New Delhi: Gold medalist Babita Kumari Phogat is all set to make her acting debut with &TV's show, Badho Bahu, reports suggest.
According to a Bollywoodlife.com report originally attributed to a leading daily, Babita will be seen on the show as a wrestler against protagonist Rytasha Rathore. The story of the show is set in Haryana which made Babita feel at home with the dialect and accent.
Here's what Babita said-
"I am excited about appearing on Badho Bahu. I liked the concept of a father-in-law encouraging his bahu's talent — it's progressive. Personally, I wouldn't want to give up on wrestling; I strongly believe that a girl shouldn't feel any less than a man and should strive to create a mark for herself."
The story of sisters Geeta and Babita Phogat was told by Aamir Khan's Dangal. The movie was a super-hit and has garnered love and appreciation not only from India but from other parts of the world as well.
Geeta is Babita's elder sister and was seen in the show Khatron Ke Khiladi recently.
