Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat brought laurels to India by becoming the first woman wrestler to win a gold medal at the 18th edition of Asian Games.

Vinesh has been winning accolades and receiving congratulatory messages from every corner for her brilliant performance and among those who congratulated her for the feat was Bollywood superstar and Dangal actor Aamir Khan.

Interestingly, Aamir used his popular dialogue – Mhaari chhoriyan chhoron se kam hai ke – from the movie Dangal, a film based on the life and achievements of Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, cousin sisters of Asian gold medallist Vinesh Phogat and daughters of Mahavir Singh Phogat.

Congratulating Phogat, Aamir took to her Twitter handle, writing “Congratulations Vinesh for winning the Gold in the Asian Games. We are all so proud of you. Love, Aamir and the team of Dangal. Mhaari chhoriyan chhoron se kam hai ke!”

Aamir’s congratulatory message was reciprocated in a similar style by Vinesh's uncle and former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. 

He tweeted, “Mhari chhoriyan chhoron se chaar kadam aage hai ji (our daughters are ahead of sons)”.

Vinesh Phogat bagged a gold medal at the ongoing Asian Games in Indonesia in the 50 kg category.

Vinesh had earlier won a bronze medal in the 48kg category at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

She also won back-to-back gold medals in Glasgow and Gold Coast Commonwealth Games this year.
