Dangal released in India during Christmas last year, when the fate of the film was still being anticipated by trade analysts and the makers. Just a day ahead of Dangal hit theatres, Aamir Khan, who confessed to being extremely nervous, told reporters: "Numbers do not matter to me, neither do awards. The audience liking my film is equivalent to winning an award for me."
This year, Dangal opened the Beijing Film Festival in China and later released as Shuai Jiao Baba, which translates in English as 'Let's Wrestle, Dad.' Aamir Khan co-stars with Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and TV star Sakshi Tanwar in Dangal, which is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and based on Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
