Aamir Khan fans now have one more reason to eagerly look forward to the release of his latest film, Dangal.

Khan, who plays the legendary wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in the film, is also going to sing or rather, rap for the film.

According to a Mid-Day report, the song is going to be a 'peppy track' that will be used for promoting the film.

Khan's singing skills were lauded in the late 1990s when the song 'Aati kya Khandala' from the film Ghulam (1998) became wildly popular.


Now, Khan, who is known to be a perfectionist, reportedly practiced the rap for over two weeks before recording. The song has been composed by Pritam, and Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned the lyrics.

A video will also be shot for the song.

Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is being co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Disney, and is set to hit the theatres this Christmas.
