Aamir Khan stayed away from the award function. But that did not stop his blockbuster film from sweeping the major categories. Dangal has already been touted as the best sports film Bollywood has produced till date. It has not just raised the bar in terms of money (it has crossed Rs 360 crore in India and still counting), it has also set a benchmark for even Aamir Khan, whose future performances will be measured with this one now.

Filmfare acknowledged the immensely praiseworthy film by picking it as the best of 2016. Earlier though, the audience was taken aback when they found no nomination of debutants Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra, the Dangal girls, in any category of the awards. While many said it was a deliberate attempt, others accused Filmfare of not being fair. But Dangal’s big win might just make its ardent fans satisfied.

Aamir had recently clarified that he is never in the race to better box-office figures and it was not on his mind during Dangal as well. The 51-year-old actor also said that he would be open to Dangal being remade in any other language if anyone wishes to do so.
