Aamir hopes 'Dangal' won't be affected by demonetisation

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Superstar hopes that the business of his upcoming film "Dangal" does not get affected by the government's move.

Prime Minister Modi's decision to withdraw Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes has been hailed as well as criticised by different sections.



Films like "Rock On 2", "Force 2" have been affected due to demonetisation.

"I hope it (demonetisation) doesn't affect our film. I think things are slowly getting back to normal. I think 'Rock On 2' got affected (due to demonetisation) because it had released right at that time," he said.

"But I believe 'Dear Zindagi' (starring and Alia Bhatt) is doing quite well. Hopefully I think it will not affect our film," Aamir told reporters here at the promotional event of "Dangal".

The actor chose to avoid query on the nationwide called today by the opposition. "I don't want to get into political situations," he said.

Notably, in the past several films were available online before its official release.

When asked about checking film piracy, Aamir said, "We try our best to curb it."

Helmed by Nitesh Tiwari, "Dangal" revolves around the life of Mahavir Singh, an ex-wrestler forced to give up his dreams of winning gold for India in international wrestling due to lack of financial support and how he then trains his daughters Geeta and Babita into world-class wrestlers.

The film is set to release on December 23.
