For Nitesh Tiwary’s Dangal, he is playing a role of 52 years old retired wrestler, who is the father of four. Although 80% of the movie has Aamir played the role of 52 years old retired wrestler. And Aamir wanted to shoot that part of the movie first. For this role, he had weight up from 72 kgs and 9.67% of body fat to a huge 97 kilos and 38% of body fat. Gaining a weight for the movie was an easy task for Aamir Khan. But the real challenge was to make it lose again those extra fats as it was not an easy task for Aamir, nor it was healthy.
There is no secret of Aamir Khan’s weight gain and consecutive weight loss for Dangal has been quite shocking for everyone, even the actor says so. And now, behind the scenes video details has been uploaded which shows the actor’s transformation. For his movie Dangal on which is playing the role of Mahavir Phogat, 52 years old retired wrestler, he gained and lost 28 kilos of weight. Which was a big challenge for superhero Aamir Khan.
The Director of the movie Nitesh Tiwari thought it might be a good idea to start his movie’s shooting as a younger version of the wrestler because Aamir had already slenderized his weight for Dhoom 2 and Pk and for the second part of the movie on which he has to look like 52 years old retired wrestler gain weight or even wear a body suit. Aamir, however, was not ready for this and wanted to gain weight first and film the larger chunk of the movie. He knew if he does the other way then, he would have no motive to reduce his extra weight later. He also rejected the body suit because he felt it wouldn’t seem original in the movie. Also, he wanted to look fit and in shape while promoting the Dangal after filming.
Aamir also gave one beautiful message to his fans that if you have decided your ultimate goal in your mind , make sure you don’t look up to see it. Because if you look at Mount Everest and think about where you have to reach you will surely give up. But if you set your mind and slowly focus on every step you will reach your goal eventually.
