So far, Dangal has grabbed eyeballs for Aamir Khan’s character training his daughters in the rather uncouth and even ‘brutal’ sport of wrestling, but the film’s latest song Gilheriyaan explores the softer side of Geeta Phogat. The video, which was released today, shows Geeta (played by Fatima Sana Shaikh) experiencing her first taste of freedom away from her tough-love father. There’s a lot to be loved about the video as Geeta’s allowed to explore her feminine side. Scenes that are sure to strike a chord with girls viewing the video is when Geeta slowly grows out of her boy-cut and grows a ponytail. Another heartwarming scene hints at Geeta falling in love with a fellow wrestler.
Until now, Dangal’s Dhaakad and Haanikarak Baapu show the grueling side of the medal-winning wreslter’s training and Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat. In Gilheriyaan, we get glimpses of who Geeta is as a person. The video sees her spending time with a female friend as the two workout, sing songs and shop at the mall. The friends even gush over a pastel top together at Shoppers Stop – nothing screams quality time with girlfriends more than. The song is interspersed with scenes of Geeta’s training at home and how she’s breaking the rules that had been set by her father to grow as a person.
