Aamir would been seen sharing screen space with Amitabh Bacchhan, Katrina Kaif and Sana Fatima of 'Dangal' fame. Aamir's film is slated to release in the latter half of the year and is said to be loosely based on the novel, 'Confessions Of A Thug' written by Philip Meadows Taylor. Aamir's body transformation for each role has earned him the title of Mr. Perfectionist. From gaining dozens of kilos and losing it all for just one movie, Aamir's dedication towards his role is admired and respected not only by his fans but his peers from the film industry too.
