Bollywood actor Salman Khan heaped praise on Aamir Khan’s latest film ‘Dangal’, a sports drama which released worldwide on Friday, calling it much better than his own film ‘Sultan’.
Salman, whose family saw the film, took to Twitter to share his love and envy for Aamir and his film.
“My family saw ‘Dangal’ and thought it was a much better film than ‘Sultan’. Love you personally Aamir but hate you professionally,” he tweeted.
Earlier this year, Salman had essayed the role of a wrestling champion from Haryana whose successful career wreaks havoc in his personal life in Ali Abbas Zaffar’s ‘Sultan’. The film had managed to win both critical claim and commercial success.
Aamir responded to his tweet by saying: “Salman Khan, in your ‘hate’ I feel only love. ‘I love you like I hate you’.”
Despite being contemporaries, the two actors have stayed friends throughout their acting career.
Aamir’s ‘Dangal’ chronicles the highly inspiring and empowering journey of a father who fights against all odds to make his daughters the best wrestlers of the country.
In the film, which is based on a true story, Aamir plays Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former national champion who, much to the disapproval of his wife and his whole village, trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to wrestle.
Dangal also stars Sakshi Tanwar and marks the debut of Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra who play Phogat’s daughter Geeta and Babita. It is helmed by Nitesh Tiwari and has been dubbed in Tamil and Telugu.
