Aamir Khan released the first song of his film Dangal, ”Haanikaarak Bapu” Children’s Day. Featuring child actors Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar as the protagonists and Aamir Khan as the antagonist ‘Hanikarak Bapu’ wittily summarizes the training journey of the wrestlers Geeta and Babita Phogat under their staunch father and trainer, Mahavir Singh Phogat.
The song showcases the prolonged rigorous training sessions undergone by Geeta and Babita Phogat on the behest of their father Mahavir Singh Phogat, where they seen working out really hard, training their bodies to be wrestlers, and facing the wrath of their father, who is shown to be extremely strict with them in their training. While Geeta and Babita Phogat identified very well with the song, they also had a laugh riot while watching the song with their father.
The Phogat sisters shares, “After seeing the song, we literally relived our childhood. We felt all of this is actually happening with us again, our training, the way our father used to shout at us, etc. We really enjoyed watching the song. Aamir Khan has put in a lot of hard work and has correctly replicated our father.”
“Haanikaarak Bapu” is not only a humorous toast to relentless father’s, but is also an entertaining treat to movie buffs as it gives insights into the story line of Dangal.
