Mumbai | Wrestler-turned-actor Sangram Singh has turned down a role in superstar Aamir Khan’s next film Dangal. Dangal is based on the real-life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh and his famous daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat. 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. 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 in Ludhiana for the film which is slated to release next year.
