After Aamir Khan starrer film Dangal’s immense success everyone sticks their nose into finding reactions of Real Dangal sisters and it is really worth to know about the Phogat sister’s reactions on whom biopic is based!
While indeed you enjoyed movie a lot but there is one scene in the film that Geeta Phogat don’t want to accept and was getting emotional also while watching her onscreen character fighting with Aamir Khan portrayed as a Mahavir Singh Phogat
Speaking to India Today, Geeta divulged that the scene in which on-screen Geeta (Fatima Sana Shaikh) wrestles with Mahavir (Aamir Khan), she didn’t quite enjoy it.
“I DID NOT ENJOY WATCHING THAT SCENE A LOT AS I REALISED HOW I TREATED MY FATHER AND THAT I STARTED THINKING THAT I AM SOME PAHALWAN (HEAVYWEIGHT). I DID NOT LIKE THAT SCENE AS I GOT EMOTIONAL WATCHING IT.”
“IT IS NOT THAT I WRESTLED ONLY ONCE WITH MY FATHER, HE USED TO OFTEN TEST US IN THE AKHARA (TRAINING CENTRE). BUT I LOVED WATCHING THE ENTIRE MOVIE.”
“WE HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE AND IT IS 99% A TRUE REFLECTION OF OUR LIVES AND WE LOVED IT. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK AAMIR SIR AND THE ENTIRE TEAM OF DANGAL FOR SHOWING OUR STORY ON THE BIG SCENE.”
“I HAD TO GO THROUGH THAT IN MY LIFE. JUST LIKE A HEADMASTER HAS TO JUGGLE, HE HAS TO TEACH THE CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL BUT NOT ON THE GROUND.”
I will tell you about our state Haryana, earlier there was no akhara (training centre) for girls but after 2010 till today there are over 50 akharas for women now. So there is a change in Haryana and maybe in other states like UP & Rajasthan attitudes will also change after watching this movie. I love my girls a lot and gave them the same respect as is given to any male child.
