I want to hardcore English subtitles in it. Is there any easy way out to do so ??

Well your best bet is to simply overlay english subtitles over the chinese subtitles (in otherwords don't remove the chinese subtitles first, hardcode the english subtitles over the chinese subtitles).
If you were to remove the hardcoded subtitles only you would get a watery afterimage that is, in my opinion and most others too, is worse than anything you are trying to remove.
Simply put follow any hardcoding subtitles guide to add your english subtitles over the chinese subtitles.
You will need to read up on masking and mapping if these are irregular. In other words if they aren't in the same spot all the time you'll have to be creative to get the new subtitles to overlay properly.
search for "hardcode subtitles" and you'll get a bunch of results.
Edit or search for "burn in" or burnt subtitles.Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
Yeah, best is to just overlay.
Put a dark background (semitransparent preferably) behind your new subs to obscure the Chinese ones.
I used Subtitle Creator to make SUP format (bitmap) subtitles, and then DVDSubedit to adjust the background.
That's if your player can use SUP subtitles, then you don't have to reencode your original video to "burn in" the new subs.
