She is also the first-ever Indian woman wrestler to have qualified for the Olympics. She is currently sponsored by JSW Sport under the Sports Excellence Programme.

Her success story is filled with a lot of struggle and obstacles which she managed to overcome with hard work and determination. She is an inspiration to millions of girls in the country to go after your dreams regardless of the difficulties that you may encounter.

A true story featuring a real inspiration, Geeta Phogat (the first Indian woman to win a gold medal in Wrestling at the Commonwealth Games). Geeta comes from a conservative and patriarchal village, Balali in Haryana where wrestling was always considered a man’s sport.
The film is a depiction of her journey and how she overcame societal norms, busted several myths, fought resistance from her whole community and wrestled her way to success, all because she had the inner strength and the will of steel to achieve her dreams.

She is also the first woman wrestler to represent India at the Olympics.
