The superstar, who has undergone intense training to acquire a wrestler’s body, shared the first look of his forthcoming film on Twitter on Monday.
The first look with tagline “Aaj se dangal shuru” doesn’t give out much, and only leaves a hint that the movie revolves around the life of a wrestler — a fact that has been known since long.
In the first look, Aamir’s face is superimposed onto a muddy backdrop.
The actor, whose weight fluctuations for his movies raised alarm bells in his family, has beefed up for the Nitesh Tiwari directorial.
Produced by Aamir, Kiran Rao, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, “Dangal” is said to be based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Phogat. It is yet another of the superstar’s films to release on Christmas weekend — a time when he also scored hits with “Taare Zameen Par”, “3 Idiots”, “Dhoom: 3” and “PK”.
Trade guru Taran Adarsh has given a thumb up to the first look of “Dangal”, and said: “Looks incredible!”
