Every year ‘Band Baajaa Bride With Sabyasachi Mukherjee’ brings forth stories of real women that hit close to the heart. Our first ‘Band Baajaa Bride’ this season is from a small village with a big story.
The girl immortalised in Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’, Babita Phogat is the living embodiment of a woman in a man’s world, effortlessly beating them at their own sport.
When Babita Phogat became only the fourth female wrestler in the country to qualify for Olympics, her name was etched in the history books forever. The Phogat sisters — Geeta, Babita Kumari, Priyanka, Vinesh, Sangita — have represented India in premier events like the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, World Championships, Asian Championships and won the top prize in most events.

The girl who is the ‘bad guy’ when in a ring, is a girl with a soft heart. Her dream goes beyond wrestling medals, as she finds something in common with Priyanka Chopra. Remember the sindoori red Sabyasachi lehenga that the actor had custom-made for her wedding? “Meri ichcha thi ki main woh wala lehenga pehnu”, it’s Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s rootedness in the culture of his home state that brings every Indian bride to him.
The rawness of a sports star merges with the elegance of a bride as we see Indian wrestling champion Babita Phogat become a Sabyasachi bride.
While Chopra completed her wedding look with a multi-layered necklace encrusted with a generous dripping of diamonds, Babita Phogat opted for a gulband neckpiece that’s an offshoot of the classic choker embedded with polkis.
