Aamir Khan’s Dangal will be released in Tamilnadu on 23rd December as 'Yudham'. Produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Siddharth Roy Kapur, Yudham (Dangal) is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and has Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim, and Suhani Bhatnagar in the lead roles. While interacting with the media recently, Aamir Khan said, "Yudham aka Dangal is a film produced with love and care. The heart of our film says - 'there is no difference between a male and a female'.
The girls of our country will excel in sports as men. Films like Yudham will encourage more women to venture into sports. It was wonderful to work with these talented, hard working girls in this film. In fact, I learned a lot from them. After 27 years, I realize that these girls are far better and ahead of the time in terms of acting. My daughter Ira is a football player and I am glad she loves sports. I would appreciate her coming into the film industry as I love films. I love to do a film in any local language and love to work with Rajinikanth sir in Tamil and Chiranjeevi sir in Telugu".
