If Aamir Khan’s Dangal trailer has stunned you enough then prep up for the first song of the film. While the song itself will launch on November 12, we can reveal its name and we bet it will have you laughing — Haanikarak Baapu. In fact, Aamir, who plays the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat in the film, has dedicated this song to kids who feel their fathers are dangerous to their lives. The actor in a video said, “There are a lot of kids who think their father is just like Hitler, extremely strict. Even I used to feel the same. So, this song from Dangal is dedicated to all those who feel their fathers are ‘Haanikarak’ for them.”
Ever since the trailer released, the star cast of the film has been making sure to make as many public appearances as possible. After getting shot by shutterbugs at Aamir’s Diwali party, the debutant – Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Sheikh – with the perfectionist actor made news for their glamorous appearance on a magazine cover.
