Indian wrestler Geeta Phogat tied the knot with fellow wrestler Pawan Kumar on Sunday, November 20.


 

Forthcoming Bollywood film ‘Dangal’ is based on the story of Geeta Phogat, her sister Babita Kumari and their father cum coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, himself a former wrestler.

 

The wedding which was held at her hometown Balali in Haryana was attended by none other than Bollywood actor Aamir Khan. It is Aamir who plays Mahavir Singh Phogat in the movie ‘Dangal’.

Geeta, who won India's first ever gold medal in women's wrestling at the Commonwealth Games 2010, is the first women wrestler to have qualified for the Olympics.


The two wrestlers brought an interesting twist to their traditional wedding by taking an eighth phera (marriage wows around the sacred fire) for the girl child, to give the society a powerful message on the 'Beti Bachao Beti Padao' campaign.
