Balali (Haryana): It is a big day for the Phogat family for more than one reason with actor Aamir Khan attending Gold medal-winning wrestling champion and one of India’s most celebrated wrestlers – Geeta Phogat’s wedding in the Haryanvi village of Balali on Sunday. For the uninitiated, Aamir Khan plays the role of Geeta’s onscreen father Mahavir Singh Phogat in upcoming wrestling biopic Dangal.
Geeta and her sister, wrestler Babita Phogat are played by actresses Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra in the film. Dangal tracks how Mahavir Phogat, a wrestler himself, mentored his daughters Geeta and Babita, who went on to win medals in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Aamir is extremely close to the Phogats and has grown emotionally attached to Geeta and her sister Babita for the last two years while filming Dangal. Dressed in traditional attire, Aamir greeted the guests and the paparazzi (of sorts) with folded hands. Here are pictures of Aamir along with bride Geeta, Babita and the real life Mahavir Singh Phogat himself from inside the wedding festivities.
