Aamir Khan's gift to screen Dangal for Shabana Azmi

Aamir Khan starrer Dangal has completed its shooting and all set to release in Christmas this year. Audience will get the movie in December but Aamir Khan had screened his film for the first time for handpicked guests on September 18. And the verdict was consentient.

A source present at the screening said, “It was premature to show the film considering Dangal releases during Christmas. But, it was a special occasion on Sunday. It was Shabana Azmi’s birthday. Aamir Khan and his wife are very close to Shabana and Javed saab. So, Aamir Khan sportingly arranged a screening attended by Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar and around 20 other very close friends of Aamir Khan.”

The film has theme of women’s empowerment not wrestling, “It is not a film about wrestling like Sultan. It’s about a wrestler’s efforts to train his daughters into wrestling. It’s very different from
Sultan. And,very heart-warming. At a time when cinema like Pink and Parched address themselves to the question of women’s empowerment, Aamir’s Dangal will show him to be a true champion of feminism.”

On the film subject Shabana Azmi said, "Dangal is brilliant. Another blockbuster from Aamir Khan. It is a heart-warming story beautifully scripted with very convincing performances. The girls are wonderful and its Aamir Khan’s best performance to date. The gender politics are so relevant for the times and the unexpected climax will make even the most hardened heart cry. It is emotional without being sentimental. Congratulations to writer – director Nitesh Tiwari and the whole team. It’s a hundred percent winner.”
