As a part of the preparations for his role as a wrestler in his upcoming movie; the “perfectionist” khan of Bollywood recently visited the Phogat sisters. He met with the real life wrestler’s daughters Babita and Geeta Phogat. Aamir Khan will be essaying their father Mahavir Phogat in his upcoming flick titled ‘Dangal’.
After the meeting was decided, the wrestler’s daughters traveled to Mumbai to meet the star. The meeting was said to be quite a detailed one. In the meeting Mahavir’s life was discussed in great detail. Also, the trio talked about the teachings of the wrestler. As a part of the preparations for this character, the actor has increased his weight and built up his physique. He wanted to know more personal things about their father and hence decided to meet them. The trio had reasonably long conversations.
Mahavir’s daughter Geeta has won the first ever gold medal in wrestling, under the 55kg category, at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Both the sisters have one more feather in their cap, after winning
bronze medals in the wrestling championship held in Canada in September 2012.
As per the statement released from the actor: ”I wish to get the feel of his personality before the film goes on floors.” Mahavir’s daughters told him about their father’s life journey and their own as well. Both Geeta and Babita are eager to watch the film once it is made. The daughters were in the city for two days, and Aamir personally took care of them.
The shooting of the film ‘Dangal’ will most probably start in September. It is a Nitesh Tiwari film. The film is based on the great wrestler Mahavir Singh and his equation with his two daughters.
