Aamir Khan's physical transformation for "Dangal" has left his industry peers and fans in a tizzy. The first-poster has been met with a positive response, the next one will be even better, believes Salman Khan.

"'Dangal' poster is very nice but when he will come out with his bare-chested poster? It's going to be... have you seen his body? He is after me. I gave him advice that 'Aamir yeh pehlwan ka role hai, ismein six pack nahin banana hai.' Then he said 'nahin yaar, yeh Sushil Kumar log to sab bana kar ghoom rahe hain.' I said that 'tu mat bana'," Filmfare quoted the "Sultan" actor as saying.

Salman had advised Aamir that he shouldn't be aiming at six pack abs as it will not go with his role in "Dangal." Aamir said he needed to have it because Sushil Kumar and all the other wrestlers do. Salman stuck to his point, told him to not go for the packs.

Not very long ago, there was a strong buzz that these two stars aren't on cordial terms any longer. Apparently, Aamir was not too pleased with "Sultan" trailer and felt that the makers had sabotaged his big release this year (which is "Dangal"). Apparently, he even made heated calls to Yash Raj Films head honcho Aditya Chopra regarding the same.

"Dangal" opens in theatres on Dec. 23. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the biopic on senior Olympics coach Mahavir Singh Phogat also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.
