Even though I am not much of a sportsperson, I love watching sports dramas. Sports drama, when executed correctly, have the potential of turning around the careers of the lead actors. Be it SRK after “Chak De India”, or PeeCee after “Mary Kom”, Farhan Akhtar after “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” or even Sushant Singh Rajput post “M.S Dhoni: the Untold Story”, their depiction of sportsman valor and vigor resulted in many accolades and established them as “actors” and not just “stars”
In a country like India, where anything other than medicine and engineering requires a determination beyond the realms of normalcy, pursuing sports as a profession and succeeding at it is commendable. Sports not only need a lot of mental endurance, but also require immense physical strength and stamina, and hence the stories of sports’ persons are very heart-warming and motivating.
When I read the word prompt Vigor at Daily Post today, it made me smile because I can’t think of a better way to describe Aamir Khan’s incredible transformation for Dangal, which releases on 23rd December 2016. Now Bhai fans are gonna say “Well Aamir copied Bhai because he did Sultan first”, but even they know that Salman and Aamir really have no comparison whatsoever 😛 (which Salman says himself by the way). Aamir has always been a perfectionist, but this time I think he has surpassed himself. Have a look at this video at UTV Movies’ Facebook page, and decide for yourself:
Isn’t he inspiring? I mean from 97 kgs to 6-pack, that accounts for something right? That’s a lot of mental and physical vigor in 5 minutes! The next time I want to miss a workout, I am going to watch this video 😛 Amazing stuff, and I think Dangal is one movie I am not going to miss, come what may. The real story of an ex-wrestler pushing his daughters to the glory of victory at the international stage in a sport like Wrestling, is bound to tug the chords of the sentimental me!
Are you looking forward for Dangal as much as I am? Don’t forget to let me know!
