When “Dangal” was released in 2016, it was critically acclaimed for its moving story of a father who trains his young daughters to help them become India’s first world-class female wrestlers.
It comes as no surprise then that the film has inspired many women wrestlers to step into the light, and continuously push the boundaries of what a woman can achieve in this sport.
Recently, a video of a girl from Maharashtra participating in a Dangal emerged on the internet. The girl is seen with an unlikely opponent—a boy! Whether she wins or loses, her decision to wrestle with a boy her size is admirable, because it shows that gender does not come in the way of passion and skill.
Watch the video below, as the duo engages in a match which left the audience on the edge of their seats. Will she win?
This gutsy girl from Maharashtra facing a boy.
Can she win?
