery while the Chinese zither played in the background.

He learned embroidery and wrote his name in embroidery.

Sichuan is one of the most important cradles of the Chinese silk culture. Sichuan embroidery was listed as one of China's intangible cultural heritages in 2006.

Having starred in more than 40 films, Khan has received numerous awards and created miracles at box office. Dangal is scheduled to be released in China in early May.

One of Khan's Sichuan trip organizers, a cultural exchange project called "I'm in China", invites foreigners to visit different places in China and experience local culture and customs.
