Fatima played the role of Geeta Phogat in the film. Today she has become the third wife of Aamir Khan. Well this is his personal matter. But this same Aamir Khan will make Satyamev Jayate program and speak on the evils of Hindu child marriage and dowry system?? We live in a country where there are such hypocrites who talk about women’s rights in “TV-programs” like Satyamev but are ready to marry the girl whose father they play..”
