Now, while the team is busy in shortlisting the actors from the auditions, Aamir Khan is personally checking the potential of shortlisted actors & giving his opinion too.

The main requirement for all locals is that they should have robust personality & should speak Haryanvi fluently.

‘Dangal’ which is directed by ‘Bhoothnath Returns‘ director Nitesh Tiwari is slated to release on 23rd December 2016.
