Earlier it was also reported that Aamir will gift her bridal dress, but unfortunately it has to be bought by bride’s Mama, so he just stuck a fruit box, also he added that the film is itself a gift to her.
A Journey of Motivation –
There was a lot of protest when Phogat used to train his girls. But now the mentality has changed after Geeta and other girls won world championships. Mahavir has now gone to Bollywood. The entire nation can see him now. He trains 15-20 girls from the village.” – Mahavir Phogat niece said
Surprisingly, the actor Aamir Khan frequently visited Mahavir’s old house to prepare for the biopic. Makers of the film altered the home with paintings and other things which the spectators will be seeing in the film.
He also talked about the Demonetization effect on the film Dangal –
I will not comment on this matter.” He did, however, say that it hadn’t been difficult to implement wedding preparations. “As far as cash for the wedding is concerned, I had no issues. All my cash is in the bank and payments were made in cheque,”.
About the performance of the young Geeta and Babita –
The child version of Babita and Phogat is played by Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar.
“If I have to rate our performance in the film, I would say that these kids performed 10 times better than what I did. No, I am not exaggerating anything. Once the film releases, the audience will understand. I have been working in the industry for last 25 years, but these kids are highly talented,.”
Looking forward for the film to be release on 23rd December 2016.
