Watch video: Aamir Khan goes out of Mahavir Phogat’s character for his ‘Dhaakad’ version


The 50-year-old once again shows his youthful side in the promotional video.

Aamir Khan has become an intelligent marketer over the last decade or so, although he doesn’t agree with this. He has a habit of coming up with surprises to up the film’s anticipation just before the release. Not surprisingly, he has done this for Dangal too through his own version of its well-known number, ‘Dhaakad.’

The song is a typical promotional video where Khan, who has also sung the song, grabs the maximum screen time, except the last 30 seconds when Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra make a heroic appearance. 

The video sees Khan dancing energetically to some youthful dance steps. So, obviously, he isn’t seen in Mahavir Singh Phogat’s character here. Although he might appear unintentionally funny in some parts, one can’t ignore his youthful vigour even at 50. In short, he once again doesn’t appear his age. His two wrestler girls are seen bashing some heavy wrestlers in between. 

Like many promotional videos, he is seen dancing with a group of dancers. He occasionally shows Kushti (wrestling) steps too. 

Khan has once again gained success as a singer. He has convincingly brought the Haryanvi touch to his voice. 

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal will be released on  23 December.
