In the new poster, Aamir takes centre stage and is flanked by both the younger and older versions of the Phogat sisters, Geeta and Babita. Suhani Bhatnagar plays the short-haired, stout and determined young Geeta while Zaira Wasim features as young Babita. Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh star as the adult versions of Geeta and Babita in the Nitesh Tiwari-directed film.

The poster was heralded by the song Dhaakad. Watch here:
Aamir Khan, who has confessed to growing emotionally attached to the Phogat family since he began filming Dangal, was the guest of honour at the real life Geeta Phogat's wedding, which was held in the Haryani village of Balali last Sunday. Aamir arrived at the wedding with his Dangal co-stars including Sakshi Tanwar, who plays Aamir's wife in the film.
The first poster of the movie was released in July:

About his younger co-stars in the film, Aamir told IANS: "If I have to rate our performance in the film, I would say that these kids performed ten times better than what I did. No, I am not exaggerating anything. Once the film releases, the audience will understand. I have been working in the industry for last 25 years, but these kids are highly talented."
Interest in Dangal was piqued with a very muddy poster of Aamir last year:

Watch the trailer of Aamir Khan's Dangal here:
Aamir Khan, who never does things by half measures, put on 25 kilos to play Mahavir Singh Phogat as an older man. He then dropped the excess weight to play the younger version of the Haryanvi wrestler.
Dangal hits screens on December 23.
