Aamir Khan, who will be seen playing the character of Geeta Phogat's father in Dangal, has planned to attend the real life wrestler's wedding.

Aamir will play the role of wrestler Mahaveer Singh Phogat in the movie Dangal. The latter is the father of female wrestler Geeta Phogat, whose marriage is soon to be held.

Aamir will attend the event along with his reel life daughters Fatima Sana Sheikh and Sanya Malhotra. The director of the film Nitesh Tiwari will also join them. Spokesperson of Aamir said in a statement, "Aamir is extremely attached to the Phogat family and is looking forward to attending Geeta's wedding. He has taken all these efforts to be a part of the ceremony in her native village in Haryana."

Aamir apparently has become very close to the Phogat family during the shoot of the film. The wedding will be held on November 20. Aamir was initially scheduled to shoot for Advait Chandan's film on that day.

But he has now rescheduled everything to be there with her on her big day. Geeta is the eldest daughter of the four daughters and is an international wrestling champion. The wedding will take place in Geeta's village in Haryana.

The movie Dangal is a biopic on the life of the veteran wrestler and his two daughters, Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari. Both the girls are international wrestlers. Mahaveer has two other daughters too.

Dangal is one of the most awaited flicks of this year and is slated to be released on December 23.
