The actresses Fatima Shaikh, Zaira Wasim, Sanya Malhota and Suhani Bhatnagar left no stone unturned in portraying the true essence of their characters in the movie, “Dangal”.
The Dhakkad Girls trained vigorously, 6 days a week for about 8-9 months to achieve the pinnacle of wrestling. They were trained by Kripa Bishnoi , the coach of the Indian Wrestling team who kept the same training regime for them as he does for professional wrestlers although, he abated the intensity a bit. The 4 girls used to be in excruciating pain for the first few months but they never uttered a word and never gave up.
Fatima Shaikh who plays the role of Geeta in the movie even fractured her leg while training. Zaira Wasim who was thought to be fragile, transfixed everyone when she acted the wrestling match scene. It was the perfect shot at one go and she, “Wrestled like a lioness” to quote Aamir Khan. This biographical sports drama on the lives of Geeta Phoghat and Babita Kumari flawlessly acted by the Dhakkad Girls inspires the women all over the world to shed their inhibitions, to be a brave heart and to fight their way through their obstacles to reach their dreams.
Aamir khan too got injured on the set. Just have a look at the video by bollywood punch below to know more
