Ever since Aamir Khan and Salman Khan announced that both their wrestling-based films, Dangal and Sultan respectively, would release in 2016, people began wondering whose film would indeed be better.
Aamir Khan starer Dangal has been the most awaited movie of the year and finally, it has hit the big screens today. On several events, the movie has been compared with PK and Sultan, with regards to the success factor.
Although, judging by the first look many thought ‘Dangal’ to be on the same lines with ‘Sultan’ but the air of competition can finally be put to rest because we have a winner and Salman Khan hates Aamir for it.
Salman Khan and Aamir Khan’s is a friendship which has had its shares of ups and downs but still held strong over the years. But now, something has made Salman Khan confess publically that he hates Aamir Khan professionally.
Salman recently took to Twitter and expressed his ‘hate’ in the friendliest manner possible.

After Salman’s amazing tweet, Aamir replied to it with a counter tweet proving himself a true perfectionist!
Sallu, in your "hate" I feel only love. "I love you like I hate you" 😘

Following the love-hate, even Aamir spared no time in tweeting and quoting his love-hate formulae.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and based on an incredible true story, Dangal chronicles the highly inspiring and 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, Balali in Haryana, trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to wrestle. Phogat’s dream came true when his elder daughter Geeta won the gold medal for India in the 55 kg weight category at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in 2010.
Salman’s ‘Sultan’ and Aamir’s latest movie ‘Dangal’ are both based on the life of wrestlers and therefore, there has always been news of conflict. But, a single tweet by Salman has cleared all the clouds of rumors.
