Besides putting on 22 kilos, Aamir has turned vegetarian, and also learning wrestling and Haryanvi for the film.

"You can see that the preparation is on for 'Dangal'. The film is going on floor in next few months but we have not blocked the dates. The casting is still on. I am learning wrestling and learning Haryanvi," Aamir said during the DVD launch of his last film 'pk' in Mumbai on Wednesday.

"I am a vegetarian now. I can't even eat eggs... I am 90 kilos now. I used to weighed 68 kilos at the time of shooting 'pk'," he added.

'Dangal' is reportedly based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Phogat and his daughters Geeta, Babita and Sangita.

Mahavir, along with Geeta and Babita, also made an appearance on one of the episodes of Aamir's issue-based TV show 'Satyamev Jayate'.
