The only time it (injury) stopped my work was when I hurt my back while doing a wrestling scene, it was painful,” Aamir said.”I couldnt shoot and doctor asked me to rest for two months. I did not have that much time to wait. I told my director, give me two weeks.. I will rest. I went to Ludhiana from Mumbai to shoot… doctor gave me a pain killer injection and due to this I couldnt feel the pain. I took strong pain killer injections,” he said.After working on this biographical drama, Aamirs perception towards wrestlers has changed.”I had not much knowledge about wrestlers. I had heard wrestlers dont have much brain which I think is wrong, they have to be sharp, need to have an explosive speed and be able to understand what your opponent is going to do and react, its is all tactics its not strength… weightlifting is strength,” he said.The Nitesh Tiwari directed sports drama film is set to release on December 23.
