The Pro Wrestling League’s star quotient is all set to take a massive hit after the Phogat sisters, who are in the limelight following a blockbuster biopic on their struggle, were rendered doubtful for the ongoing season.
The much in demand real-life ‘Dangal’ girls -- Geeta and Babita -- were roped in by the Uttar Pradesh franchise, which also exploited the success of Aamir Khan-starrer Bollywood movie and chose to name their team ‘UP Dangal’ in PWL-2. However, the two star wrestlers are now uncertain to take any further part in the tournament.
While there are conflicting reports on Geeta’s status, Babita has been laid low by an injury.
According to the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), replacements have been sought by the UP team for both.
