Wrestler Geeta Phogat and fiance Pawan Kumar could end up having a star-studded wedding come November 20, as the cast and crew of the upcoming film Dangal, which is based on Phogat’s life, might be in attendance. Aamir Khan, who plays the wrestler’s father Mahavir Singh Phogath in the film, and director Nitesh Tiwari have both been invited to the event.
And it looks like Aamir is all set to present Geeta with a wedding gift she’ll not forget any time soon. According to DNA’s sources, “Aamir shares a great bond with Geeta. The actor interacted with her and her sister Babita when they visited the sets of his upcoming film. He treats Geeta like his own daughter and wanted to do something special for her. He is trying his best to pick out the perfect outfit for Geeta.”
The PK star plans to gift her the outfit a day before she ties the knot and has also reportedly taken out three days from his schedule for the function, which will take place in Charkhi Dadri, Haryana, which is around 15km away from the gold medallist’s home in Balali.
Dangal is a sports biopic, which is set to release next month. It focuses on Mahavir’s decision to teach his daughters, Geeta and Babita, wrestling – a move that is met with some consternation by other characters in the film, who find the sport unsuitable for women. It charts the sisters’ journey from their struggles in Haryana to their success in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
