Salman’s Sultan over Aamir’s Dangal for wrestler Babita Kumari?
Babita Kumari reveals that Salman Khan, and not Aamir Khan, is her favourite actor.
Aamir Khan may be bringing her story to the silver screen, but it seems freestyle wrestler Babita Kumari prefers Salman Khan when it comes to acting. In an interview with Hindustan Times, when Babita was asked who her favourite actor was, the 26-year-old was quick to respond, “Mujhe Salman Khan badey achche lagte hain (I’m fond of Salman Khan).”
Babita, however, was all praise for Aamir too. “He’s so down to earth. We’ve met three-four times since he invited us on his TV show and it’s always wonderful,” she said. Babita emphasised the need for a film like Dangal and added that their entire family is excited to watch the film. “If people see a film about wrestling, they’ll want to know about the sport.”
Talking a little bit more about the film, Babita says, “When we were narrated the story by (director) Nitesh Tiwari, we loved the fact that there was nothing fake in it. It was all about what actually happened in our lives.”
Dangal is the real-life story of Dronacharya Award nominee Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari to become champion wrestlers. The film will hit the screens on December 23.
