“Har parent proud feel karta hai ki woh apne bache ke naam se jana jata hai. Hamari kya identity thi? Hume jo recognition mila hai woh to Suhani ki wajah se hi mila hai, ki ye ‘Dangal girl ke parents hain’, jahan bhi jana ho uski recognition hoti thi… har ek ko apna bacha bahut acha lagta hai par hamara bacha hume bahut proud feel kara ke gaya hai (Every parent feels proud of their child. We were recognised everywhere as ‘Dangal girl’ Suhani’s parents. Our daughter made us very proud before she left us),” Suhani Bhatnagar’s mother said as she teared up.

Aamir Khan had invited Suhani to his daughter’s wedding

She also said that actor Aamir Khan had invited Suhani and his family to his daughter Ira Khan’s wedding in January 2024. However, due to Suhani’s health, they had to give it a miss. Suhani was seen in the role of young Babita Phogat in Aamir Khan’s 2016 film Dangal.

Pooja said in Hindi, “Aamir Khan has always been in touch with her (Suhani). We had not informed him about her till now because we had been so tensed ourselves. Whenever we sent him a message, he promptly responded and called us personally. He had a close bond with Suhani from the start. Even when his daughter (Ira Khan) got married recently, he had invited us all properly, we also got a call. But we could not go as Suhani had her fracture at that time. Therefore, we could not travel.”

Suhani’s father confirmed that she died after suffering from dermatomyositis, a rare inflammatory disease that causes skin rash and muscle weakness. She also suffered from a leg fracture some weeks ago and was admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, on February 7.

Investigation will reveal the cause of Suhani’s death

Dr Dnyaneshwar Tonk said that what is the main cause of the death of Suhani Bhatnagar is a matter of investigation but due to the reaction of medicine, the filling of water in the body cannot be ruled out. When a person has a fracture, he is given various types of medicines along with treatment, so that there is relief from pain. It also contains heavy medicines. In such a situation, if any patient has any problem with those medicines, he/she should inform his/her doctor.
