When Dangal was released in 2016, apart from the audience, Bollywood veterans showered praise on Aamir Khan's production. One of the veterans was Javed Akhtar, who labeled Dangal as the best Bollywood film made in the last decade. In one of his tweets, he had said, “Dangal is by any standard the best film our industry has made in the last decade and a half. Hats off to the cast and crew.”

Apart from Mr. Akhtar, Karan Johar conveyed his reaction by tweeting ‘speechless’. Back in 2016, Dangal was largely cherished among the audience. The movie also received Filmfare Award for Best Film in 2017.

Dangal was based on a real life story of Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former wrestler, who decides to fulfill his dream of winning a gold medal for his country by training his daughters for the Commonwealth Games despite the existing social stigmas. The film also starred Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar, Sakshi Tanwar, and Aparshakti Khurana.

On the work front, Aamir Khan is currently shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha which is all set to release in 2022. Along with Aamir, Kareena Kapoor Khan is playing one of the major roles in the movie. Laal Singh Chaddha is a Hindi adaptation of the Hollywood movie Forrest Gump.
