Aamir’s Dangal will be another blockbuster, like wise Salman in Sultan, Aamir Khan is also playing the role of a wrestler but this is totally different from Sultan.
Its first screening was held on 18th September with few close friends and guest. It was especially arranged on the occasion of Shabana Azmi birthday as they are very close family friends.
Source says “Agreed, it was premature to show the film considering Dangal releases during Christmas. But it was a special occasion on Sunday. It was Shabana Azmi’s birthday. Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao are very close to Shabana and Javed. So, Aamir sportingly arranged a screening attended by Shabana, Javed Akhtar and around 20 other close friends.
It is not a film about wrestling like Sultan. It’s about a wrestler’s efforts to train his daughters in wrestling. It’s a heartwarming effort. At a time when cinema like Pink and Parched simply address the question of women’s empowerment, Aamir’s Dangal will show him to be a true champion of feminism.”
Shabana was very much moved by the film she said “Dangal is brilliant. Another blockbuster from Aamir. It is beautifully scripted with very convincing performances. The girls are wonderful and it’s Aamir’s best performance to date. The gender politics are so relevant for the times and the unexpected climax will make even the most hardened heart cry. It is emotional without being sentimental. It’s a hundred per cent winner.”
In Dangal, Aamir is playing a 55 year old man character who is a wrestler and teacher his daughter wrestling. He has to put on wait for this movie and it is about 95 Kg.
During movie poster launch Aamir said “For ‘Dangal’ I had to play a 55-year-old man which is closer to my real life age. I was worried about that. As I was playing young parts in (other) films and for ‘Dangal’ I will have to play an old man, be fat, grey hair. So, I was worried about my future”
The film is set to release on the eve of Christmas.
This must be a must watch movie for all Aamir fans.
