The trailer and the songs along with their making from the Aamir Khan starrer Dangal has astonished the audiences and this time, it's not just that! Aamir transformed to look like the quintessential Haryanvi wrestler in his next, gaining weight and then getting back in ship shape.

One of the best akharas in India is impressed by the movie's content that has been released and invited Aamir Khan to visit the Motibagh Akhara in Kolhapur. The Akhara has added to Maharashtra's respect by introducing one of the best pehelwaans to the country.

Aamir’s dedication has not only left fans impressed, but the wrestling community too. Veteran wrestler Rustame- Hind Dadu Chaugle, who heads Motibagh Akhara in Kolhapur, one of the oldest Akharas in the country, will host Aamir this Monday.

The invitation letter reads,“We are touched by the idea of getting kushti to mainstream cinema through the movie and inspiring the young generation to indulge in the sport. We respect Aamir and want to honour him.”

Dadu’s son Vinod Choughle, also a pehlwaan, said, “The trailer of Dangal is really impressive." He further added, "My father knows Mahavir Phogat and we have always been inspired by his work and admire him. Aamir has done a brilliant job and looks like an actual wrestler in the film.” He adds that preparations to felicitate the actor are underway.

The actor also will be indulging in milk drinking competition. Vinod Choughle says, “It is gracious of him to accept our invitation. Our pehlwaans are going to showcase their skills before him and we would love it if he joins us for a fun round of kushti. We also plan to challenge him to a milk drinking competition. So, we hope he is ready to face the test.”

A source said, “It is a privilege for Aamir to be honoured by one of the most prestigious and traditional akharas of India."
