There is much talk about Aamir Khan’s fitness regime for his two looks in the upcoming film Dangal. The actor plays the role of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in the biopic, and had to first gain weight and then lose it all to portray the different stages of Phogat’s life.
During a media interaction on the sets of Dangal in Ludhiana, Aamir spoke about his fellow actor Salman Khan’s body and fitness levels, with whom he has often been compared. “I’ve always been a fan of Salman as an actor, and of his body as well. He has had a lean, muscular and cut-up body from the very beginning of his career. So, I’ve always been a fan of his body, and his fitness. I don’t think my body is as good as his. For me, he is the ideal, and I try to come close to him,” said the PK actor.
When asked about Sultan, yet another wrestling film that’s due to release this Eid, Aamir said he was eagerly waiting to watch it as well, and the two films are very different. He went on to draw comparisons between the two films, as well as differences. For one, we know we’re seeing Salman in a langot in Sultan, will the audiences be treated to a similar avatar from Aamir?
