Mumbai: The much-awaited Aamir Khan-starrer 'Dangal' has been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for the universal exhibition without any cuts, trade sources said.
"Two hours and 41 minutes… that’s the running time of #Certified by the CBFC for the universal exhibition, without a single cut,' trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted.

'Dangal', based on the story of a wrestler, Mahavir Phoghat and his journey in training his daughters to become world class wrestlers and defy the notion that the sport is meant for men only, will release in the US on December 21, two days before its release in India (December 23) to cash in on the holiday season there.

Trade sources said the advance bookings for the film have already started in the US.
However, it is not the first time this year that a film release in the US before its release in India.Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan’s 'Dear Zindagi' too released on Wednesday in the US, to benefit from the 'Thanksgiving' weekend there.

'Dangal', which features Aamir in the title role of 'Mahavir Phoghat' and Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra in the roles of his daughters, is all set to hit the theaters in India on December 23, on the Christmas weekend.(UNI)
