[tps_footer]Actor Vivan Bhatena who ventured into Bollywood through television has been roped in for Aamir Khan’s much anticipated film ‘Dangal’. Vivan will apparently be playing a negative role in the film opposing Aamir Khan. The news was revealed by Vivan himself who confirmed that he will be playing the antagonist in Nitesh Tiwari’s film ‘Dangal’.
After making an impressive mark with Salman Khan supported film ‘Hero’ starring Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, Vivan has landed a project with another big Khan of Bollywood industry. Interestingly the actor played a negative role in ‘Hero’ as well, and will soon be essaying the role of a baddie in ‘Dangal’ too. Looks like Vivan Bhatena is establishing himself as a strong contender for good guys in Bollywood! The actor started off his career through television shows and has had a successful run there as well.
Vivan Bhatena has done many impressive films in the past including roles in films like ‘Chak De! India’, ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, ‘Talaash’, ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’, ‘Ramleela’ and the recently released film ‘Katti Batti’. All the above films have performed amazingly well, and Vivan has played his part well in all of them. After his impressive role in ‘Hero’, we cannot wait to see what this guy has to offer in ‘Dangal’. Reportedly the actor has already started working out to get in shape, since he will also be playing the role of a wrestler in the film.
As we all know ‘Dangal’ is based on the life of Indian wrestler Mahavir Singh Poghat who trained his daughters to become medal winning wrestlers. While we have already seen how much hard work Aamir Khan has put in to bulk up for the film, we hear Vivan Bhatena is also undergoing the same amount of workout. Aamir and Vivan will apparently be training together for a month in the Akhada to get a grip of the essence of Indian wrestling.
