Aamir Khan will do the role of wrestler Mahavir Singh in Nitesh Tiwari's upcoming project 'Dangal'. The 'PK' actor will play role of father of Indian women wrestlers Geeta and Babita Kumari Phogat.

The 'sports' centred movie aims to encourage Indian parents to let their children take up sports as a career option.

However, 'Mr Perfectionist' who is tight-lipped about the project has roped in a Hollywood fitness expert for 'Dangal'.

The actor is going though rigorous training to work on physique and looks with utmost perfection for essaying the role of wrestler.

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan's last release 'PK' has grossed high at the box office and raked in Rs 620 crore globally so far.

Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, 'PK' also stars Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles.
