The Indian sports and entertainment community is in mourning following the tragic passing of Suhani Bhatnagar, known for her role as the young Babita Phogat in the critically acclaimed film “Dangal.” At just 19 years old, Suhani’s untimely demise on February 16 has left her family, friends, and fans heartbroken.

In a profound show of sympathy and respect, wrestler Babita Phogat, whom Suhani portrayed in the film, made her way to the late actress’s residence in Faridabad. Babita Phogat provided support to Suhani’s grieving family and used her social media platform to share poignant images from the visit, where she is seen paying homage to her young counterpart.

Captioned with an expression of deep sorrow for the loss of Suhani, Babita wrote, “After the death of Suhani Bhatnagar, who played my childhood role in the film Dangal, today I reached her Faridabad residence and paid my tribute to her and consoled the family members and expressed my condolences. Om Shanti.” The photographs depicted a somber Babita standing before Suhani’s framed photograph with a gesture of prayer, as well as comforting Suhani’s bereaved mother.

The news of Suhani’s death has shaken those closest to her and the film fraternity at large. Upon learning of the tragedy, Babita had earlier shared a heartfelt note conveying her disbelief and shock, while seeking peace for Suhani’s soul and fortitude for her family to face this period of immense grief.

Suhani Bhatnagar’s family has disclosed that she suffered from dermatomyositis, a rare and severe inflammatory condition, which ultimately led to her demise. Suhani had been under medical care at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi during her fight with the disease.

The film industry, too, expressed profound sorrow over the loss. Aamir Khan Productions, the banner behind “Dangal,” shared a stirring tribute on social media, emphasizing the young actress’s outstanding talent and essential role in the success of the film. They extended their deepest sympathies to Suhani’s mother, Pooja, and the rest of the family, commemorating Suhani as a permanent star in their hearts.

The film “Dangal,” released in 2016, featured Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat, Babita’s father, and was directed by Nitesh Tiwari. It rose to monumental success, becoming one of India’s highest-grossing films ever. Sanya Malhotra, who portrayed the adult version of Babita Phogat, also took to social media to express her disbelief and sorrow, mourning the loss of her extraordinary young colleague.

Zaira Wasim and Fatima Sana Shaikh starred alongside Suhani in “Dangal,” playing the child and adult versions of Geeta Phogat, Babita’s sister. Both actresses, along with the entire cast and crew of “Dangal,” are undoubtedly feeling an immense void left by Suhani’s passing.

As the industry and fans continue to reconcile with the departure of such a promising young talent, the messages of condolence and tributes pour in, each reflecting the indelible impact Suhani Bhatnagar made in her brief, yet vibrant life.

“Dangal” not only broke box office records but also left an enduring message of courage, perseverance, and family values — a legacy that Suhani Bhatnagar will forever be a part of. As the entire nation bids farewell to this shining young star, her spirit and the memories of her poignant performance will continue to inspire for generations to come.
