Nitesh Tiwari's Dangal has already caught the attention of fans around the country. Now, the actor is set to release the first song of the film called 'Haanikarak Bapu' on 12 November. 

Interestingly, though the song is released just a couple of days before Children's Day, Khan said that the song is more about the fathers. In the video, Khan spoke about how children often think that their fathers are way too strict and 'Hitler' like. He says, "There are many kids who think that their papas are like 'Hitlers', very strict. In my childhood, I used to think the same. This song from Dangal is dedicated to all the children who think their fathers are 'haanikarak'(harmful) to their health." 

Seeing how the actor traces his roots to the heritage of the director Tahir Husssain, and uncle Nasir Hussain, his wry joke about 'strict fathers' is understandable. As for the title 'Haanikarak bapu', it already has signs of being a hilarious hit.

The actor has gone to great lengths to prepare for the biopic based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters, Geeta and Babita Kumari. It is also reported that though the song will be released on 12 November, it will have an official release on Children's Day with the main cast being introduced to the media on the occassion. 

Dangal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and stars Khan alongside Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanya Malhotra. The film is set to release on 23 December this year.
