Aamir Khan has been making headlines for all the weight he had gained for his role in Dangal.

Well, now he's in the news for the opposite reason. The actor has managed to shed all that excess weight (all 25 kilograms of it!) in a matter of a couple of months.

Keep in mind that Khan is 51.

And it looks like we're not the only ones who're impressed -- Actress Lara Dutta also tweeted about witnessing his transformation and lauding him for his dedication.

Aamir has already finished the first schedule of the movie; the actor plays Mahaveer Singh Phogat, a wrestling coach who trained his two daughters, Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat.

Geeta became the first Indian female wrestler to win gold in the 55 kg freestyle category while Babita won a silver medal in the 51 kg freestyle category at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The film will also star actors Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra. Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is scheduled to release on December 23.
