Video: Trailer of Aamir Khan starrer ‘Dangal’ released
The trailer of Superstar Aamir Khan’s highly anticipated sports-drama ‘Dangal’ was finally unveiled today.
The ‘PK’ actor packs a punch as a father training his daughters to make them award-winning wrestlers in the trailer. Aamir shared the trailer of the real-life inspired drama on social media, writing, “Here goes… Tell me what you think. Love. a.”
The trailer begins with 51-year-old Aamir’s character Mahavir Singh Phogat hoping that his yet-to-be-born child is a son, who will win a gold medal for the country someday.
However, when Mahavir is blessed with four daughters, he takes it upon himself to train them as world-class wrestlers.
He even tells his wife, played by actress Sakshi Tanwar, “Hamari chhoriyaan chhoron se kam hain ke?”
If the trailer is any indication, the film is bound to break every stereotype in the book about gender equality.
A heavily-bearded, heavily-accented Aamir is perfect in his restrained act of wrestler-father but it is his two daughters Geeta and Babita, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, who shine in the trailer.
While there are a lot of similarities between Dangal and Sultan, like the backdrop of wrestling, Haryana, Olympics and time lapses, the storylines couldn’t have been any more different. While Sultan essayed a wrestler’s journey, Dangal seems more like a father’s journey.
Aamir has already held special screenings for his friends, including Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Shabana Azmi and Ayan Mukerji. Johar summed up his review of the film in a tweet that read, “Just saw DANGAL…haven’t seen a better film in a decade…… speechless!!!!”
Produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Disney’s Siddharth Roy Kapur, ‘Dangal’ has been directed Nitesh Tiwari. It will hit theatres on December 23.
