I can't believe it: Babita Phogat on Suhani Bhatnagar's death

Babita shared two photos of the late actress on her X handle and penned a heartfelt note expressing her disbelief. She wrote in Hindi which we loosely translated to English, “It is very sad that Suhani Bhatnagar, who played my childhood role in the film Dangal, has passed away at such a young age. I can't believe it, shocked by this news!! May God give peace to the departed soul at his feet and may the entire family and fans have the courage to bear this loss in this hour of grief. Om Shanti.”

May God give strength to the entire family in this hour of grief,” read her note.

The biographical sports drama Dangal narrated the story of Geeta and Babita Phogat, who became India's first women wrestlers to appear in international competitions and win medals. It featured Aamir Khan as their father, Mahavir Singh Phogat, Sanya Malhotra as Babita, Fatima Sana Shaikh as Geeta and Zaira Wasim as the young Geeta.


Suhani's final rites will take place in Faridabad's Ajronda crematorium.
