Aamir Khan's upcoming ambitious project Dangal will reportedly feature real wrestlers from around the world to add authenticity to the plot. 

Based on the life of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Phogat, shooting for the film is on in Ludhiana, where four international wrestlers have already arrived. Apparently, the script demanded international wrestlers for bouts with Mahavir's daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat, played by debutants Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.

Presented by Disney, Dangal is produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Siddharth Roy Kapur and directed by Nitesh Tiwari. It is set for a Christmas 2016 release.
