Aamir, 51, responded promptly with this, a smart reference to the Delhi Belly dance number he appeared in:
@BeingSalmanKhan Sallu, in your "hate" I feel only love. "I love you like I hate you"? Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) December 22, 2016
Earlier this week, Aamir Khan told news agency PTI that he was hoping to arrange a special screening for Salman, with whom he starred in cult comedy Andaz Apna Apna, and Shah Rukh Khan but that neither had texted him back. "Everyone is busy," he said at a screening of Dangal yesterday. Shah Rukh Khan is certainly busy prepping for his new release Raees, out next month. Salman Khan is currently shooting Tubelight, pictures of which he posts sporadically on social media.
Dangal, hailed as Aamir Khan's best work yet, is a biopic of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and tells the story of how he trained his daughters Geeta and Babita into medal-winning wrestlers. Aamir plays the fearsome Mahavir, a man bent on glory and who will achieve it by both riding rough-shod over his daughters' wishes and the disapproval of his village. Geeta and Babita are played by actresses Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra. TV star Sakshi Tanwar plays Mahavir Phogat's wife Daya Kaur. Dangal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari.
