Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who surprised his fans by unveiling his muscular look for Dangal earlier this week, on Thursday said he is a fan of his Andaz Apna Apna co-star Salman Khan’s physique, and considers him as the “original bodybuilder of the industry”.
Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, tells the story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who fought against all the odds to train his daughters, Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, in professional wrestling.
Salman Khan will also be seen as a wrestler in his next film Sultan, which is slated to release on Eid this year.
Asked about his comparison with Salman, Aamir said on the set of Dangal in Ludhiana: “I have always been a huge fan of Salman Khan. In the industry, we have always admired Salman’s body.”
“If someone has been involved in the bodybuilding in our industry, it is Salman. I am a fan of his body and his fitness. I don’t think my body is as good as Salman’s. I try to come close to him. He is the original bodybuilder of the industry.”
