Mumbai: Popular Bollywood celebrities like Salman Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sonakshi Sinha have lauded superstar Aamir Khan’s latest sports-drama “Dangal” calling it a “superlative” and “perfect” film.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, “Dangal”, which released on Friday, is based on a true story and chronicles the empowering journey of a father who trains his daughters in wrestling.

In the film, Aamir plays Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former national champion who, much to the disapproval of his wife and his whole village, trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to wrestle.

Here is what celebrities have said on Twitter:
