Aamir Khan’s Dangal is the most awaited film of the year. The Bollywood actors reprises the role of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in the film. Phogat had trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to become wrestlers. The 2016 film unravels their journey to become award winning female wrestlers of the country. The movie is slated for release on December 23, the Christmas weekend but a few lucky ones got a chance to see the movie beforehand. Aamir had held a special screening of the film even before the release of its trailer. He invited his close friends from the industry to get their views on the film and filmmaker Karan Johar is one of them.

 The Dharma Productions head was so impressed after watching the movie that he took to twitter to express his views on the same. While the whole nation was still waiting to get a glimpse of the film’s trailer, KJo had already given his verdict on Dangal. While it was unlikely that Aamir Khan would waste his effort on something unworthy, getting first hand review from the most successful filmmaker of the county just brings some relief. Now we have watched the trailer and songs of the film and understand what Karan must have went. Everything looks so intriguing and everyone is just desperate to see the film now.
Karan Johar tweeted that, “Just saw DANGAL…haven’t seen a better film in a decade……speechless!!!!”. Karan Johar attended the screening of Dangal at Aamir’s Mumbai residence along with directors Ayan Mukerji and Zoya Akhtar. The 50-year-old filmmaker is expressive about his feelings and never shuns from sharing his views and opinions on something. Be it a friend or rival, KJo is always vocal about what he likes or not. So now that we know what Aamir Khan’s Dangal has to offer, we cannot hold back our excitement to watch the film.  (ALSO READ: Is Karan Johar the godfather to Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s baby Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi?)


Recently, Salman Khan had also made a film on the subject of wrestling. The movie was a blockbuster and crossed Rs 100 crore mark within three days of its release. Although, wrestling is the core concept of Aamir Khan’s film too, the whole story differs from Sultan. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and Zaira Wasim in titular roles. Telly actress Sakshi is seen in the role of Aamir Khan’s wife in the film.
