New Delhi: Ace Indian wrestler Geeta Phogat tied knot with another wrestler Pawan Kumar in a grand wedding ceremony in her ancestral village Bhiwani on Sunday which included several prominent wrestlers, politicians and over 5,000 residents and the biggest guest of the day was actor Aamir Khan.
With what is already a high profile marriage attracting a lot of attention from all across India, Geeta further took a step forward to strengthen women power.
She along with her husband Pawan took eight Pheras instead of the customary seven for 'Beti Bachao Beti Padao campaign'.
Through the campaign, the wrestler attempted to promote education of females in the village and indeed the entire country, with the primary step being stopping female infanticide.
Amir Khan, who was present along with his cast team of Dangal, was quoted saying by TOI, "We are here to bless and greet Geeta who is an icon now. Our presence is just token of love, her real gift awaits next month."
The Bollywood superstar also had a special gift planned for the bride and he did spend good amount of time with the bride.
