She could've been the head girl of a small town school.

wrestling or tune into the incredible journey of hardship and sacrifice that built the Phogat sisters and others of their kind.
But there's one scene in the movie that left me arrested - as the crowds rose to leave, were two images just before the credits rolled, of two women, so unlike each other - Fatima Sana Shaikh (who played Geeta) and beside it, the real Geeta Phogat - dark skinned, muscular, angular features, undone eyebrows, unstyled hair held back by a plastic bow and a bright smile.
She could've been the head girl of a small town school. Not quintessentially beautiful or sexy. She was just an ordinary looking girl who had done something extraordinary.
