The upcoming biographical sports drama film is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by Disney Studio India.

When asked if Ayushmann gave any tips to Aparshakti, the "Vicky Donor" star told PTI, "I am happy. It is an amazing opportunity to work with Aamir. I did not give him any tips.

He is a very good actor himself. We had similar influences, but we are different at the same time."

"Dangal" will see Aamir in the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat, who taught wrestling to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat.

Ayushmann says his brother, who is a known radio jockey and theatre actor, will play a Haryanvi character in the film.

"He is playing a Haryanvi guy in the film. He has captained Haryana's cricket team, so it comes naturally to him. He is a linguist himself. I am looking forward to the film."

"Dangal" is scheduled to release on December 23, 2016.
