Aamir Khan to shed 25 kilos for ‘Dangal’


Aamir Khan, who has gained around 90 kg weight for his forthcoming biopic, ‘Dangal’ is now in the process of losing 25 kilos. The perfectionist has started the process of shedding weight with the help of his trainer and by following a strict diet.

Talking to reporters, Khan said, “I have put on weight for ‘Dangal’ and have to reduce it as well. I am a national level wrestler like Sushil Kumar ji. I had to put on 25 kgs, so have to now reduce 25 kgs and not just that make it look like Sushil Kumar…muscular, low-fat.”

He added, “The phase of being overweight and elderly is about to get over. The process has started and my weight has started reducing now…I have started losing weight. My big challenge is to come back into shape like how my body was in ‘Ghajini’ or ‘Dhoom 3’.”

In ‘Dangal’, Aamir Khan portrays the role of Haryana-based Mahavir Singh Phogat, who teaches wrestling to his his daughters.

‘Dangal’ is slated to release in December.
