Dangal: Aamir Khan turns rapper in his version of ‘Dhaakad'


Aamir Khan‘s version of rap song ‘Dhaakad’ from his upcoming film ‘Dangal’ is out. The number, which is a promotional song for the movie, was released on Sunday, December 18 during the telecast of the Lux Golden Rose Awards.

The actor has got behind the microphone for a full-fledged number, eighteen years after crooning ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ for 1998 film ‘Ghulam’. In between, Aamir also mouthed a few verses in ‘Is Deewane Ladke Ko’ from ‘Sarfarosh’ and ‘Mere Haath Mein’ from ‘Fanaa’.

In the song, Aamir’s look is very different from what her dons in the movie. He is dressed in black with a grey sleeve-less hoodie and boots with a lot of bling. His eyes are lined with kohl and has rings on his fingers and pierced ears, and a perfect attitude. Aamir raps and flaunts his hip-hop moves, along with background dancers. Clips of his on-screen wrestler daughters Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra – lifting and throwing bulky wrestlers, also form a part of the video.

The lyrics have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, while Pritam has composed the track. The original version has been rendered by Raftaar in the film.

Directed by Nitish Tiwari, ‘Dangal’ is a biopic on Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to become world class wrestlers and win laurels or the country.

‘Dangal’ is slated to release on December 23.
