The entire team has put out a video which shows the entire process of him putting on weight and losing it as well.
Here, the makers of Dangal launched a making video of the film, focusing on Aamir Khan’s body transformation for the character of ex wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
People don't address him a perfectionist for no cause. When Aamir signed up for Nitesh Tiwary's Dangal, he had a task in hand of playing a retired 52 year old wrestler, who's a father of four.
Aamir gained weight for the film and then eventually lost all the weight to be back to his original body type. From workout to a change in diet, Aamir did everything and finally achieved.
While 80% of the film has Aamir playing the 52 year old wrestler, the actor wanted to shoot those portions first. And he had to bulk up from 72 kgs and 9.67% body fat to a huge 97 kilos with 38% body fat. Now, that wasn't an easy task, nor was it healthy for the actor but Aamir pulled it off.
