Both the audiences and critics have liked Aamir Khan’s Dangal. However, Phogat sister’s coach PR Sondhi possesses some other opinion. PR Sondhi has been a trainer to Geeta and Babita prior to the Commonwealth Games in the year 2010.
In the movie, the coach has been shown in a negative light which is the reason of dissent for PR Sondhi. Coach has been aware of the fact that there are some fictional elements in the movie. However, he cannot believe that it has been done on his expense.
Character of the coach has been named as PR Kadam which is loosely based on his life. Mahabir Singh Phogat is known by the coach for a long time and he has coached Geeta and Babita for more than three years. However, Mahabir has not interfered in his coaching ever.
Due to portrayal of his character in this manner, reputation of the coach has been hurt. According to the PR Sondhi, the coach’s character has been showcased as the task master. More than four coaches have been present in the training centre. However, they have not been showcased them in the movie at all.
The locking up scene in the Commonwealth Games 2010 has been completely fictitious. Here, the coach has stopped Mahabir and does not allow the father to cheer his own daughter. Due to distortion of the fact, life of the coach can be ruined forever.
Following to movie watch, PR Sondhi has decided to go to the Wrestling Federation for a discussion. The coach may meet Aamir Khan as well to seek explanation.
Training instructor for the movie Kripa Shankar Bisnoi has been a student of PR Sondhi as well. During chat with Aamir, the PK actor has asked PR Sondhi, general questions regarding wrestling only. Nothing apart from it has been discussed at the time. The makers should have made him aware about the portrayal of coach’s character.
