Last night, Aamir Khan held a screening of Dangal which was attended by Sachin Tendulkar, politician Raj Thackeray, ace wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat.
Also present were Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, who are essaying the role of Phogat sisters in the film.
It was expected that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will also make it to the special screening of Dangal. But the other two superstars were missing from the scene. On being asked about the same, Aamir told a media agency, "I have messaged both of them (Shah Rukh and Salman), whenever they want to see the film. Both are busy now, so whenever they want to see, we will screen it."
Mahavir Phogat, who saw the film, said he was impressed with the way Aamir got into the character. "He has worked very hard. I hope the film brings some changes in society where there is a lot of inequality towards our girls," he said.
Dangal is helmed by Nitesh Tiwari and will release on December 23.
