"I was offered the film, the role was small. Also my character in the film had to lose a fight to Aamir which I felt was incorrect. I am a wrestler.. I feel I should promote positive things. I don't want to disappoint people," Sangram told PTI.

In 'Dangal', Aamir plays a wrestler and Sangram is all praise for the perfectionist.

"He is a brilliant actor... he is very focused and dedicated. He is excellent in whatever he does. He is a huge star and he playing a wrestler will surely spread positivity about the game," he added.

Currently, Aamir is busy shooting for the film which is slated to release next year.
