The guy is taller than Mahavir, and is a former state-level champion, but gets defeated by Singh effortlessly. When he tells Singh to be proud of this feat, he says that Singh has defeated a state-level champion, to which Singh says that the guy has lost from a former National level champion, referring to himself. Fans get to see a buffed Aamir Khan, taking down a man, who seems to be taller than him. It is considered as one of the best scenes of the movie by fans.

A couple comes to the Singh family, and complain Mahavir, as their son has gotten beat up. Mahavir asks his nephew about this and he says he has nothing to do with this matter. Then it is revealed to the head of the family, and the former wrestler, that his little girls have beaten up the boy. For the audience, this came as a huge surprise, and the same reaction came from Aamir Khan’s character, as he was left astonished. This is where the titular dangal really begins.
There is a small Dangal competition in the town, and Mahavir registers the names of his daughters for the event.
