Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” has received the phenomenal response from fans and critics and it truly deserves every bit of it. The film is on a record breaking spree, so far it has earned 175 crores in India which is huge.
But there was one person who was extremely unhappy with the film and he is the real coach of Geeta Phogat, Pr Sondhi. Bollywoodpapa earlier reported that how PR Sondhi is extremely miffed with Aamir to show him in bad light and planning to take legal action.
The movie showed 2010 CWG Women’s wrestling coach as a negative character. Sondhi was upset with the final scene in the movie as he said nothing like that happened in real life. The scene shows the coach locking Mahavir Singh Phogat (played by Aamir) in a room during the games due to which he is not able to cheer for his daughter.
When asked if such thing happened, Aamir told ANI: “No, he was not actually locked up in the room. Like in every biopic, some bit of fiction is added but the spirit of the story of Mahavir, Geeta and Babita is intact.
“There may be a few incidents here and there which may not have happened exactly that way but in essence it is their story,” he added. On the other hand, Sondhi is still upset with the makers and actors and claimed that when Aamir talked to him about the film, he didn’t mention about these fictional scenes.
Sondhi told ANI that if such an incident had occurred it would have been all over the news. “If something like that happened in reality, even though there was so much security, do you think the media would have been quiet?” the coach said.
Despite the issue, the Nitesh Tiwari-directorial is still seeing a good run at the box office in both India and overseas market. The domestic earning of “Dangal” is set to cross the Rs. 200 crore mark, while it has already surpassed Rs 100 crore mark in the international market.
