Bollywood films may still be reeling under the after-effects of demonetisation but Aamir Khan is hopeful that the situation will not be the same for his next film, Dangal. The superstar believes that things will be back to normal by the time his movie releases.
“I hope it doesn’t affect the film. I think things are getting back to normal now. Rock On 2 did get affected because it was released right at that time (when demonetisation was announced by PM Modi) . But I believe Dear Zindagi has done quite well. So hopefully, I think it won’t affect the film,” Aamir said.
Aamir however, refused to comment on Bharat Bandh that has been called by the Opposition.
Earlier in the day, Aamir held a special screening for the media to showcase the behind the scenes footage of Dangal. From how he gained weight for looking like an old wrestler, to losing it quickly, Aamir’s stunning transformation justifies his perfectionist tag. Speaking about the same, Aamir said, “Nitish wanted me to do the younger version first and then put on weight. But I told him if I do so, then there would be no reason for me to lose fat. So I opted for the older role first.”
Aamir’s weight gain and loss procedure was carefully monitored by experts. In the behind-the-scenes footage, Aamir can be seen pumping iron vigorously with the aid of his gym trainers, one of whom happened to be Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Rahul Bhatt. Talking about the impressive physique he built to look his part as a young wrestler, Aamir said, “Building your body depends entirely on your diet. If you don’t follow a proper diet, you will not be able to build your body regardless of the amount of exercise you do.”
