Video: Dangal Between a Young Maharashtra Girl and an Unlikely Opponent

She is an example of someone who is pushing the boundaries of what women can achieve in wrestling, a move which has garnered praise from Indians everywhere!

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.
