Aamir Khan, who celebrated 10 years of Rang De Basanti with journalists in Mumbai yesterday, looked pretty confident about his next film Dangal, which is scheduled to release by Christmas 2017

The actor, who will be seen essaying the character of Mahavir Phogat in the film, had three things to say about the biopic which went floors in September 2015.

On shooting Dangal

Dangal is almost 90 per cent done. I am done shooting for the portions which require me to be fat and look old. The final schedule will start in June.

On how challenging the film was

The biggest challenge for me in Dangal is still left. Everyone is aware that I gained a lot of weight for the film, but very few know that for the same film, I need to lose weight too. My next challenge is to get back in the shape and get the physique which I had in Ghajini and Dhoom 3.

On playing a National-level wrestler:

In the initial portions of the film, I will be seen playing a national level wrestler just like Sushil Kumar. I have started to lose weight. I need to lose 25 Kgs and have a toned very low fat body.
