Aamir Khan had two special visitors last week. Babita and Geeta Phoghat, daughters of wrestler Mahavir Phoghat, flew down to the city from Haryana to meet him. Aamir’s much awaited upcoming biopic 'Dangal' is based on their father’s life- Mahavir Phoghat.
A spokesperson confirms the news and adds, “Aamir was very keen to meet them, and all of their schedules finally matched. So the girls came down to Mumbai. Aamir was a gracious host and ensured that they were taken care of. It was an emotional meeting for the trio. They discussed Mahavir’s life, what he had taught the girls, and more.”
Aamir wanted to meet Babita and Geeta primarily to know more about their dad. The spokesperson further adds, “He wants to understand his personality before starting to shoot for the film. The trio had a long conversation, where the girls provided him with insight into their own respective journeys and their lifestyle back home. They stayed in the city for a couple of days and are excited to see how the film will turn out.”
'Dangal' will go on-floors in September and is slated to hit the big screens next year.
