Actor Ranveer Singh has lauded Aamir Khans sports drama film “Dangal” and has shared his love for him by saying that the Bollywood superstar “possesses a childlike wonderment”.
“Devoted to the religion that is cinema… Passionate to an unparalleled degree… With an awe inspiring honesty… Aamir Khan. ‘Dangal’,” Ranveer posted on Twitter on Thursday.
