Much before the release of Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal, filmmaker Karan Johar, after watching the film at a private screening, adjudged it as the best film of the decade. The critics too have been floored by the Aamir Khan starrer. 

Now, Salmam Khan is the latest to add to the list of die-hard Dangal fans. The superstar has praised the film in an unexpected manner. He tweeted, “My Family saw #Dangal today evening and thought it was a much better film than #Sultan. Love u personally Aamir but hate u professionally!” 

Sallu’s followers were taken by surprise. Even the talks about the similarity between Sultan and Dangal, as both are based on wrestling and in Haryana, are expected to end with Salman's open declaration.

But this is not all. Aamir got overwhelmed by Salman’s tweet. He replied back, “Sallu, in your “hate” I feel only love. “I love you like I hate you”.” 

Also starring Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles, Dangal released today. The film is just the second after Sultan to get a positive advance booking opening in 2016.
