It appears that Aamir Khan isn't half as haanikaarak as the man he plays on screen. 'Wait till you meet the real Mahaveer,' he tweeted.

The way Aamir Khan got into the skin of the character of wrestler Mahaveer Phogat has been awe inspiring. A video documenting his transformation from pot-bellied father to ripped wrestler went viral recently. The actor shed 25 kgs he had put on to play Mr Phogat as an older man in just five months, in order to film his scenes as a young man.
Aamir Khan is currently on a promotional spree for Dangal. The actor will soon be seen on the next episode of director Karan Johar's chat show Koffee With Karan Season 5. He will be accompanied by his Dangal 'daughters,' actresses Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra who play wrestlers Geeta and Babita Phogat respectively. In the promo of the episode, which will air this Sunday, Aamir says he cried while watching the trailer of Dangal.
Meanhwhile, Fatima and Sanya claim that they are Aamir's only friends, which could be true as of now since the actor is devoted heart and soul to Dangal.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal also stars TV actress Sakshi Tanwar as Mahaveer's wife Daya. The film will hit screens on December 23.
