- The first poster of Dangal was greeted by a sniggering social media
- Aamir Khan tweeted an uplifting comment with the second poster
- One Game of Thrones fan compared the girls to the Red Viper's daughters
The second poster of the film was released on Monday and this time round, the jokes are absent. #Dangal trended on Monday afternoon after Aamir, 51, tweeted an uplifting comment with the image, which features him as wrestler Mahavir Phogat and his four daughters, two of who are champion wrestlers Geeta and Babita.

Twitter was delighted.
Would want to watch #Dangal only because of the Chokris. What a lovely first look!— Sakshi (@verysakshi) July 4, 2016
Aamir Khan is unstoppable. He makes it sure to blow your mind with each of his film. #Dangal— Debitara Dutta (@DebitaraDutta) July 4, 2016

Make that mostly delighted. One Game of Thrones fan compared the Dangal girls to the Red Viper's daughters.
Aamir Khan launched the poster of the film at an event in Mumbai, where he also offered the only unqualified piece of criticism about colleague Salman Khan's rape analogy that we've heard from a top Bollywood star so far. "I wasn't present when he made the comment but going by media reports I think what he said was unfortunate and insensitive," Aamir said. Salman Khan has been summoned by the National Commission of women for saying that filming his own wrestling movie Sultan made him feel "like a raped woman."
Dangal, which co-stars TV actress Sakshi Tanwar, releases this December.
