Aamir Khan is working very hard these days to maintain the needed physique for his upcoming movie Dangal where he plays the role of a wrestler. Recently, pictures of the actor’s look test for Dangal were revealed on Twitter by celebrity photographer Avinash Gowarikar. He tweeted the picture and captioned it, “Shot #Dangal look test with @aamir_khan today. @niteshtiwari22 looks on. Something out of the box from Aamir again!” Dangal is an upcoming movie that will be a biographical sports film based on the life of Mahavir Phogat. Dangal movie is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by Disney Studio India.
The film stars Aamir Khan who will portray the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat. The story of this wrestler is special as he not only pursued his career in wrestling but also made sure that he taught wrestling to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat. Making their father proud, Geeta Phogat later became India’s first female wrestler to win at the 2010 Commonwealth Games where she won the gold medal (52 kg) while her sister Babita Kumari won the silver (55 kg).
It will be a long time after we last saw Aamir on the silver screen with PK. Aamir Khan is all set to face the camera after his last blockbuster release PK with Anushka Sharma. The actor is working hard for Dangal and is being trained fervently for the Mahavir Singh biopic. After a rigorous fitness schedule and a strict diet he is now all set to kick-start the film shoot.
