Aamir Khan has always preferred critical and audience approval over any awards or profits at the tickets counters. He keeps away from any glamorous promotions and allows his work to do the major talking. No wonder, Dangal has become yet another success story in Aamir Khan’s filmography. And for the remaining Khans and his contemporaries, it is a record which is slowly inching towards creating another benchmark in Bollywood – the 400 crore club.
Dangal is based on wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat’s journey of training his daughters Geeta and Babita to become world-class wrestlers. It also won the Best Film award at the recently held Filmfare and Aamir was announced the Best Actor. Though the superstar in his signature style, kept away from the event, but his fandom didn’t stop him from sweeping the big night.
Dangal also marks the Bollywood debut of Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar. Sakshi Tanwar, Girish Kulkarni and Aparshakti Khurrana played pivotal roles too.
