Speechless! Infact, at a loss of words to describe how well this film surpasses the expectations that come with an Aamir Khan film! #Dangal— Tusshar (@TusshKapoor) December 20, 2016
Beautifully emotional, realistic & oh so suspenseful, a feat rarely achieved by a sports film of human spirit! Epic! #Dangal— Tusshar (@TusshKapoor) December 20, 2016
An Aamir Khan film is always an event. Dangal, in which the actor plays Mahavir Phogat as a young man as well as a middle-aged father, will open amid sky-high expectations. Aamir's last film was 2014's PK, currently Bollywood's biggest earner with over Rs 700 crore worldwide. Aamir and Dangal will be expected to deliver either record-breaking box office or five star reviews, preferably both.
Dangal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and co-stars Sakshi Tanwar as Mahavir Phogat's wife Daya Kaur. It releases this Friday.
