Aamir Khan starrer Dangal has proved to be one of the most loved films of this year. The film is based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who hails from Balali village in Haryana.
Aamir had visited the ex-wrestler’s house in November when he attended Geeta Phogat’s wedding. During his visit to the village, everybody insisted Aamir on holding a special screening of the film. The actor had promised that he would do so once the film releases. And yes, Aamir fulfilled the promise he made to the villagers; he held a special screening of the film for the entire village on Friday.
Since any theatres around the village is approximately 100 kms away, Aamir made arrangements for a big screening for the whole village, the first ever screening for the entire village.
All arrangements – from snacks, seating arrangements, transportation of the villagers to the theatre – were specially taken care of by Aamir.
The reactions of the villagers while watching the movie were very good. They couldn’t stop clapping and crying during the movie. Even Mahavir and his family were present.
After the screening, all the villages spoke to Aamir. They told him how it was a proud and glorifying moment for the village. Aamir was very happy with the kind of responses he received from them.
