In "Dangal", Aamir plays the role of real-life Haryana-based wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. The movie traces his journey from being a young wrestler to encouraging his daughters to pursue wrestling and earn laurels for the country.

"The phase of being overweight and elderly is about to get over, and I've started losing weight and this 10-15 percent will be shot in June, so my next big challenge is to come back into shape like how my body was in 'Ghajini' or 'Dhoom 3' and I have to make this body now. The process has started and my weight has started reducing now," he added.

Aamir has happily flaunted his overweight self and grey hair and beard for the film. He had suffered a shoulder injury during the wrestling scenes shot in Ludhiana.

The film is slated to release on Christmas this year.
