In 2016, Suhani Bhatnagar debuted as an actress in the sports drama biography Dangal, directed by Nitesh Tiwari. Based on the Phogat sisters and their father Mahavir Phogat, the movie stars Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Zaira Wasim, and Aparshakti Khurana. Suhani portrayed Babita Phogat’s younger self in it. Dangal was a huge critical and financial hit when it came out.
The film Dangal tells the narrative of Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former wrestler who, in defiance of societal stigmas, chooses to train his daughters for the Commonwealth Games in order to accomplish his ambition of winning a gold medal for his nation. Though first doubtful, the girls gradually develop an interest in wrestling and win national titles.
