New Delhi: Bollywood perfectionist - Aamir Khan is known for taking extreme ends to play a character in the film.

From playing a college student in '3 Idiots' to an alien in 'PK', Aamir Khan has done it all to look just perfect in the characters he plays.

The latest look to get added in his list is of a wrestler. Aamir Khan is playing the role of a wrestler Mahavir Phogat, in his next film - 'Dangal' and to look flawless, Aamir Khan has put on 30 kg. The 5 feet 5 inches actor now weighs 98 kg.


The 50-year-old actor has put on two much weight that he reportedly can't even bend to wear socks and tie his shoelaces. He needs someone to help him every time he has to wear shoes.

As if this was not enough, Aamir Khan after putting on so much of weight will soon be seen sweating it out in order to play the role of a 27-year-old man in the same film.

While talking to a leading daily, Aamir said, "I don't think I need [to put on] any more weight, because I have to lose it all to play a 27-year-old man in the same film. So, the heavier I get, the tougher it will be for me to cut down later on."

This is not the first time that Aamir Khan has played with his physical looks to get in to the character. During the time of 'Ghajini' and 'Dhoom 3', the actor underwent strenuous exercise programme to get a muscular body.
