After mesmerizing audiences with his performance in record breaking film PK, Aamir Khan is all set to take control over Box Office with his upcoming film Dangal, and we just can’t be more excited for it. From last few months, Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist was busy preparing for his character in Dangal.
We saw Aamir putting on weight and changing his looks to fit in film’s character perfectly. After taking a much needed break, Aamir Khan is all set to get back to working. Yes, Aamir Khan will start shooting for Dangal from next month. The shooting for Dangal starts on September 1, 2015. Reportedly, Aamir Khan took some time off to work on his look and prepare for his role in Dangal. He had to transform his body completely in order to resemble the wrestler and fit into the character. The actor even met with Phogat’s daughters, who recently were in Mumbai.
Reports further reveal that the film will be shot in Punjab and Haryana. The first scheduled shoot of Aamir Khan’s Dangal will take place in a village in Ludhiana district in Punjab, Kila Raipur. Kila Raipur is popular as it hosts the annual Kila Raipur Sports Festival, which is commonly known as Rural Olympics.
Our Mr. Perfectionist is really excited to start with Dangal’s shooting and visit the locations where film’s shooting will take place. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is a biopic on wrestler Mahavir Phogat, the father of Indian women wrestlers Geeta and Babita Kumari Phogat. The film encourages necessity for sports and one’s free will. It aims on educating parents to let their child follow his or her dream. The moment the news about Aamir Khan starring as the lead actor in the film broke out, people went gaga. Aamir Khan is known for his challenging roles and we look forward to see his performance in this one.
