Mumbai: Aamir Khan may be one of the most celebrated actors of his time and a front runner for this year’s National Award (Best Actor) but that does not change his resolution to not any wards functions. His last release ‘Dangal’, which is one of the all-time highest grossing films in the history of Bollywood, is one of the frontrunners for this year’s prestigious National Award (Best Picture) and Aamir may also be considered for the best Actor honour.

When asked if the four-time National award winner will have a change of heart if the honour is yet again bestowed upon him, his answer is sans diplomacy and very precise. He reported said: I don’t go to award functions. For me the biggest award is the audiences’ reaction and love. I don’t want to comment on awards.

 

'Dangal', which released last December, is based on the life of wrestlers Geeta, Babita and their father Mahavir Phogat.

Aamir, who portrayed the role of the wrestling family patriarch Mahavir Singh Phogat, had earlier said his main motive was to make the audience aware of the struggles and achievements of the Phogat sisters and their subsequent success at international sporting events.
