Amir Khan, “TOM HANKS” of Bollywood competing his own self. That’s easier said than done. And much tough in an industry rapt with a fever of film production in the set incarcerations of box office triumph, formula and gripping masses. Dangal has made INR 330.96 crore, likely to go much beyond INR 340.8 crore.
Amir Khan preferred and took risky initiative to break stereotypes, so entrenched in the minds of filmmakers. But the Amir Khan’s risky initiative and glamour-less film seems to be breaking the records of box office.
Unlike his fellow colleagues from Bollywood, in Dangal Amir screened himself as an ageing father to two grown-up daughters. One seldom sees a successful rocking star conceding himself to a character role? The actor went under lot of practice and pains to learn wrestling just to make the film close to reality and make it a super hit movie. Even though Khan has a very minor role where he wrestles with his collaborator, he makes sure he looks like a real wrestler. Khan continued to meet frequently Phogat family to instil certain bearings in his own role in Dangal. He attended Geeta Phogat’s marriage ceremony to promote his film, but he ensured that the family gets all due attention.
The shooting of film took place in so perfect manner that not even a single character in Dangal appears out of place. All the characters in the film are attached together by their passion to put up an inordinate show. You don’t see often an amalgamation of absolutely raw talents of Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar, Sakshi Tanwar, Aparshakti Khurrana and Girish Kulkarni in the big budget movie with super star like Amir Khan?
