Wrestling champion Babita Phogat was currently shooting for &TV’s popular show Badho Bahu where she was to fight Badho aka Rytasha Rathore in the Akhada. Coincidentally, Babita’s birthday was around the same time as her shooting dates and the committed wrestler decided to continue to work. And elaborate shoot of fight sequences through the day didn’t leave Babita anytime to celebrate even post wrap up. But despite the hectic schedule, the cast and the crew of the show made sure that her birthday is made special and celebrated truly in Basho style. Post shoot, everyone gathered to surprise her with cakes, flowers, food and music to make it memorable. Babita was overwhelmed with this gesture from the crew and later indulged in the celebrations with them. Commenting on the same, Rytasha Rathore aka Badho said, “It's not every day that you get to sing happy birthday to an Olympian athlete! It was a really special day for everyone on set. Babitaji was an absolute delight to work with.

She's a brilliant young achiever and I hope she inspires more young women to explore their potential.
