Aamir Khan today said he decided to unveil the poster of his film upcoming 'Dangal' two days ahead of the release of his friend Salman Khan's 'Sultan' as he felt it will help to grab attention of the audience.

"'Sultan' is going to be a huge super-duper hit. I want the millions of people, who will watch 'Sultan', to see the poster of 'Dangal'. We just want to tell people that our film will also come in a few months (December).
"'Sultan' will have a bumper opening. We are using the huge potential that 'Sultan' has to propel our film," Aamir told reporters here at the poster launch of 'Dangal'.
Salman and Aamir, who earlier worked together in 'Andaz Apna Apna', play wrestlers in their respective films 'Sultan' and 'Dangal'.
"There are no similarities. Only the aspect of wrestling is common. There are so many films that talk about revenge, so many romantic films. But the story of both our films is different," Aamir said.
The "3 Idiots" actor is all praise for the trailer and look of Salman's film "Sultan".
"I love the way the director (Ali Abbas Zafar) has shot the film. It looks exciting. I hope it is a huge success and breaks all records," he said.
Salman's trainer for "Sultan" even trained Aamir for "Dangal". Since both the Khans were shooting simultaneously for their respective films, Salman's trainer Rakesh couldn't be with Aamir for sometime as he was busy with the "Dabangg" star.
However, Aamir, 51, did not feel offended when Rakesh chose to be with Salman for 'Sultan'.
"I know Rakesh regularly trains Salman and I am a new person. I told Rakesh when the training schedule of 'Sultan' and 'Dangal' clash, you give preference to Salman. I don't feel bad," Aamir said.
According to the 'Dhoom 3' star, it is challenging to lose and gain weight. "Hats off to him (Salman)," he added.
Aamir plans to watch 'Sultan' on July 6, the day it hits the silver screen.
Nitesh Tiwari-directed 'Dangal' releases on December 23.
