Actor Amir Khan has emerged as one of the most successful and popular actors in the Hindi film industry in his three-decade career. Every time the actor announces a film, there is an expectation from him to bring something new to the table. National Award-winning director Nitesh Tiwari who along with Aamir Khan made Dangal in 2016.
Recalling the time when Nitesh was just nursing dreams of approaching Aamir to play Mahavir Singh Phogat for Dangal, he shares, “It was a long-shot, it was overly ambitious of me to think that he would act in my movie. I would wonder why would he do it, why would he want to play a 52-year-old fat man? But, I was very surprised by the way he reacted to the script. I only had an opinion about him as an actor and I wanted him in my film, purely because of the value he brings to the table. He is a great artist.”
When asked if he’d want to collaborate with actor Aamir Khan again after their film ‘Dangal’, filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari said, “If you give me something to do with him…I’d jump and do it, that’s how much I like him.” “I…hope…in…future, either I’d have [a project] which would excite him or he would have something that would excite me,” he added.
