Aamir Khan to play Mahavir Phogat in Dangal

Rumor is doing the round that Aamir Khan is going to play the role of a wrestler in Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal.
If the reports are to be believed then the film will be based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Phogat, who is the father of Indian women wrestlers Geeta and Babita Kumari Phogat. It is also reported that in the film, he will be seen encouraging his daughters to take up the sport.
The actor, who is known as Mr. Perfectionist, is doing hard training for two hours on a daily basis to get the real look for the film. In order to give his body the shape of a wrestler, he has hired a fitness expert from Hollywood.

In the past, a lot of films were made based on sports like Chak De India, Mary Kom and Bhag Milkha Bhag, and many sports based films are in the pipeline for release in years to come. Among them, Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal is expected to make its way to the most awaited films list.
